    Its games like this that make me wonder if the refs are bought & paid for. That was one of the most blatant helmet to helmet hits on a QB in NFL history. And they acted like they didnt see it.

    Ed Hochuli was very quiet about that. His crew either didn't see it, or if they did, they blew it. Hundley went down like a sack of potatoes.

    He may add another team that he'll not referee.

      Just thinking about this...Hundley was running, trying to just get yards as his protection blew up. Helmet-to-Helmet doesn't apply to runners, only in pass plays, the QB while attempting a throw, or receivers in a defenseless position.

        I just went back & looked again. It was a sack behind the line of scrimmage. He doesn't become a runner until he's past the line.

        I missed where they went back after the punt & replayed it again. Collinsworth acknowledged it could have been called. To me it was blatant.

          No, he's only a passer when in the pocket looking to throw. He had no intent to throw the ball. There is no rule that says a "back" can't be a runner until he passes the LOS.

            Is there a rule that says he had to have intent to throw? Do referees determine intent?

            He never made it out of the pocket anyways.

              Looked like he was looking to move forward, saw Watt flying in & just ducked to me. But whatever. We all know if that had been Bosa hitting Brady the whole field would have been carpeted in flags and the media would have burned him in effigy out in the ESPN parking lot by now.
