It doesn't matter weather or not he was considered a "runner". That was HELMET TO HELMET CONTACT. It should be a penalty no matter what. And to think brooks was called for touching Ryan, and that Whitner hit was called.
These calls are so inconsistent, and they can determine the outcome of a game. Those penalties affected the score board! Sometimes I just want to kick those refs right in the balls.
