    For those watching SNF. I hope our boy is ok. I know he wasn't too popular with some in these parts, but obviously we wish him well. Hate to see it.

    Ellis Hobbs victim of helmet to helmet collision.

    He Didn't walk off under his own power. Had to be carted off the field, don't want to speculate but I did not see him move any limbs.

    FWIW, the announcers noted he was moving his limbs.

    I think he did move, he tried to get up and the trainers pushed him back down. Just gave the thumbs up as well

    He's giving a thumbs up. I am so happy to see that.

    But holy hell that replay was absolutely terrible.

    I always liked him because he was a warrior and played through some tough injuries that would have sidelined lesser players. Plus he has a big mouth which is fun. Best wishes to Hobbs.

    Ok thats good didn't see him move. That was scary.

    Collinsworth didn't even note it was a helmet to helmet till after he was knocked out and laying there. But he made note of the rule several times during the trivial samuel call earlier that quarter.

    Hobbs was raising both arms pumping his fists as he was being carted off the field. Good to see.

    At one point, he tried to push himself off the ground, and the doctors and Andy Reid had to stop him.

    I'm hoping that's a good sign, along with the fist-pumping/thumbs up he was giving as he was carted off. Here is hoping it's just a stinger, and they're being super careful.

    Ugly, scary hit... glad to see him giving two thumbs up as they took him off the field on the stretcher.

    Best wishes for a full recovery and no permanent damage.

    Per Andrea Kramer. Ellis Hobbs walked out with a neck brace to rejoin the team on the sideline. This is terrific news considering the way the play looked :rocker:

    Hope these neck injuries don't end his career. Scary hit. Hobbs was one of my favorite players on the pats even though most fans didn't like him. Good luck hobbs hope you'll back playing again this year.

    Yeah, not only was it helmet to helmet, if anyone was observant enough, it was the SAME Giant who Samuel creamed about 10 minutes earlier. It was the new receiver, number 85! It was obvious the guy was humiliated getting twapped by Samuel, falling like a pile of bricks right on his face, while Asante just leisurely took a stroll laughing to himself.
    It was the most obvious case of "Oh, screw this. I'm gonna get even right here... bam!" by a player I've ever seen. Did nobody else notice this? Number 85 was searching out a helmet to helmet on that play to save face. Well, he got one alright.
    And Collinsworth said it just happened by chance. No it didn't. It was intentional. He lowered his helmet down lower than usual to make sure he met Hobbes helmet.
    And it did go in like a turtle. Looked like possible neck vertebrae compression. That's way dangerous, no only for the 4 that are up there, but the nerves running through them. Thank God Hobbes appeared to have movement in all extremities.

    Uhh yea dude I was watching and collinsworth didn't even reference the hit until hobbs was laying there lifeless, it was scary as hell. He kept goin on and on about some bs about ST. Like the scariest aspect of the game didn't just happen.

    Then after that he has the balls to say it wasn't an illegal hit because hobbs wasn't defenseless.

    Really Collinsworth??!!

    Glad to see Hobbs was moving when they took him off and that he was seen walking before the end of the game. that replay looked brutal and it just as easily could have been very ugly...darn scary hit.

    Can Goodell try to fine the announcer (Collinsworth) for his commentary? He realyl showed alot of concern for a player on the field (And yes, I know he can't but someone needs to sit that boy down and tell him to respect the moment).
