True, however Sproles should have called a fair catch. Instead he crouched down and got nailed in the chest with a shoulder.

True but we hit him early so it's a penalty for sure. We were definitely not head-hunting though.

no doubt at all that the guy thought he was tackling a player with the ball and had no intent at all to hit the guy high

#22 Everett is trying to SHOW coaches that he belongs on the field. But I think he will be getting a letter from the League Office for that HIT on Sproles. That was a mean hit and way too soon.....BUT NOT intentional on his part. The ball hit #22 on the back on his numbers. But I think his aggressive nature will reap him more playing time.

He wasn't hit high, Sproles lowered his body into the strike zone. He was hit early, though. The defenseless player call earlier was the same. Had the Smeagol stayed at the same level the hit would have been delivered to the chest. This gets called all the time, but I think the league should consider the actions of the player getting hit into the equation.

to clarify, the Sproles hit was not intentionally high by #22 - he thought that Darren Sproles was going to catch the ball and he tackled him - it happened that Sproles lowered his body and the contact was made - the contact was to the shoulders but it seemed to me that there was also some contact to the helmet ... others here do not agree with this ... so to further clarify - here it is :roll:

the correct call was made by the officials and it's all part of the game

Whatever. Sproles has no argument.

these hits happen all the time - I never implied that Everett was head hunting - I was just pointing out that Sproles took a hard hit to the helmet area - the only reason that Everett was penalized was for the early hit to the helmet - if the refs thought that it was done intentionally, they would have ejected him, which they did not
