    They should fine his coach. Hold the coach accountable for his player not understanding safety rules. Goodell cares, right?

    Peter King>MONDAY MORNING QB

    Monday August 13, 2012



    Goat of the Week

    Philadelphia CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, for his irresponsible launching and shoulder/upper arm cheap shot of a defenseless Byron Leftwich, the Pittsburgh quarterback, in the preseason game at Philadelphia. Rodgers-Cromartie is in line for a significant fine -- maybe six figures. I think it's worthy of a suspension. That's one of the most egregious hits I've seen in the league in the last couple of years -- worse than James Harrison on Colt McCoy, because you could argue that Harrison thought McCoy was a runner when he lined him up to hit him. Rodgers-Cromartie launched himself in violation of a well-publicized rule, and then hit Leftwich in the head in violation of a well-publicized rule. Luckily, Leftwich walked away, seemingly fine. The next victim may not be so lucky.

    My buddy said he thought he read it was $21,000.00 Thanks for your response FF. I truly believed Goodell would have allowed this infraction to slip by being preseason and it was a Steeler that got the lumping. Had it been Ben, I'm sure Goodell would have done zilch about it.

    Maybe next year if Chuck Batch ever retires, we can bring in David Garrard as another backup. Then we've have the most clobbered QBs in the league that ref don't seem to care to protect.

    So the hit every media member thinks should actually get a suspension...gets a mild fine.
    Goodell is random.
