  1. @dualprime…..Charles’s hit was legal under the rules. Crick’s was not. The NFL provides more protection for quarterbacks than they do for other players. Right or wrong, good or bad, the rules are the rules. The penalty was OK under the rules. The fine however was NOT appropriate. Excessive IMO.

    I here you! I was being sarcastic about the hypocrisy, one guy’s knees being more important than another’s. Charles did nothing wrong.
