The NFL has said that it will emphasize horse-collar tackling in 2012. And the emphasis begins with a $15,750 fine imposed against Cowboys left tackle Tyron Smith.

I'm just going to believe in my head that this fine is for his performance and not the horse-collar. His play warranted a fine Confused

Ill take that fine all day to stop that touchdown. If he scored we might have been looking at a different game.

Nothing is official until Billy Spikes reports it Wink


Eh, not a big deal to me. It was worth it, because that was a game saving tackle

Am I missing something here? Did you guys hear WHEN the NFL said they were going to emphasize this??? Because I sure didn't.

This is so much bull. There are times when a player can't do anything but horse collar somebody to the ground. The biggest it should be is a flag, but a fine like it's helmet to helmet? GTFO.

Wonder if the roles was reversed would the Giants get fined

I don't have specific dates but the league has been cracking down on this for some time. Goes back to when Roy Williams horse collared a few guys and they suffered injuries.

Well he should have just ran faster and got in front of him and wrapped him up around the wast with proper technique and not worried so much about stopping the touchdown. Rolling Eyes

It didn't look like the typical "RW" version. If I remember correctly he barely got his hands on the shoulder pads. I don't know, like I said, maybe I just missed the severity of it.
