smith lowered his head, once he does that all bets are off. if anything it should have been a penalty since smith was clearly out of bounds

I don't see anything wrong with it.

Just good tackling in my book. Looks like he was using more of his shoulder and the helmet just came along for the ride.

Good hit.

If the tables were reversed this forum would be covered in gifs of the hit and people trying to put our guy in the Hall of Fame.

I thought the same thing when I saw it. Good hit though. If Smith had been injured we'd probably be looking at it differently. Luckily he bounced right up and started talking poo.

Good hit, he was a runner and not defenseless. RBs take comparable ones all the time

I don't think Barron should have been penalized for it. Both players lowered thier heads and just happened to hit helmets.

It was definitely a scary collision though that could have ended badly.

It was but I didn't mind the no call. I mean Smith lowered his head too.
