    Should there be any punishment for these hits?

    Not for that one, the meriweather one on heap was egregious and he should sit a few games. It had no bearing on the game or the play and was simply designed to injure Heap. That is more/less the play in question, not Harrisons hits.

    Looks like it went $75,000 - $50,000 - $50,000 on the weekends big three... I bet we see some week suspensions after this weeks warning

    I realize that this has very little to due with this topic, but I can't help myself.

    After watching Eric Legrand, Rutgers, snap his neck when his helmet hit the shoulder of the Army kick returner, I an opposed to any head first hits. LeGrand's hit was totally clean head to shoulder /shoulder to chest. To watch guys intentionally use their helmet as a weapon is entirely uncalled for. The game is at a totally different level than it was 20 years ago,
    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.

    Nah, nothing wrong with Harrison's hits. And I don't expect to hear him complain when I chop-block his knees.

    I'd like to see helmet-to-helmet hits banned. I know that they are a part of the game right now and that a lot of coaches probably like to see them, but they just aren't necessary. And the advantage of getting in someone's head in a football game isn't worth seriously injuring him.

    Agreed, however I think people making a fuss over hits such as the Robinson-Jackson hits are ridiculous. My way of thinking is that if it isn't helmet to helmet and is not an intentional malicious hit than there should be no fine. With that being said the hit on Heap from meriweather is one of the dirtiest I have seen in a while
