Don't see a single person in this thread saying it was a dirty hit, just terrible form. There's no way anyone can argue otherwise on that.


Youre talking about moving targets, the perfect form yove been preaching about the last couple weeks doesnt always work.

Regarding teh Finley injury, its horrible news but in no way is it on the defender.

Perfect form? Yeah keeping your head up is terribly difficult. Doesn't matter if the target is moving or not, look at Gipson's head, he has no idea what or where he is hitting. It's totally on the defender.


I think this goes both ways. From an earlier age, ball carries are taught to run with their heads when contact is made to help prevent injuries. Thats one reason why the NFL made the RB lowering their helmet rule. Who knows, if J-Mike keeps his head up, we aren't having this conversation right now. For whos fault it is, I say its 50/50.

Yeah this is wrong, If this was an open field play, you'd maybe have a point. Finley is being tackled, he's going down to the ground and being dragged down, its not like he dropped down to take on Gipson, he's already half way through being tackled by Ward, when Gipson comes in for a kill shot.
