Thread: Wes Welker nearly killed

    If it means anything, the penalty was for "unnecessary roughness"...not a late hit or helmet to helmet hit.

    Referee translation: the timing of the hits was legal, the type of hit (shoulder) was legal, but the hit was a bit too hard.

    Actually, unnecessary roughness is a generic penalty that covers those things you mention.

    It was a clean hit, but....

    Watch the slo-mo from.33 to .39. Polamalu tips the ball. Welker breaks stride for two steps as the ball falls behind him, then wham Clark pops him. No question, Clark didn't have to launch with that kinda impact.

    Valid flag for an unnecessary hit. Clark will get fined for a late hit.
    Life's not the breaths you take, the breathing in and out that gets you through the day ain't what it's all about. It's the moments that take your breath away.

    I agree... a fine is a sure thing.

    Probably the best 100% legal hit ever...
