Defense was just killing me today. That epic 4th quarter collapse was alive and well, but those damn penalties by Clark and Mundy were just killer.

We can argue whether they were leading with their heads or not, but when it comes to defenseless receivers the officials are going to call that crap every single, damn time.

IMO Mundy lead with his shoulder but of course their helmets hit. Same goes for Clark but again when you smack helmets you might as well just hand over your damn wallet and start walking backwards!

I know Mundy means well but damn kid, you're killing us!

Neither were vicious hits to me. In neither case were the receivers down or out of the play by any means. They were just trying to make a play.

I've seen other teams make those same hits and the flag is not thrown. Especially when it's our receivers on the other end of those hits.

Those both were questionable. On the Clark hit the receiver was staying on his feet and the whistle blew just before he hit him, when his momentum was already going at him. The Mundy hit should not have been flagged, the initial point of contact was the shoulder his helmet barely hit him.

Babin had a late hit on Heath similar to those and Sanders got tackled way after the whistle away from the play and neither of those were called. Not to mention the guy throwing Browns shoe across the field.

Clark clearly led with his helmet on a guy who was already stopped. That's a clear penalty, no question about it. Anyone who thinks it wasn't needs to take their homer goggles off (no offense.)

Mundy's hit was a bit questionable. He hit the receiver that was potentially defenseless and hit him high. That's usually called these days against any receiver not wearing black and gold.

Mundy knew it as soon as he got up. I really can't fault him on that play, it was close, their helmets hit and the officials toss that flag like clockwork every time. Then again I didn't think he lead with his head against Heyward-Bey either...

Unless it was against Wallace. 3 blatant interference/holding calls that weren't called against him. I was f*cking fuming.

I didn't think it was when I saw it, but I saw a reverse angle replay on that one that made it look a lot worse. Can't play like that anymore, the NFL just won't allow it. Anytime your helmet hits the other guys, no matter how it hit or what the reason (like you were aiming for his ankles and he dove at your head) you're gonna get flagged.

the refs seemed a little overzeolous today. especially towards the steelers.

I was waiting for Harrison to get flagged on Mundy and Clark's hit. I would definitely say they were overzealous in their flag tossing yesterday, but should we expect anything less?

There's a good chance Mundy will be suspended for this weeks game. Thoughts on his replacement??

He wont get suspended. Real time it looked like helmet to helmet but the replay clearly shows that he hit him in the shoulder and their helmets barely grazed eachothers.

Mundys was BS he lead with the shoulder. IMO

But Clark has to wrap up on a tackle eventually! I love the way Clark plays but he rarely wraps up and the when the helmets collide???

Anybody want to guess how much the fines will be for these too? Clark can afford it but Mundy's bank account is taking some nice hits this year. If he keeps this up he'll be asking for an advance on his allowance..lol

I don't think Mundy should even be fined, he lead with his shoulder, any safety in the league would have done the same thing. We'll see though

watch the tape again... he lead with the crown (top) of his helmet. hits like that is how people end up in wheelchairs (for the tackler). SEE WHAT YOU HIT.

Would the NFL be better off like some rugby leagues? in that you have to attempt a wrap-up... its only a matter of time before people start complaining b/c players (especially DBs) always will go low to avoid a fine... they will eventually start to blow peoples knees out.

I wish he'd sail into the Burmuda Triangle. I don't want him dead; but I'd like him missing, never to return. Like Tom Hanks in the movie, " Castaway"

Never happen, but the only way to stop leading with your helmet is to play without one. . .

Mundy is useless; in my house, he has made it to the list of unspoken names.
