    There were a lot of them today. Steelers cheap shot artist James Harrison got away with a couple helmet-to-helmet shots against the Browns today. (Well, he got away with it where the zebras are concerned; I don't think the NFL office will overlook it, though.)

    Is Dunta going to be penalized in some way for the hit?

    D-Rob got his bell rung, too; he also had to come out for at least a play due to injury time out.

    Oh he will. That was damned dangerous. It's hits like that, that cause NFLers to have such a crappy quality of like when they get a bit older.

    Throw the book at him.

    Ya fined or suspended. I saw that they threw the flag, but it seems to me that hits exactly like that are why they have put in those new rules about the defenseless receiver. I wouldn't be surprised if they made an example out of Dunta, and set the bar high for future hits like this.

    Nothing wrong with that hit other than the fact that Dunta didn't wrap up.

    WOW. That is a dirty play. Is this a suspendable play?

    It was helmet to helmet on a defenseless receiver.

    No, It wasn't.

    Dunta didn't hit him with his shoulder in his chest...

    He neither led with his helmet, nor hit Jackson in the helmet...

    He might have caught him a little bit on the bottom of his face mask, but anyone who says he hit him helmet to helmet either can't see, or they are blind.

    LOL @ people saying it was a dirty play...

    Nothing dirty about it...

    It was a violent collision, but completely within the rules...

    He broke on the ball and reciever and he arrived almost simultaneously as the ball arrived...He actually led with his shoulder pads, but he cannot help it if there was some incedental contact with the bottom portion Deseasns facemask...

    There was no leading with the helmet from Dunta's end...Look at the clip and you can clearly see he put his shoulder pads in his chest..

    Look at the .47 mark. Dunta clearly led with his helmet, and if you can't see that you are blind.

    I've looked at the whole thing about three times, plus I played it back on TV a few times.

    Sure there is some contact with his helmet, but he did not LEAD with his helmet...

    Not sure what you're looking at, but you are wrong. He led with his shoulder pads.

    There is no way he can make a tackle and hit someone with his shoulder pads without lowering his head. He could have put his face mask into the receiver and kept his head up, but then he would have actually been leading with his helmet.

    Not sure how many of you guys have actually played football, or when the last time you played was, but to say he lead with his helmet after looking at those shots is just asinine.

    His helmet hit the outside shoulder of the receiver...

    (1) that isn't helmet to helmet

    (2) The bulk of his hit was with the top of the shoulder pads to Jackson's chest

    I don't know what you do about "defenseless" receiver


    that was just a bang bang play


    If D-Rob did anything wrong it was not get his head up
