The NFL is becoming a joke,you can't be physical any more,they fine you for hitting a player with your shoulder pads.I can see if you hit some one with your helmet by launching your self at some body's head,but now if you graze a helmet the flags come out.Football is becoming softcan't put a lick on a player because your afraid the flag will come out,or you'll get fined for playing football too aggressively.Thank you NFL for making the sport that we all know and love soft.Might as we'll be flag football or arena football.

Where were these flags when Hines Ward was playing?

I never like when Ravens get fines but we just have to live with it.

I saw the play and don't think that Ellerbe could have stopped in time to avoid the collision. Why do they need to make the game into powder puff football?

I really do think some of these collisions are going to happen because the speed of the game and can't be helped when players are playing hard. I think this was a case of a player trying to make a play and was not done maliciously. I never want to see a player seriously injured, so I understand having certain rules for safety, but it would not be the game I love to watch if the league tries to change it too much.
