    The QB was at that point a runner by rule and definition. He was even breaking tackles. A position you are unlikely ever to find Brady in.

    your point?

    What you said doesn’t negate the fact it was a dirty, helmet to helmet play, that possibly costed Buffalo the game. Jones should have been fined and suspended.

    It was not a dirty play.

    It sure was. Jones launched himself at Allen with his helmet, Hitting Allen right in the mouth. That was a dirty play if there ever is one.

    "Launched"? Absolute bullshit. Did you even watch the game?

    I watch every bills game. Launched is the only way to describe what Jones did. It was a dirty play that probably lost the game for the bills. Have a nice night.

    You can argue semantics about launched or not. What was clear from the many replays I saw was the definition of "targeting" with the helmet. For the last year defenders have been trained to lead with the shoulder not the head. By the current rules it was targeting and an illegal hit. Any defender doing the same to a big name QB would have been ejected.

    Do any of you think that the modern helmet may be a reason it is used so much on hits? What if leather helmets were tried again? Would that slow the hits? Probably not a good statement. But to many injuries diminishes the game a bit. It is getting worse.

    You are full of shit. Allen dropped his head while continuing his forward momentum. If the same play involved a full back just beyond the line of scrimmage, a flag would have been thrown (given the current tenor of the league) but none of this "suspension" talk would be going on.
