The hit on Cobb is a tough call.
The NFL is making it harder for the defensive players to make a tackle that doesn't have the chance of causing injury.
I think that forcing these guys to go low is going to increase the number of knee injuries around the league.

McMillen doesn't seem to want to accept responsibility for his poor play.

I don't care for the result but I don't have an issue with the hit. The league has put the defense in the position where they have to shift the window they target. Elam didnt spear him, or go for his head...these type of hits are an unfortunate inevitability in an effort to try to protect the head.

i dont want anybody to get hurt , esp.. our team but you cant hit the head which is a good rule, so you go low to get the legs to tackle, im sorry i dont think it was a dirty play in the heat of battle !!

What happened to tackling the 3 feet or more of body above the knees, and below the shoulders like we teach kids and I would guess most of us were taught when we were young. This hit was inexcusable.

To be fair, it's easy for us to say how/where a defensive player should hit a ball carrier. Football, at the professional level, is so fast that a player has a split second to aim and hit a player. I have no problem with the hit by Elam. He went low (like the rules allow) and unfortunately it got Cobb directly on the knee.

This play is completely different than Merriweather launching himself head first into Lacy (and also Starks).

EVERY WEEK, we lose a star player to a cheap shot.

It has to end.

If it doesn't then we need a couple goon type players to send a message that our players are going to be protected. You take a cheat shot at one of our guys, you're going to get hurt.

Clearly the officials are not going to protect our guys.

I have a problem with that hit, I understand that defenders have been put in a bad spot forcing them to go lower more often, but the defender look like he was aiming at Cobb knee well before the hit.

A low hit and/or mistakingly hitting someone knee is one thing, but purposely aiming for the knee is another.

I don't know which the defender did, but it looked like he was aiming there to me.

Fortunately (according to reports) he only broke the leg, knee appears to be intact.

KNOCK ON WOOD!
