He says suspension and fine won't stop from playing physical. He played the same way his whole life. Brown promised to pay his fine but so far isn't coming through. He should give a transfusion to Artie S'more.

Bottom line Juju layed out Burfict on a Legal block and Steelers Nation appreciates it.

C'mon, that block wasn't legal - blindside hit with all kinds of helmet-to-helmet contact.

Doesn't make me (nor most guys in the NFL, I imagine) appreciate it any less.

I've watched it like 20 times. There's no question his helmet hit Burfict right on the chin. I don't know where the idea this was a clean hit came from. Doesn't matter if he led with the shoulder, there was h2h contact.

I don't think it was dirty, but it sure as hell wasn't legal.

Borderline at the most. In real time shoulder to chest. In ultra HD slow motion he made incidental contact with HTH. If burfict's demented head was hurt it was when his head hit the turf.

It was 5 feet from the play and he hit his straight on. I loved it.

Nothing at all illegal. That’s the way downfield blocking is taught today. Lead with the shoulder to the chest...helmet to helmet is inevitable, but he didn’t lead with the crown, and it certainly was not blindside. Burfict was closing in to make a tackle, and JuJu was in front of him. Blew his ass up. A perfectly good, hard nosed football play at every level except the fucked up NFL...

Sure, but outside the shoulder and upfield, making it a blindside block. H2H is a penalty every time. It's the Hines Ward rule - you CANNOT have H2H, incidental or otherwise.

It's an illegal block. Quit crying about it.

Exactly. You can question whether the rules should be changed, but by definition the hit was 100% illegal.
