Green Bay Packers head coach held his typical day-after-game press conference on Monday, but had nothing to offer on the status of rookie running back Eddie  Lacy and the concussion he suffered against the Washington Redskins. "We'll have an update for you on Wednesday,' said McCarthy. Lacy sustained his concussion in first quarter of Sunday's [...]


They'll hold him out until after the bye. No way they risk a follow up concussion.

ESPN

Quote:
“To be honest with you, on the first one it looked like the running back was kind of going downhill and when Brandon went for the tackle it looked to me like it was perfect. And then all of a sudden when [Lacy] ducked his head, I couldn’t tell -- I didn't see the TV copy, I just saw the video -- and that’s exactly where the contact was,” Shanahan said. “The second one on the sidelines, that’s what you’re supposed to do. That’s a legal hit.”

Can I just angrily say this:

For the record, I hope Merriweather is not just fined but out for the season. The piece of shit.

If that's Shanahan's concept of a perfect tackle then he should probably be suspended too for the sake of the Washington Redskins and every team they play against.

His broncos were dirty teams and the redskins are no different now based on yesterday's showing. Wouldn't mind seeing the pricks go 0-16 this year.

Ok, even if Lacey lowered his head, isn't there a rule about leading with the crown of your helmet? It was called spearing when I was playing in high school.

I can't see Lacy moving his head at all. You may lower your head when you are going forward but he is falling to the side. The natural tendency is to keep your head up so you can see what is going on not let your head flop to the side like a newborn with no muscle strength.

Lacy was just falling forward because of momentum. He never lowered his head. The NFL really needs to work harder to enforce these targeting rules in order to protect their players - you don't want to mess with head injuries.

I almost think I am the only one who only thinks these hits should not be penalties on the field. Have the replay official look at the hits after the play and if the hit is deemed severe enough have them ejected. Far worse than a penalty. We have seen that the only thing players care about is not being able to play and hitting them hard in the pocket. Spearing should be a suspension

I think college instituted something like that this year if I'm not mistaken.
