Raiders Admit They Were Targeting Cam

60 posts in this topic

Not really. He just hit him really hard. Looked like a hard hit on the QB, but nothing that could be considered malicious.

Wonder why he was flagged then...Oh that's right refs where terrible....

After that call/play, I knew it was gonna down hill from there....my first thought was, I hope Cam survives the rest of the game....thats the FKN Raiders....they're gonna try to get em.

i guess when your offense can only put up six points all you can do is try to play dirty on defense

Hardy was only flagged because he knocked the Sh!t out of Palmer. Hardy hits Palmer with the same tech, but not as hard, it wouldn't have been flagged!

Watching the second half on DVR now. Fug the Raiders, hitting Cam below the knees...

Yet there are so called fans here calling Newton a "bitch" for defending himself? Sigh.

Broncos Woodyard had the same hit on McCoy today and no flag was thrown.

It's pretty natural reaction after their guy got taken out. And regardless whether or not some of you saw it as clean, I guarantee you Hardy will set a Panther record for the highest fine ever given by the league- I'm guessing between $30-50k.

Mind you, I'm not taking sides one way or the other. The way the game was called today I'm totally confused about what the rules are anymore.

And one other thing, the Kuechly penalty for the same thing on a receiver was the worst of the bunch.

Well, it ended almost ending Cam's season. Understandably you don't wanna throw a flag on every play, instead they got it all wrong at the beginning....got hesitant with throwing flags late when the Raiders were going for the juggler. That first call got it all wrong, thus the downward spiral from there...it was a mess

I understand, but also remember it likely did end Carson Palmer's season.

If you watch the replay, Hardy had his right arm and shoulder into the back of Palmer with his head going left. About the same time Charles Johnson grabs Palmer and turns him just enough that Hardy's head is then partially into CP's back. Had Johnson not gotten hold of Palmer, it would have been a completely legit hit. It was just a bad set of circumstances.

Oh, I totally agree about Palmer, but it set the tone for the rest of the game...a cadre of subjective illegal hit calls to balance the call ratio...however, it allowed the Raiders to unfairly tag Cam...still, he's gotta have more poise but he's an intense dude and learning.
