Wow...more than an 85% reduction in the fine. Is $28k a cookie cutter fine amount for blind side blocks or did some schmuck in the NFL corporate office review the play and determine it deserved such an asinine fine? That's what I'm curious to know.

Never should have been a penalty let alone a fine.  Total BS.

No it was definitely a penalty.... and unnecessary block.

They were facing each other when contact was made, not a blind side anything. It was an unnecessary call.

So.....are we still in the playoffs? Is there a do-over??? 

 

Glad he got screwed out of less cash, but that call was BS and had huge consequences.

The call that really cost us the game was the officials inventing a new rule about procedures during kickoffs.  On the KO for the second half, the Houston receiver fumbled the ball, and the Bills scored, and the ref correctly called it a touchdown.  That would have made it 20-0.  Instead they did what kids do in the back yard, making up rules as they go.

 

The Ford block was a terrible call.  It was not blind side at all.  Ford was at about 10 o'clock to the guy, in front and to the side.  There's nothing blind about that.  And Ford didn't go attack the guy, the guy basically ran into Ford.  

 

The other terrible call was on the Allen run in OT where Knox missed a block, and the Houston defender speared Allen in the helmet.  No call at all.  The correct call would have put the Bills in middle range FG range, possibly ending the game right there.

 

So the Bills get a BS penalty against them, and a BS non-call against them, and a BS rule change in the middle of a playoff game.

No as usual you don’t know what you are talking about. Rules experts have stated it didn’t meet the criteria. Now go back to your hating...

It's clearly a penalty by the current rules.

 

 

Look at the example starting at :53 of the video. It's nearly identical to the foul called on Ford.

 

I think it's a bad rule because the QB, unlike other players, is likely to stop before he gets to the LOS so that he can throw the ball, so allowing the OL to protect his blindside is important for safety and the defender can see the blocker coming, but it's a foul none-the-less right now.

Maybe you should read the rule yourself.

 

It was a ticky tack call, but the rule states a blindside block is a penalty if a player initiates a block in which he is moving towards or  parallel to his own end line and makes forcible contact to his opponent with his helmet, shoulder or forearm..... which is exactly what Ford does with his forearm thus a penalty. 
 

I have watched the play numerous times..... it was an unnecessary block by a Ford as well. Just a dumb overall play by him in an absolutely crucial down and aspect of the game. But yes, go back to blaming the refs and being ignorant to the rules.👍🏻
 

I’m guessing you donated as well.😂

By rule wasn't it due to him moving back towards our backfield rather than downfield?

Cody Ford made a textbook FRONT TO FRONT block protecting Josh from pursuing shorthorn in Houston.....to flag Cody was the illegal referee way of accepting bribes to favor a Texan win ....Cody NEVER touched a spine or buttocks when his hands block to the front shoulder pads stood up the onrusher....Cody should win the BEST BLOCK OF THE 2019 SEASON AWARD and Roger Goodell should terminate the referee from all NFL games and fire the idiot who fined Cody go BILLs

Every time I see obvious bad calls at critical times my mind goes to gambling and payoffs or drug debts etc. 

Reducing the fine, mea culpa, only makes the concern worse. I hope the NFL is on top of it.

It was a bad call Scott, but you have every right to you’re opinion.  It’s over so not worth worrying about it.  The regular joes out there that donated to an already wealthy young man is silly.  I make a good living, and would never donate to this charity?  If you want to donate you’re $, give it to a children’s cancer fund, shiners, you’re church, disabled kids, whatever.  They are the ones that need it.  
 

I was shocked fans donated, and even if he was fined, it goes to charity, so not sure, but he might even be able to write it off.  I don’t know nor am I willing to look into tax implications.  It sucks he was fined, and glad reduced, but it comes with the game.  This is not the first stupid penalty and fine, and won’t be the last.
