Oh COME ON!!! Football is a rough game. There will be hard hits, there willbe injuries, that is the risk you take when you choose to enter the NFL. Roger Goodell and the NFL Front Office are [ruining] football, it's saddening.

I think this is probably a knee-jerk reaction on the part of the NFL due to all the concussed QB's from last week's games.

Not fair to Ed on this one though, as it appeared to me that Sanders lowered his head to draw that penalty, imho.

They need to ammend the rule because it is impossible for a defender to adjust the height on their hit when they are already aiming low and the "defensless" reciever ducks his own head to brace for impact. The ducking of the head should count as a football move...

3 hits in 3 years??? We are going back three seasons to penalize players? come on now. Reed isn't even putting people out of the game, he get's hurt more than his opponent does. goodness gracious...

i am not happy about this...I understand the flag..im over that..but a suspension??? If you really look at the hit it looked like reed was hitting with his arm but the player put his head down so it looked like a head-to-head but it wasn't reeds intention..ughhhh

How did Pitta get a concussion? Did Clark hit him helmet to helmet? With his kevlar lined helmet?!?

3 times in 3 years. Is this the rule?

It is about safety safety safety.
They are going to do anything and everything for it.
It is the game now, get use to it.

I have so much respect for ed reed but he is the worst tackler on the team. He lunges in with his shoulder every time and thats how he gets hurt. I feel better having James Ihedibo back there for San Diego. Ed Reed is without a doubt one of the best safties ever but he is just wearing himself down at this point.

thats what I'm thinking before the rule change-- and it was a hit on Brees in 2010. Ed Reed with his neck issues would be the last to lead with his head.
I thought the hit by Clark on Pitta was worse.

They really need to look at these head to head hits when the receivers lower there helmets into an oncoming tackler. Its been killing these calls for a while now.
