    That was some hit. I didn't know the neck could move like that.

    for all of the 'Lamar needs to slide' crowd, that's exactly what Paxton was doing

    not sure what an illegal hit does to that argument. If anything Lynch needed to slide earlier than he did to actually avoid the possibility of a hit and thats exactly what Lamar needs to learn to do. An example showing what a bad decision can result in, should strengthen that argument. He needs to get down more, and more importantly, earlier. hes too important to this team and going to be having too many opportunities to get hit as it is.

    Man that was brutal. He waited way too long to start the slide. Ouch

    A QB can slide. A QB can stay in the pocket. A QB can run. A QB is still going to get hit.

    Easy to get lined up like that when you slide. All it takes is one dirty defender willing to take the penalty and fine. I am not looking forward to playing Gregg Williams and the Jets this year.

    Late slide, but the tackler leads with the top of his helmet. Not cool.

    He tried to get greedy and slide at the latest moment. Aside from that, one gif of a player getting hit after sliding, doesn't suddenly make so that there isn't a huge discrepancy in the likelihood of taking a hit when sliding vs. when not.

    Once more, for the people who refuse to learn the way the NFL works these days:

    You cannot go helmet to helmet in the open field. Unless it is blatantly obvious, the defender is ALWAYS wrong. Right or wrong, like it or not, that is how the rule works in reality. Assume the QB is going to get greedy, and aim 10-12 inches lower. Now instead of his ear hole, you're making contact with his chest (and you might even cause a fumble while you're at it). If he chooses to keep going upright, it's his knees that are at risk.

    Aim low and to the side on an anticipated sliding QB. Give defenders some leeway if they are making an obvious attempt to not decapitate a sliding player. For those who continue to make helmet to helmet contact, disqualification and suspensions are in order.

    Perhaps he's not looking forward to playing the Ravens in Baltimore (Thursday, December 12th @ 8:20 p.m.). Maybe by that date LJ will have progressed as a well-rounded QB, Hollywood will be 100% healthy, Boykin will have shook off the rookie jitters, and Hill emerges as a speedy/dynamic complementary RB. Now that would give Gregg Wms nightmares... Bc

    Which is also illegal:
    A rushing defender is prohibited from forcibly hitting in the knee area or below a passer who has one or both feet on the ground, even if the initial contact is above the knee.
    https://operations.nfl.com/the-rules...ng-the-passer/

    I mean, go back and look at the clip: the defender was bent over 90 degrees at the waist, which means he was targeting where the QBs waist would have been, if the QB hadn't decided to half-slide at the last possible second. And the waist is the only place you CAN hit a QB anymore - any higher it's a penalty; any lower, it's a penalty.

    I understand the way the NFL is today, it's going to draw a flag no matter the defender's intent, but the NFL REALLY needs to address when the ball carrier intentionally puts his helmet into the only target-able area left.
