Yep. One thing that has never been brought up is that it is illegal in the NFL to intentionally hit a QB at the knees or legs - or something of the sort.
I mean when a d-lineman or LB sees an 0-lineman standing there for instance - he CANNOT cut block him at the knees - that is blatantly illegal!
So why can a d-lineman intentionally spear a QB standing there, with his helmet, and wrap his arm around his leg and twist it????????
All Kimo had to do was reach up and grab him and pull him down instead of diving straight into his knee and twist it?
I realize he might not have done it maliciously - no one can say that other than Kimo - but how many times do you see a d-lineman do this to a QB in the NFL??? Never, that's how often - it hardly ever happens.
It's also a statement as to how poorly the 0-line played last night.
Any ways, what's done is done, all I know is that Pitt fans cried and whined about Thurman's hit on Ben last time that was much less intentional-appearing and Thurman LET UP on Ben and made sure he didn't do anything vicious like what Kimo did.
Marvin is not happy about this and eluded to it in his press conference, and the players were ticked last night and upset about it.
I don't think Kimo gets a free pass and should possibly be fined or suspended. If that were Favre or Manning I guarantee there would've been a flag and a fine, at least, and the announcers would've cried bloody Mary.
