Two helmet-to-helmet hits on Green Bay Packers running backs have Washington safety Brandon Meriweather a little lighter in the pocketbook.

I would say he should be suspended as long as Lacy is out, but he will already be out that long.

Will be interested to see if he learned anything when he does get back.

Slap on the wrist. Nothing in the NFL will ever change with these types of penalties. Two perfect shots of Meriweather targeting the head of a runner, and succeeding, and all they can come up with is 42K?

He's been fined $40K for a helmet-to-helmet hit before (after winning an appeal to decrease the fine from $50K)... that extra $2K on a 7 digit salary will learn him!

The victim is a Packer in this case, so I'm all for as heavy a punishment as possible, but sometime, the shoe will be on the other foot - or even just somebody hitting whoever the hell it is.

Call me evil; Call me old-fashioned; Whatever, but I just can't get into this whole mentality of no helmet to helmet/put a skirt on the QBs/ don't hit a "defenseless" receiver/ all that silly crap.

These guys get paid multiple millions to play a fun game that almost any of us would give almost anything to be good enough to play. Part of what they get paid so much for IMNHO, is the risk - and really it is a damn small risk even with helmet to helmet contact - of getting their brains scrambled. If they aren't up to that risk, let them quit the game and give up that HUGE money they get paid.

Letting them take the risk cost the guys who write the checks a lot of money. Whether anyone likes it or not that = change. Also the truth is we don't really know that much about the human brain and how impacts like that effect it. Unless you are some sort of brain expert you aren't really very qualified to say it's a "really damn small risk".

GoPack1984 (9m) : I hope not. Please be something like 41-28 Packers.
uffda udfa (16m) : I agree with Chmura. This looks like a double 40 burger.
uffda udfa (20m) : The hug on the sidelines?
uffda udfa (21m) : What seemed so emotional?
Zero2Cool (38m) : No, but I am curious why that seemed so emotional. I might be reading into it too much.
uffda udfa (50m) : Anyone ever get confused looking at Alex Van Pelt thinking it's MM?
uffda udfa (2h) : I hope they aren't going to dial it down believing in destiny .
Zero2Cool (3h) : Jason Wilde: Packers "feel like a team of destiny"
uffda udfa (4h) : They'll need all the Julio Joneses they can get.
Zero2Cool (5h) : Chmura: "I'll tell you this: Atlanta's going to score 40 points. They are. The #Packers are going to have to score 41."
Zero2Cool (10h) : Damn-Falcons coach Dan Quinn tells reporters that WR Julio Jones (foot) will be limited this week but will be “ready to rock” on Sunday.
Zero2Cool (10h) : Packers defense has a red zone INT in each of the last 3 games... Hyde with two of them. (One being the clutch 4thQ INT vs DET in Week 17)
Zero2Cool (11h) : Randall Cobb, Damarious Randall, Quentin Rollins, James Starks, Clay Matthews, Ty Montgomery & Jared Cook. OUT
Zero2Cool (11h) : Packers inactive list when they lost 33-32 to the Falcons week 8.

Smokey (12h) : Zero, I believe that you and some others place too much emphasis upon data. no harm intended.
Zero2Cool (13h) : It’s the 1st time since 1970 all 4 conference championship teams finished the regular season on winning streaks of 4+ games
TheKanataThrilla (13h) : Salt mine. Love it.
TheKanataThrilla (13h) : The refs kept that game close. We should have blown them out early.

uffda udfa (19h) : Great news.
Zero2Cool (23h) : Jordy has "legitimate hope" to play, per @RobDemovsky.
Zero2Cool (23h) : Packers had one call on defense if called, no issue, wans't called. I didn't watch OL so dunno. I watched WR's
Zero2Cool (23h) : Dallas OL had some holds weren't called and 2 defensive holds, not called.
uffda udfa (23h) : I think the Pi vs just a holding call is a legit complaint. Terrible call.
