does anybody have a video to the Conte/LaFell hit?




What else is the guy supposed to do in that situation to not draw a fine?

I think the league just doesn't want to open that can of worms with an opinion of could a guy avoid a hit like that or not... even in cases where it's clear he couldn't.

If they do, then a lot of the deserving fines could become problematic, so they just say... you did it, you pay for it.

There is a fine, but it wasn't announced on Friday.

Don't know what's going on with Brown. I liked him when he was working his butt off to get playing time and becoming a starter. Now it seems like he's turning into Holmes with the first down celebrations and now this...



He has been this way.since Day 1 of his rookie year. Celebrates every catch like he just won the Super Bowl.


Yeah, he's always celebrated, especially on return TDs. Still really good.

Why wouldn't you guys be happy that Brown got fined? If he was a player on my team and did that I'm be embarrassed as hell. I don't mine sack celebrations or even ridiculous TD celebrations, but that's blatant bush league garbage to run backward into the endzone. Can't stand when DeSean Jackson does that crap either. If you make a big catch over the middle when a safety smashes you, then by all means get up and celebrate the first down.

That backwards running just isn't sportsmanship. Would've been hilarious if he fell though and didn't make it to the endzone.

IIR the play right he actually hit him above the knee on the thigh. That wouldn't be illegal.

Considering he was cursing out the officials; his fine better be pretty hefty.

fining a player for roughing the passer is stupid.

The penalty is enough. :/
