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.

If I recall, Palmer was stepping forward to throw the Ball and Hardy had already made the commitment to position he was tackling. Thus, Palmer stepping up even a half step put Hardy's helmet in his Back instead of his shoulder in his ribs.

It was a bull poo call as I was sitting in the section closest to the play. It was a clean but hard hit and Hardy got flagged because Palmer got hurt. The referees were total poo during the game and made horrendous calls and no-calls all day long. The only other crew I saw be so worthless was against Dallas a few years back. Flag happy except when it came to late or unsportsman like play on Cam. Also, the most I have seen fans boo the zebras.

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.

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.
