It was clearly in incomplete pass.. Burfict comes in lowers his head to make that hit well after the ball goes through Brown's hands. Disgusting play IMHO. Had all the time in the world not hit AB or simply run into him without lowering his head anywhere near ABs head to make the hit.

The Burfict play happened fast.  Looked to me like he was aiming his shoulder at Brown's chest,  from his angle wasn't sure if Brown had the ball or not.   Last second,  Brown bent over.and lowered his head.  Looked more like an accidental hit to Brown's helmet.    Which,   as I said,  should definitely be flagged all the same..I just don't think it was head hunting. 

 

I mean,  that announcer was trying to imply that Burfict's sack on Big Ben was dirty also and head hunting.   When it was a legal football sack. 

 

Gio gets knocked out by a Steeler launching himself in a helmet to helmet.............  all we heard was "Yeah,  yeah, that is just a good legal hit,    Gio made a football move". 

I agree with you about the announcers, Nantz and Simms are idiots who act personally offended about certain penalties on certain players and not on others. Gio getting knocked out was an abomination. Shazier should be done for a game minimum. If the NFL wants to stop be a laughingstock, they need mandatory 1 game minimum suspensions for head hunting. 

 

Burficts sack was a clean, hard hit, somewhat reminiscent of TD58 re-injuring Romo's collarbone on that sack. I really don't think Burfict accidentally hit his helmet. He immediately patted his shoulder when gesturing to the ref, arguing that it wasn't a penalty as he didn't go helmet-to-helmet. But with Burficts reputation, and the way that game was going, he is a freaking idiot to hit a guy that late. And it doesn't hurt that the NFL goes to great lengths to protect star WR's. Antonio Brown sold that hit very well, and he is arguably the biggest WR in the game, bigger than OBJ, who was allowed to head hunt Norman with almost no repercussion.

I don't believe Brown sold the hit.  I think he was knocked the fug out. That hit was brutal, even if it was unintentional.

Lol Marvin Lewis said reason they did not kneel down and make Steelers call timeouts said he did not believe they were in Field goal range on the 20 something yardline.

Wow...if true, then Lewis is an idiot too.

I'm all for hating the Steelers, guys, but that hit over the middle was a carbon copy of OBJ on Norman.

Shaziers hit was bad but it didn't cost the Bengals the game. All they had to do was run out the clock and not lose their minds, and they failed at both. This loss is all on them.

No it wasn't. Josh stood around, watching his guys tackle, and OBJ helmet-to-helmeted him. A. Brown was a moving target falling down, and Burfict clipped him on the head. Whether intentional or not is the debate, but at full speed, I think it was more chance than intention.

The dude dropped his head you dumb fug.  Your allowed to tackle a guy.  The NFL just wanted to let the Steelers win.  Helmet to helmet = no call,  tackling with shoulder = penalty.  That not right. 

Uhm... there was nearly a full second between the ball tipping off Brown's hands, and Burfict hitting him. Meanwhile, Burfict was staring him down the whole time. You will never convince me that Burfict didn't mean to hit Brown the way he did. Burfict could have at least tried to avoid Brown. He did nothing of the sort. 

But no worries. Don't let me stop your fantasy world conspiracy theories about the NFL rigging games.

The hit was dirty. It was flagged and the team that deserved to win ended up winning.

Games like this make you realize it's a joke that the #1 seed from the NFC is going to have to play two of Seahawks, Cardinals, Packers, Redskins and Vikings just to make the Super Bowl, but thems the breaks.

Helmet to helmet on a runner is NOT a penalty unless it is flagrant targeting.  At least know the rule you dumb fug.

What about targeting? Shazier clearly led with the crown.

Yes. Give Vontaze Burfict the benefit of the doubt on a clear headhunt. Lol.

I never really heard the explanation on the last penalty against Cincy.  I heard the announcers say something about Jones bumping a ref, but if they replayed it, I missed it. 

 

That was a very important penalty that no one is really talking about.
