Miller has been fined $21,000 for a low hit on quarterback Cam Newton, according to Mike Klis of the Denver Post.

Defensive tackle Kevin Vickerson also was fined $15,000 for applying a horse collar tackle to Newton.

The 2011 defensive rookie of the year doesn’t believe he broke the rules when making contact with with 2011 offensive rookie of the year below the knee.  “How am I supposed to know if he threw the ball or not?” Miller said.  “I was down on the ground — actually the guard facemasked me and threw me into the quarterback.  I’m supposed to what?  Stand straight up and continue with the tackle?”

The play, available on the NFL.com Game Rewind service, shows that Miller wasn’t thrown or blocked into Newton’s lower leg.  Instead, Miller was knocked low and stayed low as he pursued Newton and hit him below the knee.

Also, the question of whether Newton had thrown the ball is irrelevant.  A quarterback in the pocket can’t be hit above the shoulders or at or below the knees, regardless of whether he has the ball in his hands or not.


I see all this poo while watching the game and even yelled at the tv "That's a horse collar, a fuging HORSE COLLAR!" with a ref one foot within Newton, such a shitty crew.

I called the horsecollar too, yelled at the screen and everyone at the room. If I recall that was on a 3rd down too and could have been a momentum tur... who am i kidding, we would have lost anyway.

Miller may be a very good LB, but he sure sounded ignorant as hell with those comments

I thought the horse collar was called but not the tackle below the knee.

Also we got raped on the two long gains, the screen to stewart they called holding on Gross, and the OPI they called on Murphy was Bailey was grabbing and making contact past 5 yards.

I always feel like we get the shitty end of the stick when it comes to calls.

If this were any other team's QB we'd be saying No Fun League! Got to love the Huddle.

Fines happen every week, irrelevant.

Von Miller was still pretty classless out there, what goes around comes around.

so you have to win to not get screwed over by the refs weekly.

does anyone not see a problem with this?

at least the replacement refs had an excuse.

the owners new what they were doing. the refs are crap. they didn't deserve the crap they were asking for. the owners were right to not give in.
