I agree. I expected a fine, maybe not this high but in the neighborhood of $20K. Even if Dobbins thought he was going to run, or was over the line of scrimmage, the ball left Cutlers hand and Dobbins was 4 yards away. If not 4 at the very least 3.5. And he didn't try to let up; he lunged into Cutler. I think it's very fortunate he wasn't suspended.
