Man for crying out loud the 1st guy hit colley a split second before the second defensive player hit him. Both defenders lead with the shoulder. The first defenders contact altered Colley's trajectory and resulted in helmet to helmet contact with the latter, but if you look at the replay the 2nd defenders pads hit before his helmet met Colley's. It wasnt even crown of the helmet contact that was more side of the helmet contract. This is complete BS. I know a dirty and illegal hit when I see it this wasnt. The whole momentum of the game is shot. The NFL is gonna do the same thing the NBA did to me, make me not pay attention until play-off time and then very vaguelly when doing so. Im not even an Eagle Fan , I just like to see a good hard fought game. It was unfortunate but dadgum it the guy got sandwiched in an awkward position and got hurt.

Hand em all flags or maybe play 2-hand touch. I dont even want to watch the game anymore. The colts went right back to the same play and the Eagles looked like they were scared to engage in the tackle. Ok I am done ranting. THis is some Pu$$ ***** shizer!!!!

Couple that with Cole's tapping of Manning's helmet and getting penalized 15 yards w/ 1st down on a 4th and 18 - complete BS.

You can just feel the tune-out. A million or so every Sunday screaming 'This is BS' at their TV sets, and it'll be gone.

NFL football has turned into figure skating where points (well, yards) are awarded on style.

Go back and look at history. A century ago, President Teddy Roosevelt threatened to ban football in the USA, if they didn't change the rules to make it safer for players. They legalized the forward pass to get the game out of the deadly trenches. In 1909, ten college players were killed by in-game injuries.

By the 1950s, there was still no crossing the plane, or knee touching the ground. A runner was whistled down when there were so many defenders on top of him he couldn't crawl any further, and the ball was spotted at that point. Most players played 60 minutes, on both offense and defense. When they got hurt, they played hurt.

Some players admitted after their career that they were disappointed that they never actually killed anybody. Some of the early black players came off the field with cleat holes in their helmets. You think Jackie Robinson had courage?

It's all gone now. Although I bet there are players who want to kill Vick.

That was the most BS penalty I have seen in a long time. Cole's fingers grazed manning's helmet and the reefs gave the colts a first down when it should have been a fumble.
The nfl is becoming a sissy league.

This is the funniest thing I ever saw in a crowd-held sign. Last year, in the Canadian Football League, Calgary won a crucial game over Saskatchewan on a highly disputed call for roughing the quarterback. In the rematch, in the Saskatchewan stadium a week later, out came this priceless sign:
