    Just read on a Bills message board that Shefter reported Vince was fined $12,000 for his hit on Losman. Trying to find a link.

    WILFORK FINED $12,000


    http://www.profootballtalk.com/rumormill.htm

    Adam Schefter of NFL Network reports that Pats defensive tackle Vince Wilfork has been fined $12,000 for his elbow to the knee of Bills quarterback J.P. Losman during Sunday's game between the two teams at Gillette Stadium.

    Video of the play shows that Wilfork was blocked toward Losman, but that Wilfork also threw his elbow toward Losman's knee.

    Losman left the game two plays later, and is expected to miss two more weeks

    If true, that is BULLS--T! I watched the replay at least 10 times and Vince was being tackled by the ankles when he hit Losman. :mad:

    He did lunge his arm out towards Losman but, like Vince said, the last he saw of Losman he still had the ball at the time; releasing it just before the hit.

    Try watching the replay without blue colored glass's.

    I have seen much worse and I am not saying he tried to take out a knee, But big Vince threw the elbow on purpose.

    Whenever I see a hit like that (by "like that", I mean one that gets the QB at the knees, whether "clean" or not), I get nervous about our own TB standing back there. All in all, whatever the verdict on whether it was clean and whatever the fine might have been, it would be better if it had never happened.

    He threw the elbow because Losman had the ball at the time - he was then pushed down lowering the elbow from a midsection hit to a below the knee hit. IMO.

    They had to fine him; but that's the last I want to hear about it.

    No? No what? No he was not tackled by the ankles or no you are not saying that? Because if you are saying that he was not tackled, it is you that needs to see the replay.

    That's the first time I've heard "Wilfork" and "lighter" in the same sentence.

    5 years from now-we'll be seeing flag football, with the OL's hands behind their backs.

    You heard it here first.

    No as in yes he was tackled around the ankles.

    I am sure you have seen the replay more then the half dozen times I watched it. What I saw was Wilfork throwing an elbow towards Losman an hitting him below the knee, this is a rule violation.

    That doesn't make any sense, an elbow isn't a valid way to tackle someone in the first place.

    He was pushed, but he tried to take advantage of the situation.

    Well I think he was getting his arm out to tackle/contact him before he was pushed down; how the resulting tackle/contact would have been without the push is difficult to say.

    He said he was going to appeal (back when he said he was expecting a FedEx in his locker).

    He was tackled by the ankles, but it's what he did on his way down that got him the fine.
