    He obviously hasn't, but seems to have been watching too much :)

    Thought this would make a different talking point ;)

    I would trade Mayo-Mistake and a second round pick to Oakland for McClain.

    I'd be too scared to throw a flag if I was standing within 20 feet of someone who can throw a grown man with pads on to the ground like a little girl.

    It may look good on the highlight reels, but that was a stupid penalty to make. Hopefully he will continue to make stupid mistakes since the Raiders barely got by the Rams and the Pats have a first round pick on the line.

    How about Oaklands first round pick. Although i still believe Mayo has a great deal of talent just not as much as McClain

    I thought McClain would be ROTY....I guess being a Raider eliminates that possibility

    Mayo and a first or second rounder for another Inside Linebacker?

    Talk about moronic.

    If it was Brandon Meriweather and a first for Eric Berry, that I would listen to

    The rules clearly state you cannot lift a player off his feet and slam him into the ground. That is a textbook personal foul.

    It may be but it shouldn't be, maybe im just old school :). If you are strong enough to do that to another man, you shouldn't be flagged IMO.

    If someone did it to Brady and ended his season would you feel the same way? I don't have any problem with the rule in this case. That is excessive and could get a player hurt. I have problems with some of the hard hits considered personal fouls these days though.

    You shouldn't be able to do it to a qb, but WR/RB...fair game players get hurt in the NFL on less than that, see Kevin Kolb and Brady injuries. I just think that the NFL has really gone out of its way to protect some of the players. Defenseless receivers and such but come on, that was pretty impressive.

    That's a tackle that's used pretty much exclusively to injure people. It is never the easiest or most effective way to bring down a ballcarrier, just the easiest way to hurt him. That's why it's illegal.

    While the ref announced the penalty, it seemed he was celebrating it!

    Great... another douche in the league ;)

    That's classless, gratuitous and frankly, a low blow considering the size difference between the two players. If i were the head coach of the Rams, I would have sent my biggest OL guy after him the next play and had him slam him the same way. That's a bull**** move right there.

    What do you expect playing under a coach who sparked his assistant out?

    Did anyone see those Pitt defenders absolutely pick him up and pound Vince Young head first into the ground without a penalty?....it was nothing less than a bodyslam..should have been a 10 yarder at least

    Here is the video...tell me if this does NOT deserve a penalty and maybe a fine as well....

    Ok, say a 270lb DE or LB does that to Wes Welker and knocks him out for the year, you still ok with that? A guy who has a hundred pounds or so on Welker slamming him into the ground like a rag doll.

    Sorry, there is a reason that type of tackle is not legal and I agree with it. I have more problem with the horsecollar tackle rule (especially since it was created primarily because one player was tackling that way and injuring players) than the rule that bans the bodyslam.

    It is impressive at first, but then you remember that if McClain had dropped him a little faster, he could have landed on his neck, and been seriously injured!

    Not a fun tackle to be on the receiving side of! Been dump tackled a few times in rugby (where it is legal)!

    Its a fairly dangerous play no doubt but football is a dangerous game, I see it as no worse than a blindside hit on a punt return where the guy has absolutely no chance because he can't see the player thats running at almost 20mph. If that is a flag, why isn't this?
