MNF**Las Vegas at Kansas City** (-7.5) (52) (1 Viewer)

No dog in the fight, and maybe im alone but im tired of seeing 300 pound guys plant\land their full weight on qbs and broken collar bones, shoulders etc

Now that I've cooled down, I agree with you. Watching Rich Gannon's backup in the 2000 AFC Championship Game because Tony Siragusa bodyslammed him was a bur in my saddle that hasn't quite gone away. No need for that in the game. It's a cheap way to take somebody out.

Now, we can argue that Jones wasn't doing that, but at least allowing for the discretion of the officials to call it seems like a good idea.

I'm with you.

The lineman tried to land on Carr with his full weight. It was the right call. It wouldn’t have been a fumble if the tuck rule was still in place either.
 
Aikman said "Take the dresses off" last night and is in real hot water this morning. I remember him saying it last night and thinking that won't play out well in the TDS Media, Tua Deranged Syndrome, so expect Troy to face a potential suspension.

Maybe Denis Miller could fill in for a 1 week replacement while Troy does some soul searching, if not then Kornheiser would be perfect with Buck.
 
Does anyone have video of Carr getting absolutely whacked on that final play after he releases the football? There was an official right there, and in the brief moment I saw, it looked like a defensive player launched himself, left his feet and hit Carr right in the chops. If so, how the heck does that not get called?

That's not even close to the truth.

They showed the replay over and over. Jones had already taken the ball away and he put out his other hand to cushion the fall as much as he could. It was a textbook play by Jones and his reward is the sack/fumble taken away and a bogus RTP penalty. YAY NFL!

That looked perfectly legal to me.
