    Be honest.
    You do know that there was a flag on Cam for that, right?

    Actually I believe he was flagged for the shoving of the wr trying to pull him off Herbert.
    Update:
    In the last decade, 25% of the league has won a super bowl(the Steelers aren't one of them) and now 50% have as many or more playoff wins as the Steelers.

    If a Steelers player did this, you’d cry and say he was trying t make the tackle/force a fumble and was inadvertent.

    So bad officiating is ok if it helps us but should be looked into if it doesn’t?

    But I think RBs generally don't get much protection from head shots because there's so much helmet to helmet contact for runners as they try to get low.

    But this is an elbow / forearm shiver to the head of a defenseless player. Not helmet to helmet in the hole.

    Which should have been a penalty on the WR for unsportsmanlike conduct.

    I'm not unbiased (as you're pointing out). But it looks like he's extending his forearm / elbow to make contact with Harris' head.

    Maybe it's unfair because it's in slo-motion. But remember that the answer to James Harrison was that "It's always the defender's fault. It doesn't matter if it's unavoidable." But that was for QBs...who get way more protection than RBs (who get very little protection from head shots).
