Dirtiest tackle I've seen all year. Going after the knees of a player who is engaged is despicable. That player doesn't belong in the league.
Is that what happened? I don't recall seeing it like that. Isn't it a penalty to engage a guy low when someone has him up high?
Yes that is what happened but its a byproduct of the league wanting to protect players from concussions.
DB had Rio by the ankles. Had Hill gone anything higher then a perfect shot to the gut he would've been flagged and fined. The NFL is forcing players to go low.
James Harrison did it very early this year or last year and tore/sprained someones knee ligaments after he got ripped a new 1 for his hit on Colt McCoy. He even admitted this very week that he has changed his target area to the knees.
You'll see -- Culliver is going to get fined for his hit and Hill wont be.
