    Should have been fined more than that, IMHO.

    Any punishment at all is more than I was expecting, so I'll take it.

    Should have been fined more or suspended for a game. He is the same guy who broke Anquan Boldin's jaw two years ago in another cheap shot.

    In this case, does "DB" stand for something other than "Defensive Back"?

    Way too low. The conspiracy theorist in me thinks that he did it intentionally.

    My eyeballs told me the same thing too. But i was starting to think nothing would happen, 7,500 is better than nothing.

    Not the first time this scum has played dirty.

    Was also fined $50,000 and suspended a game in 2008 for that disgusting helmet-to-helmet hit on Anquan Boldin.

    Same here. I was just expecting Goodell to turn a blind eye to it so this is a pleasant surprise for me.

    Rex to Tannenbaum: "I think Smith deserves a $7,500 Bonus effective immediately, plus a dinner-on-the-Town for two".

    I guess I should clarify. By intentionally I mean sanctioned by the Jets coaching staff. As in, the best way to cover Welker is to knock him out of the game. Now where's that tin foil hat?

    See, this is where I had to laugh when I read the stories about Ryan and Woody talking about how disappointed they were in Edwards for his DWI. I mean, c'mon. They've brought in Edwards, Holmes, Cromartie -- not high character guys, IMO. Bunch of recidivists reprobates.

    A defensive coordinator's headset would be more appropriate than a tin foil hat. That's called good defense. It's obvious it was part of the game plan, to be implemented as soon as any Jet was near Welker. 7,500, huh? A sweet deal to insure a stagnant Patriots offense at home.
    I'm a Pats freak thru and thru, but I take my hat off to The Jets coaching staff for that one, not a tin foil one either. What, you believe Osawld acted alone too? Gez.

    ==========================================

    I would say that is a true statement.

    Chrebet, Pennington, Coles, Leon, Jenkins all got hurt playing football.

    I remember the Pats knocking out 2 QBs in a matter of 6 plays to start the Jets season.

    Don't hate the player hate the game.

    Mods, please ban this child.

    Gunnails, you should know better. The Smith hit was a deliberate shot to the head. He has a history of doing that and has been suspended for it. None of the cases you mention resulted from dirty hits.

    No, that was a purposeful action on smiths part. I saw him hit Welker with his elbow, it was something right out of the movie 'The Longest Yard'

    This "penalty" is weak sauce but its as much as I expected from Roger Jetdell.

    If it was a Patriot who did this, not only would Jetdell probably have the player banned from the NFL, but we would loose draft picks and get a huge fine.

    Good times....

    Seriously. That blow to the head was dangerous. Thought Goodell would manage to ignore it. At least he slapped the guy on the wrist with a fine.

    You can't expect Jest fans to understand. Their team is usually the one delivering the dirty hits. It's like all those Pittsburgh fans who think Hines Ward never takes a cheap shot.

    What goes around, comes around. Your team talks too much, Jest fans.

    Should have been suspended for 1 game and heavily fined. Smith was obviously trying to put Welker out of the game. The fat bastard Rex probably gave him a game ball.

    That's apples & oranges and you know it. A forearm clock to Welker's noggin that rings his bell and makes him see stars is another thing altogether than administering a torn acl to a quarterback in the pocket.

    It's call underhanded intimidation. Reference 1970's Raiders. Welker had about 4 score's worth of receptions for 8 miles vs. The Jets last year. Of freaking course they want him dinged up on the sideline for a while. Mission-a-freaking-complished.

    And heck if I'm gonna be needled by that other guy who runs a freaking Prog Rock magazine. YOU listen to ELP, not ME. zzzzzzzzz.
