Eric Weddle fined $7,500 for hit on Kevin Boss

San Diego Chargers safety Eric Weddle was fined $7,500 for a helmet-to-helmet hit on New York Giants tight end Kevin Boss in the Chargers’ 21-20 win on Sunday.

Weddle drilled Boss on a play when, the league office ruled, Boss was a defenseless receiver. The fine was handed down even though Weddle’s hit did not draw a flag, and Boss stayed in the game.

It was the second time this season that a defensive back has been fined for a helmet-to-helmet hit on Boss; Arizona Cardinals safety Antrel Rolle was fined $7,500 for a helmet-to-helmet hit on Boss two weeks ago.

As we noted in today’s one-liners, three Giants were also fined: running back Ahmad Bradshaw for a chop block, cornerback Kevin Dockery for a hit on Chargers punt returner Darren Sproles and linebacker Clint Sintim for roughing the passer on Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers.

    What a load of crap. How about we just put pink flags on these guys so no one gets hit. Football is a game of violent collisions and fining Weddle or any DB for hitting a receiver is beyond stupid. It would be like giving a jail sentence to a butcher for not trimming off enough fat. God, what have we become?

    I thought PFT only wrote about players that made an impact? Weddle? Child, please…

    look at :23 and then look at James Harrison’s hit directly afterward. THATS a helmet to helmet hit. The NFL has no idea what it’s doing.
