Default Re: Hit on Cutler...

The latter penalty was not called on the field, but technically should have been, and this will be acknowledge by a fine from the league against Dobbins.
The hit doesn't look helmet to helmet. Dobbins' head appears off to the side. The head jerk from Cutler is due to the sudden stop of the rest of his body.

You can't not hit a guy who is running at you. Should Dobbins have stepped aside and allowed Cutler to keep running?

Cutlers injury is his own stupid fault. I bet you he won't do that again.
