Jonzr, Im telling ya now that Harrisons helmet hit Massaquois helmet.  You can hear it.  Might not have been intentional, but I know it hit.  

Webster says this:

Definition of CONCUSSION
1
a : a stunning, damaging, or shattering effect from a hard blow; especially : a jarring injury of the brain resulting in disturbance of cerebral function

Ive not heard of a concussion occurring from a blow to the chest.  Its a blow to the head.  Everyone knows this shit Jonz.  And both Cribbs and Massaquoi have concussions.  I hate the Browns, and fuckin love Harrison, but Im just stating the facts here.  His hat hit Massaquois.  You can fucking hear it!

I honestly don't have a problem with punishment for guys leading with the head because it risks serious injury to both the hitter and the hit-ee.

How exactly does one play tackle football and not lead with the head? The human head still sits north of the human shoulders, does it not? How does one lower the shoulder, w/o lowering the head?

What we need are immediate new rules by which defensive players have their heads surgically removed.  That will solve this mess.


There's plenty of Tea Party folks who could do that right now.

Technique.  

Proper tackling--which is rarely taught on any level--involves bending the knees, lowering the shoulders, and bowing the neck to keep the face up.  Put the face on the playside number and shoot across the body to the football, bringing the shoulder and shooting the hands to wrap up.  A player is almost 99% less likely to hurt his head/neck by bowing it rather than bringing it forward.  

Leading with the head is much less violent when it is done face first.

Now, my problem is that the NFL is so fast that you lose technique trying to make a play.  That's why I question the ability of the league to punish players for this.  But if a guy puts his head down, you punish him so that he'll think twice about breaking technique.

Good point.  Lowering the head and leading with the head are two different animals.  They want shoulder tackles (which kinda makes no sense when they tell you to "square up" for a hit)  Offset shoulder tackles.  OR head up tackles.  Football 101 Oat.  Stick your ass out.  facemask into the chest of the opponent.  Pop your lower body.  Textbook.  Where the fuck is Sage at on this?  Hes the damned coach isnt he?!?!

Yeah, technique is a great thing. You've got ball carriers falling down, trying to get one more yard and defensive players heading south, trying to stop them. You think head position is really on their mind. Fuck no.

Ok, nobody put their head down when they tackle. This will be great.

I watched the clip with the sound down here at work.  It didn't look like helmet2helmet but I'll take your word for it.  You could see it on Cribs hit, not so much with M-whateverthefuck.
