Jerron McMillian was fined $21K for his hit on Giants WR Bennett. What else is a defender suppose to do now?

McMillian turned himself away to try and prevent helmet to helmet contact. He lowered himself down and did't hit high. Besides not trying to play the game, what else is a DB suppose to do?

Where to hit

These fines by the NFL have become a friggin joke.

Completely agree with your assessment here... there is nothing more a defensive player can do. Unrealistic expectations.

That, or recognize the guy already scored a touchdown, then don't be a dumbass by hitting him and getting a fifteen yard penalty. The cerebral part of this game is underestimated.

Except for the fact that his hit could have jarred the ball lose and potentially made the play incomplete.

Well, he didn't score a TD. With the rules "must maintain control through the process". Hitting clean and hard, can dislodge and prevent a TD. And McMillian hit him clean and hard.

Well, I guess if Baltimore could get screwed out of going to the super bowl by a guy stripping the ball after possession then the Giant receiver could have had it jarred loose. Please explain to me why it should be touchdown when a running back reaches the ball over the goal line and has it knocked out of his hands. Shouldn't that be a fumble then?

The ball carrier (this is not relegated to RB's) has possession and control of the ball when reaching it over the pylon or goal line. A receiver in the process of catching a pass in the endzone does not. That's the difference.

A catch, possession plus one and second foot down; so why does a defender get the right to come jar the ball out when the catch is in the end zone. If the flimsy ass touchdown by the running back counts, so to should the quick catch in the end zone. My old school thinking tells me the ball carrier or receiver should have to have their body in the end zone for it to count, but then again, this is a pussified league in a pussified world.

My point is that if it is an instantanious touchdown for the ball carrier reaching it across the goaline, then the same rule should apply for the pass and reception. If you braniacs can't understand that intense scenario, I guess I'll digress. FFFUUUUUCK!!
