even though it wasnt a true horse collar tackle i can kind of understand the Vickerson fine, but Von Miller being fined is just some total B.S. picked up the flag when he was blindside blocked and nothing. what a joke this league is. Evil or Very Mad Mad

Its really not a joke. I cant believe some people are acting like this is ridiculous....

Its a rule. You cannot tackle the Quarterback below the knees. Anybody that says its a joke is just being a homer. Im not even saying its Vons fault, its just a rule, and a rule is a rule. You have to play to the rules just like a Safety cant hit a defenseless receiver.

Von is appealing it. Von's response (from Denver Post):

Quote:
"How am I supposed to know if he threw the ball or not?" Miller said. "I was down on the ground -- actually the guard facemasked me and threw me into the quarterback. I'm supposed to what? Stand straight up and continue with the tackle?"


Is it fair? Not really. But Von is a big boy, he'll be just fine.
