Just because its a big hit, doesn't mean it's illegal. Its a contact sport, people get hurt, they realize this, get over it. If you don't want to get hurt, play tennis, or is the national tennis association going to remove the ball incase someone gets hit by it? Perhaps virtual tennis will the the tennis of the future.

Ed hit that young man on his shoulders or in his chest. I felt the hit while sitting in my chair watching it.

Clean hit, all the way. Dude is playing the game of football and gets yet another penalty for doing exactly what he's supposed to do. I applaud Ed for putting the smack down, and he should continue to do so. Maybe Cruz and others will think twice about catching the ball...like Dustin Keller...hehe

And it's only going to get worse, my friend. They implement these calls and rules under the guise of "player protection", when it's really about "lawsuit protection."

It's like taking checking out of hockey. They're changing the core of the game, and not for the better.

I expected a penalty for his hit, because any receiver who gets hit that hard and doesn't get up right away is going to draw a flag, regardless of legality.

The penalty for Torrey Smith's block was atrocious. I could understand if it's on the other side of the field, but that block was key to springing the ball carrier forward.

A horrendous call in my opinion, and I expect Reed to get suspended for week 17 for his hit.

Maybe Goodell wants the players to wear lingerie and play lingerie football. Football is BECOMING A JOKE AND HARD TO WATCH ANYMORE.

Ed Reed should some give some advice to that Seahawks player who got flagged for playing good defense. Honestly, the rules have gotten so out of hand that the refs are eager to throw a flag for player safety even if it was a good clean hit. The game has gotten so fast, the refs can't keep up with the pace of the game and neither can the NFL.

If they end up fining him, I'm inclined to send in a few bucks to the NFL to help Ed out. I may end up storing them in my armpit a while first for a little added bonus to show what I think of that call.

I doubt if Reed gets suspended. He didnt lead with his helmet. I still think they should review it during the game. Something like that could and has won or lost games for some teams.

It was a legal hit. The good news is if he is suspended for one game, we already won the division and the last game doesn't mean much. Don't change the way you play the game ed. Love your hard hitting attitude.

They're going to have to come up with a new penalty: "15 yard penalty for playing football on #20 of the defense."

LOL!!

Nah, probably the Nintendo Tecmo Bowl; because it's safer. Although the thumb blisters developed from those controls were horrible!! So they'll have to play with the "Power Glove." ;)
