Why would I be commenting about the hit if I hadn't seen it? I watched the game. I watch ALL of the Steelers and Colts games.
As far as the money goes, none of the players in the NFL signed anything on the dotted line saying they agreed to be permanently crippled for x millions. Nobody WANTS to get hurt. And just remember, baseball and basketball players get paid much more than football players, and don't suffer near the number, or seriousness, of injuries that football players do.

You're wrong. If it was a legal hit, then Coleman would not have been penalized for unnecessary roughness for hitting a defenseless receiver. The NFL concluded it was not INTENTIONAL, therefore no fine was levied.
So thats it your just a sore loser. If there all worried about concussions then why don't they all where special helmets like Jackson.

Great point! If the NFL wants to be proactive without hurting the game, force all players to use that anti-concussion helmet with the special soft lining on the inside frame, but let them play, and keep the Refs (and the league office) out of the games as much as possible.

TMD makes excellent points in all his comments. My question is, "Why are defenders no longer using proper tackling technique (i.e. wrapping arms around the ball carrier)?" Neither Mikell nor Coleman made any attempt to wrap up Collie, yet both had the opportunity to do so. Backtrack a few weeks ago to when Jackson was hit. What were the comments of all you Iggles fans when that occurred. Doubt that you were defending the tackler on that play.

Wrapping up does not knock the ball loose. You wrap up and tackle when the ball carrier has you in a position where you must extend your arms out just to reach him or feel you can't effect his momentum or the ball.
You deliver a 'hit' when the ball has not been secured or are in position to cause a fumble. When you have a chance to seperate man from ball, you are expected to try do it and always have been in the history of the NFL.
It's not about hurting players, it's about making positve plays for your team. The Steelers won on Monday night for example, because the 'hit' applied to the WR's arms and ball, jolted the ball loose, ending the game. If the defender had merely come in and wrapped up, the reciever would have kept possession of the ball and the Steelers would have lost.
Sometimes you have to make the tackle, sometimes you have to make the hit. That has always been football and how it's played.

How many boxers have died from blows to the head? Last I checked boxing still wasn't outlawed! What's sad is seeing Ali now if you remember him as fresh fast talking Cassius Clay. He can barely string two words together and in his youth he was reknown for his off the cuff poetry.
Damn Momma, if you don't know the answer to that, no use trying to explain anything else to you. Football is NOT outlawed either.
REKNOWN, what the hell is THAT? Reknown does not exist in English. Give it up and go back to your diaper changing!

Why don't you go spit your bile at someone who gives a hoot. Apparantly you lack reading comprehension so allow me to enlighten you. My entire point outlined that people have been killed and maimed "for the love of the game", but that doesn't stop anyone from playing nor neanderthals like you from watching.
Your other rant was simply a mistake on my part. Hardly worth a guillotine conviction. You do nothing here except verbally attack others. Take your redneck bully self back to the schoolyard. No one thinks you're cute as a quip!

Actually, I would tend to agree with the gentleman. These people are making teh choice to participate ins these sports and are not being forced like the Gladiators in Rome! People get hurt playing badminton and Tennis also and the sports still go on! LOL
