    John Phillips testified Monday at Valley Ranch about his horse-collar penalty.

    “All hair,” he said. “One hundred percent all hair.

    “All hair.”

    But, there was no judge in the locker room. No place to appeal. It’s still his penalty.

    Still, the fourth-year tight end told reporters he was surprised he actually got flagged on the dragdown of Joshua Cribbs on the fourth-quarter punt return.

    I was really surprised that he didn't snatch some locks out of Cribs head, he pulled him down with his full body weight.

    Should be a reviewable call. It was a terrible call though.

    If a perfectly legal tackle is going to get flagged "every time," the NFL should just change the rule.

    There are several possible ways to address this:

    1. Make players wear long hair inside the helmet.

    2. Have a rule that the nameplate must be visible.

    3. Instruct officials that any tackle that might be a horse collar but cannot be confirmed due to long hair will not be flagged.

    Some penalties are reviewable --

    -- Too many men on the field.
    -- Illegal forward pass beyond the line of scrimmage.
    -- Illegal forward pass after change of possession.
    -- Illegal touching of a kick.
    -- Illegal forward handoff.

    Fines are announced on Friday. He shouldn't be, though, because it was not a horsecollar tackle.

    I had no idea what this thread was going to be about when I opened it. Pleasantly surprised it was actually football-related.
