Justice has been served. I really thought Matt Schaub's season was over, or a good portion of it would be missed with a severe concussion. That hit was blatant and illegal in every sense of the word; Guy just charged into Matt and lowered his head and cracked right into Matt's head. I have a hard time believing his intent was anything but ring Schaub's bell...and he couldn't even do THAT right.

Yeah. I was reeeeaaallly worried that Schaub was seriously injured judging by his helmet popping off, and his face while he was laying on the ground.
Of course, that face may also have been a result of losing part of his ear, but either way, illegal, suspension-deserving hit.

Headhunters take note, it ain't gonna be just fines anymore, the NFL is getting rid of these hits.

1 game is rather lenient considering the fact that he could have ended Schaub's career.

A vicious hit that shows intent should warrant at least a 3 games suspension so it can hit home. I have a feeling this won't be the last time we hear from thunder stick Mays this season.

Are you kidding. Mays was going full steam and launched right up into Schaub's helmet.

Try watching your QB get mauled like that and then stay calm about it.

i know what happend but there has a lot worse of hits. to say it was a possible career ender is going over the line. i mean every hit can cause a career ending play...but that hit wasnt even close to being more of a career ender then any other. i mean the dude came back to play in the game.

What you're forgetting is the intent factor. We're not just talking about a bang bang play here. Mays was clearly trying to take Schaub out of the game and the fact that Schaub came back in speaks volumes about his toughness, but that doesn't mean Mays should get by with just a slap on the wrist.

IMO, 1 game is not going to deter this from happening again. The NFL needs to set a precedent or malicious hits like that (with clear intent) are just going to get worse.

i dont think the intent is really there. it wasnt extremely late and it didnt look like a head hunt to me. it was penalty worthy and border line suspension...this is not as egregious as your making it out to be. i do think he meant hit him hard but i dont think he intended on hitting him in the head to take him out.

Really? No intent?

He launched off his feet angled upwards. If you know you can't hit above the shoulders, why even do it?

I think intent was clear as day and I'm not just saying that because I'mI a Texans fan.

im sorry i dont see. i just dont see it as head hunting. i feel it was a poor attempt at a tackle that leaves him very susceptible to a helmet to helmet hit. and im not trying to down play it like it was no big deal, it just isnt this doomsday career ending hit that you make it out to be.

I would say 90% of my HS team had earrings, of course this was a very "urban" HS and the 90s.
