I love it
Gold medals aren't really made of gold. They're made of sweat, determination, and a hard-to-find alloy called guts.
You love helmet to helmet hits?
Looked like the chest to me but when I played football helmet to helmet didn't bother me a bit. For one is was a monster hit for 2 it was on a Cowboy so win win
Hell of a hit
mkillian247 on twitter..... I say a lot of stuff you wont care about.
Look at the video. He went head hunting. Crown of helmet, straight into lee's chin. It was beyond illegal. Wouldn't be surprised if he gets hit with a fine this week from the commish. Then to boast about it the way he did. I guess I wouldn't expect much else from a former Golden Domer.
Cheap shot. Use your shoulder pad and it would have been fine. He hit him with the crown of his helmet. He is lucky he didn't hurt himself on that block.
I wonder if some of you ever actually played organized football. You simply don't stop and think ...ok let me deliver an illegal hit. You react in a flash - not in slow motion. You can't predict how you'll make contact all the time ore even most of the time. You are moving, the other guy is moving. and It happens quickly and spontaneously. To call it dirty or cheap is well....uninformed at best.

Exactly nc I have seen blatant cheap shots n I doubt that was one. A 190 pound receiver isn't going to intentionally helmet a 250 pound lb n risk hurting himself....well not an intelligent one at least
I think it's a great hit, but if he was a defender it would have been a flag, part of what makes football stupid
He suckered him with a helmet shot...you can see him actually lining it up and aiming for Lee's chin strop with the crown of his helmet....to say otherwise is completely ignorant and obviously just enjoying that it happened to a Cowboy ...it was A CHEAP SHOT....and the little punk will be fined, guaranteed.
Ahhh look at all the butt hurt Cowboy fans downvoting me for an opinion get a life. And Herk if you think I am ignorant you can shove it. But I will say one thing I watched it again on tv this time and it does look like he was aiming for the chin strap so I will admit I was wrong.
Brad I'm not butthurt and didn't downvote you. But you have to admit with NFL cracking down on helmet to helmet hits and player safety, if the Real NFL refs were there that hit would have been flagged. I honestly don't know how you can argue against that.
I said I was wrong I watched it on here the first time on small screen and it looked like a chest shot and I am a fan of big hits so I liked it.After watching it on tv he was aiming for the strap and yes if the regular refs were there it would have been flagged. I was only joking with you when I said i loved it because it was a Cowboy I would never want to see someone get hurt badly off a head shot
I played organized football for 6 years. It was a cheap shot. The showed it several times on TV and you can tell he is lining it up. He didn't have to go for his head. He could have put him on his ass by hitting him in the chest like any respectable player. Instead he went straight for his head. He had time to line it up if you were watching the play. The hell you can't predict how you are going to make contact. especially in that case. Quit acting all intelligent and making those of us who disagree with you out to be morons.
Looks clean to me.
I still think it was a good hit and a clean hit. I think the only real people I have seen upset about it have been Cowboys fans. Watching it in real time, it doesn't look like he had to time to size him up like some are saying. The play is happening a lot faster than it looks. Like I said, my biggest problem with it is that if a defender made a similar hit, he would have been flagged.
He measured him up like a tailor.
