I expect he'll be fined, as well.

NFL can't fine Peyton and not fine "a lowlife scumbag head-hitter" like DJ.

That would be pretty crappy of the NFL when DJ was clearly leading with his shoulder and Welker ducked into the hit. That was about as clean a hit for a penalty as I can remember.

ANY hit to the head of a defenseless player with any part of your body is a flag and a fine.

If that's the rule, then ok. Still crappy for a guy to get fined because the other guy screwed the pooch. The NFL has become such a wuss league. There should be some common sense involved and culpability on the WR and QB if that's the case. Last week's hit on Welker and last year's hit on Keller were both made while trying to follow the new rules.

In all seriousness, they should just go Rugby style and play flag football. Maybe the salaries would become more reasonable...

The problem is, today the players are faster, stronger, and heavier. The human body can't evolve fast enough to keep up with football's violent side, so the padding they wear and the rules from the NFL are supposed to keep up with that. So I understand what they are attempting to do, but if they aren't more careful, the games are going to become either a big flag fest or tag football.

I'm cool with the penalty, for the most part. I think it should be reviewable, though. As far as fines go, those are definitely reviewed by league officials and guidelines can be put in place for culpability. Did the QB make a bad throw, did the WR/TE/RB make the wrong move, etc. It can't be placed solely on the defensive player to adjust. That's just not right, especially where money is involved. It just sux for a player to do everything right and still get fined.

And if they removed the pads, the players would adjust accordingly.

If there's a fine, all three should split the bill. Peyton for throwing it into the teeth of the defense, Welker for ducking into the hit, and DJ for missing with his shoulder.

They just showed the celebration after the 2 point conversion (getting ready to start the 49ers game)... you know we're always saying (well I'm always saying) it's just the preseason. You wouldn't know that judging how they mauled Labhart after that catch. Griffin pretty much body slammed him.

Good to know that winning (even in the preseason) means a lot to them.
