He was suspended for 1 week and fined $50,000

My point, seriously, though that was a pretty tough hit, these personal foul penalties are getting out of hand. Hines Ward is right, this is football, but at the same time tough hit by a pretty tough SS.

Yeah I agree. If you take a look at that hit a little slower there wasnt much of helmet to helmet. I did not think it was a cheap shot at all. It was a good very good play on D.
i think i read somewhere he was fined $50,000

$5,000 only?

And if you quantitated that to a blue collar worker's wages? $5 bucks.

He probably pulled out his checkbook and gladly wrote them a check.

I seriously cannot see why there is such an uproar over this by some people. Shoot that hit was weak by comparison to some of the hits that Hardy Brown and Ronnie Lott have put on guys.

Hardy most especially that guy would LEVEL guys with nothing more than his shoulder. He's one of the reason that helmets are much stronger today.

If you don't believe me just watch ESPNs' top 10 hitters of the NFL. Ronnie is ranked to 5 and 2 back from him Hardy Brown.

It's guys like this that made me a FAN of the NFL to begin with. Only panty waists complain about these things.

It wasn't like AW was out to end Duke's career. Gripe about it when the player is deliberately attempting to separate a players head from his shoulders.

Show of hands, how many people were CELEBRATING that shot that leveled the Jets WR last year?

I'll be the first to stand up and proudly admit that I was excited as hell to see that hit. I laughed my @$$ off when the guy popped up took a couple of steps and then BAM brain caught up with body and went right back down.

So if stuff like that happens to our guys well then you have to ax yosef "could the ball have been placed in a better spot"? If your answer is yes, then there is nothing to gripe about. In this case hell yeah, it could and SHOULD have. It's one thing when they BOTH go up in the air to get it, but when you already have separation you DON'T want to hang your Receiver out to dry. That's how guys get injured.

Blame Hill, don't blame the Defender for doing his freakin yob.

look closely, he looks like s soccer player "heading" the ball. No way you can say he didn't lead with his head. If VD's head had been a soccer ball it would have ended up in the net.

this received a penalty as it should have but I don't think it was malicious in any way.. he received like a $50k fine but will not be suspended, nor should he be.. adrian wilson is a beast at safety and any niner fan would be happy to have such a force in the secondary

at least this call was warranted tho.. anyone catch the pats game on MNF? the wilfork and adalius thomas sacks were both flagged and I just thought it was ridiculous.... is the QB not playing football? can he not be hit? wilfork was literally in the air when edward threw the ball.. do they want him to stop mid-air? i don't get it

the thomas sack was all bad, he slammed him to the ground AFTER the whistle for play stoppage. the wilfork one wasnt dirty at all.

So you're telling us that you could change your position of attack in midair?

This is the NFL not the Matrix.

Essentially you're saying that the outcomes of THESE two shots by our own Bam Bam...



...were COMPELETELY avoidable in a contact sport where EVERYONE is wearing pads.

Get real.

If you look at these two shots Bam Bam did pretty much the same thing in BOTH instances. The only difference that I see between what he's done and what AW did was that Bam Bam is a 49er.

ONCE YET AGAIN, you gotta blame Hill for layin Duke out not AW for doing his yob. If people don't like it I suggest they just stop watching the games and become box score fans. Cuz if you can handle us dishing it out and then complain about opposing players playing straight up, you'll( generally speaking) never be happy with the overall product on the field.

He also jumped up towards Davis's head. Cheap shot by a mile. That hit was intentional and probably meant as an attempt to take him out of the game.

And if a Niner player did that you all would be cheering. Adrian hit Vernon with his helmet...so what? It happens in football.

The real cheap shot on Vernon Davis came from Troy Polamalu last season (or maybe the season before). Took his knees out after a deep pass.

I thought Adrian Wilson's hit was legit though, he lead with his shoulder and looked like he was at least trying to hit Davis in the chest.

what i see by willis is a shoulder going to a chest, wilson didnt need to jump to hit him. he could have easily gone for his midsection without jumping.
