That was a total cheap shot from a secondary team still tring to up left there past. That play could have been avoided if the other player actually cared about the other team mates lively hood. Not to meantion famliy. CHEAP SHOT ALL AROUND. " SELFESH"

I agree with the comment from the person from California,. It was a blatent shot on green and It should be reviewed by the NFL. If it were anyone on the KC Chiefs team it would emmediately be called a penilty. Wake up NFL!

I agree it was a cheap shot!!! When a quarterback is sliding, you don,t dive for his head. I think the league should put a heft fine on that player but Green is tuff, he will bounce back and Herm Edwards style will get Green Killed

I don't believe it was a cheap shot, a KC player hit Geathers in the back propelling him towards Green. You can see Geathers trying to lower his shoulder so it doesn't make direct contact with Green's helmet. I'm a Bears fan so I'm nuetral on this but that is how I saw it.

I also agree with Joel, and I'm a fan of neither team. At first I thought it was kind of cheap, but then they really slowed it down and blew it up some. It wasn't until then that I saw Eddie Kennison block Geathers directly into Green. I think Kennison thought Green was going to keep running to the right because otherwise he wouldn't have done that to his own man.

Ok let's suppose it was a legal hit from Gathers. Question, how does a player go forward head first without being hit in the back! At the very least it should have been a penality on Kennision for an illegal push in the back? Either way, this hit shoukd have been avouded if Carl would have had the guts to get us a front line!!!

Hello, My name is Fred Moore
I am a Chiefs fan. My question is why in world was there not a flag thrown on the hit of Trent Green. Had that been Bret Favre, Drew Bledsoe, or even Carlson Palmer there would have been a flag thrown for sure. Well Trent Green is as important as any of the afore metioned QB's. I thought the slide was put in place to protect the quaterbacks. I beleive when umpires, referee's and other officials of the game miss those type of calls there should be a policy in place, such as review etc. And what of the KC Chiefs players I thought they would be fired up after the QB was hit late yet it seemed that not one of them had any fire.

I sure thought it was a cheap shot. And Fred is right, you cant touch the QB in that situation. Its not like someone being blocked into a kicker - when the QB is sliding its hands off. I think the NFL should make an example out of Geathers. Fine him and suspend him!

The KC fans are blind and do not see what really happened. He was pushed into Green it is very clear. No flag, because there was no wrongdoing. Just like there was no wrong doing on the player who tour Palmers knee last year in the playoffs against Pittsburgh (Go Ben). And by the way Fred there was no flag on that play either. OPEN YOUR EYES!!!!!!!!!!
Best of Luck to the Chiefs and to Trent Green<

Now Now Now Children lets not argue over the facts: here they are...Fact #1: It is against the rules to TOUCH a sliding quarterback. Fact #2: Trent Green was sliding. Fact #3: Geathers TOUCHED Green (to put it mildly) Fact #4: The Refs failed to do their job. Fact#5: Both Geathers and the Refs should be thrown out of the NFL.

The quarterback was out of the pocket running with the ball. In the old NFL when men were men he was fair game. No one wants to see anyone get hurt. Maybe the QB should be down with two hand touch.

Thats great but you are forgetting one little thing: This is not the "old" NFL. We are specifically discussing whether or not what happened on Sunday violated the "new" NFL's rules and it clearly did. End of discussion.

Pushed or not you do not lower your head and shoulders into a sliding QB. Any of you every play football? If that would have been Brett Farve, Geathers would have been ejected. GO STEELERS

If the NFL review comes up "cheap shot", forget the fine..the player should be out of football for as long as his victim is out. If Trent is out for the season, the hitter is out for the season. Fair?

Three things: Bigger helmets with more padding for everybody, even if they look funny. God bless Trent Green, a wonderful QB who deserves the best of a recovery. Gut feeling: Your backup QB is Brody Croyle, a kid with fire who could spark the offense. Not Huard, who looked like he didn't know what planet he was on.(Have we forgotten the choice of Elvis Grbac over Rich Gannon? Hmmm?)

There were refs right there and you can not penalize a player for getting blocked into the QB even if it puts him out. The replay clearly showed him get deflected towards Green. He did a good job not planting his helmet or pads right in Greens face and doing worse than knock him out. It is unfortunate but big guys moving that fast are lethal. Just look at what happened to Palmer. (No flag there ether) I am sure the review will find that the refs made the right call.

This is just like the Palmer hit. I'm guessing Geathers is about 265lbs? Trent is about 220lbs? Both of them are going full tilt to the sideline...

Bad timing... Trent should of went out of bounds.
