For that hit of the 11-year old to cause a spinal fracture, that tells me somethings not right with these helmets. They're constantly trying to advance, improve the helmet, and I think they have a long way to go.

His hitting style reminds me of Ronnie Lott and John Lynch. He is a safety from a truly bygone era.

That poor kid probably had an issue with his spine prior to the hit. Those things happen. Truly sad, but it's football.

Have to remember 11 year Olds are still developing, you don't hear many death or broken spines in the NFL, a case or two in ncaa.

Helmets were made to stop skull fracture. Not concussion, it's almost impossible to stop your brain from jarring around inside your skull, and get a bruise. Stop playing, if you don't want a concussion. Nfl is scum for hiding it from players like tobacco companies. But if you don't want lung cancer don't smoke, and wear a mask around at all times.

Goldson is and always has been a clean hitter, he is just a very big hitter so sometimes it looks dirty I guess.

What bugs me is 5 years ago all the hits he has made this season would have been " Great, Clean " hits. And Goldson would have been highlighted as a player that would knock you out.

But now a days... even if it's a clean huge hit that this guy lays. The flags are going to fly.

I wouldn't say Goldson is dirty, I'd just say he's not a very smart player. Whether or not his hits are clean or dirty, he doesn't need to go for the big hit every single time. He tends to put himself in the position to be called for personal fouls by going for big hits when it's completely unnecessary to the situation.

Needless to say, I'm much happier with Eric Reid over Goldson so far.

Speaking of helmet to helmet hits, check this one out by an 11-year old league here in Texas. http://www.wfaa.com/news/texas-news/...elmet-hit.html

After replaying the video time and time, and pausing it at contact, I don't think it was dirty. He barely lowered his head. Sure, his eyes were down, so he led with the crown instead of head/eyes up, but it wasn't that bad.

But the result was, fractured spine. Why not put some padding on the outside of the helmet, soften the initial blows?
yes it's gotten soft as compared to years before why would i need to get on a field to see the difference?

Those types of hits I don't mind being punished even if former great safeties like John Lynch made a career out of of those kind of hits. I can understand that portion of flags, fines and suspensions.

I don't think it's thread worthy, especially with a topic so closely related, but Meriweather has been suspended for two games on hits to Alshon Jeffery and Brandon Marshall. He is getting out of control. He nearly decapitated Lacey, and then in the same game knocked himself out going for a helmet-to-helmet hit. And this past week he has dished out brutal hits to Jeffery and Marshall.

Meriweather is a complete scumbag and, unfortunately, because he's a terrible player the league doesn't care and neither do fans. They'd rather fine Suh for clean hits during PR stunts - why fine Meriweather? No one is going to care. I would have a zero tolerance policy with Meriweather. If he does anything like this again - this season - he should be suspended for the year. His career is basically over anyway.

This has been a long time coming. And I only think its getting the attention it has gotten is because it happened to a star player in Brandon Marshall who created headlines by saying Meriweather should be kicked out of the league.

Meriweather dirty? I mean it's not like he's the type of guy who would repeatedly stomp another player while he lays on the ground.





Oh wait.
