Why was the Palmer Hit a Penalty?

he "led with the helmet" apparently

any time a quarterback gets jacked up now they toss the flag first and ask questions later

I was thirty yards from it, watched it happen, savored it on replay, and was outraged when the flag came. That was the cleanest, nastiest QB hit I have seen in a long time - and I watch a LOT of football! But it was like that all day long. If they want them to play two-hand touch or flag, they should just go ahead and put the QBs in red "don't hit me" jerseys like in practice and be done with it. I can see penalizing a flagrant hit, and I'm all for player safety. But yesterday looked a lot like the pussification of the game to me.

I kinda miss the replacement refs. Yea they were terrible but they did let the players play. They protect immobile QBs way too much.

He actually hit him with his shoulder.

As this pic from another thread shows, Hardy's head was not lowered. His facemask was in Palmer's back/side, and he didn't launch. He drove through him. Pretty much text book tackle all around, but because a QB got hurt, it was an automatic flag. If Hardy gets fined, I'd be outraged.

This picture shows everything you need to know about the play. Head up, feet driving. Clean hit.

it was Palmer fault.he knew the flow was coming he should have got rid of the ball or went out of bounds.he put a move on CJ to keep the play alive, and than threw the ball like he was in the pocket.you asking to get your ass blown off, and thats what happened.

As I stated in another thread. It was only a flag because he knocked the dogshit out of him.

palmer was an idiot for staying motionless for that long against the league's top sack tandem.

Because the refs have been instructed to throw the flag on any big hit, regardless if it was legal or not. Last night that hit Kam Chancellor put on Vernon Davis was picture perfect and got flagged because Davis' head snapped back.

That was some of the worst refereeing I've seen in a while. Hardy's hit was only part of a long list of retarded calls yesterday.

Pray to jebus that official crew never oversees a game that means something.
