No one is going to "blow out" anyone in that game. I don't see it happening.

That is why McNair should make a statement saying the following:

We politely let the referees and NFL to take care of business like they should regarding that play.

But, they didn't.

This point forward, if this happens again, and under my estimation if it is a similar play or hit, I will immediately put a bounty out on the opposing team's QB or player in question that did the dirty hit in the amount $1 million.

Otherwise, if we don't, our QB can literally be a punching bag and be knocked out for several weeks with nothing more than a cost of doing business fine.

This is ridiculous. Do you really think Brady or Manning would be treated this way? What if we took out Rivers for a week or so considering San Diego's current state affairs?

Bottom line, Goodell, you still have your chance. You either take care of it or we will take care of it in the future.

The choice is yours...

Schaub is our QB and we are going to protect him..."

Jesus, Goodell why didn't you just take his chewing gum away? Could that fine be any weaker? That fine is tantamount to tacit approval imo. What a big giant load of BS.

At that rate of investment, Pitts or Salaam should have laid him out. Heck, their hit would have been legal since the play was still going on and he isn't a QB.

That fine is a bunch of bull. It was a cheap shot, and he knew it. And it was to a Quarterback!!! He'll pass the hat and his locker room buddies will be glad to help pay the fine.

Of course, there's this little devil on my shoulder whispering something about the league's payback for TJ's lousy attitude when he took out Trent Green. I'm not sure he's making much sense, but he seems pretty confident...

That's actually a good point. Have Schaub carted off the field and announce during commercials that he is being treated for a concussion, then I'm sure the fine/suspension will increase.

If other teams are only getting fined these small amounts for hurting players then that should send a message to the Texans Defense. For a small fee which I'm sure that someone else will pick up you can go head hunting and not cost much at all. So go crack some heads.

Screw the fine!!!!!! I wanted the A-H suspended WITHOUT PAY for the rest of the season!! A piddly fine like that means NOTHING to these guys, simply because these multi-billionaire owners will be glad to pick up the tab!!

The fine was too small, but the owners are not allowed to pay player fines.

Don't even need to do that. They can simply pull the 15k out of the kitty from their "kangaroo court" fund.

And that was my point in the beginning of this thread when I brought up Brady taking one to the chin. Cowher has already said he can see it coming. There are only so many times you can throw out the Eff U TD and nto expect someone to take it personally. Someone will roll or take the extra step and wipe the cocky robotic look off of Bradys face and 90% of the country will secretly giggle yet hope he is ok.

Panthers DT Jenkins fined $7,500 for hit on Colts' Manning

November 2, 2007

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -- Panthers defensive tackle Kris Jenkins was fined $7,500 by the NFL on Friday for a late hit on Indianapolis Colts quarterback Peyton Manning.

Jenkins was called for a 15-yard roughing the passer penalty on Sunday for picking up Manning and driving his right shoulder into the turf after the quarterback had thrown a pass late in the third quarter. "
