Will Poyer be fined?

Recommended Posts

I thought it was a good no-call in real speed. In slow motion I think Poyer dipped his head just a bit and I suspect he gets a slap on the wrist fine. 

Your guess?

What are you referring to? I dont remember Poyer being involved in any controversial play. Are you talking about the Hyde hit on Fowler?

Their helmets definitely clashed.  He could get a 10k fine.

I don’t think it was dirty - more unlucky - as both guys ducked in, but yes I would expect a fine a he did end up going helmet to helmet.

 

It looked like he was trying to lead with his shoulder and just got head to head.

I don’t think it was intentional helmet to helmet, and certainly not targeting, but I do suspect a fine coming his way.

it's a tough call, he did one of those side hits where you try to lead with your shoulder by you really lead with the side of your head, because that's how the human body works. It's bad form and I hate that style of tackle. Unfortunately,  Latimer braced for the tackle by leading with the side of his head too. There didn't seem to be any malice in it, just bad technique by two players at the same time.

Yeah, I think the league hits him with a fine. It was helmet to helmet and he almost seemed to launch himself a bit.

Yeah it looked to me like he lead with his shoulder as well. The problem was Fowler's shoulder dipped to and they ended up with some helmet to helmet contact. Like several said, it wasn't intentional but contact is contact. The thing that gets me, is they will never be able to take away helmet to helmet contact. There will be times where you'll get incidental contact like that. That said, he will probably be fined in the 10K range.

Helmets hit however it looked like Poyer tried to lead with his shoulder but when receiver got tripped up their helmets collided. I don't think he deserves one. But it's the NFL so they'll fine him anyways

The helmet impact was the side of both helmets.  He did lead with the shoulder, and didn't hit directly w the helmet.  I am thinking he should not get fined, but, the league is political, not fair.  NYC is a big audience, and they may well play to that fan base.

He didn't launch and he tried to lead with his shoulder.  The receiver was as much to blame as he was.  So yes, he will be fined.

It wasn't a crown hit and it looked to be incidental contact due to the collision/angle in real time.  In slow motion replay you can see earlier contact.  I dont think it can be considered leading with his head though that was the initial contact point.  With the NFL these days you never know.  Its probably a coin flip TBH.
