A fine for roughing the passer is baloney. I can see head shots, sure, fine the player for a vicious hit. i dont agree with this. Penalize the team on the field.

That fine is so stupid and unneccesary.

Hopefully Griffen makes a bigger impact this next week. He kind of reminds me of Dwight Freeney, haha.

I kind of figured he'd get fined.

There was a rather flagrant helmet-to-helmet that the refs missed. I'm not sure if that's the hit in question, but I don't think Griffen has any cause for complaint.
