    Romo is having an x-ray today. That's means the line about just getting the wind knocked out of him was pure bs. I have little doubt they gave him a shot at halftime. There's a very good chance he has a rib injury and will miss some time.

    With the grimacing he was doing, it looked liked ribs or something of the sort. Hoping he is ok.

    The way he was helped off at halftime, tells me it was more than getting the wind knocked out of him.

    It was clearly a crown of the helmet hit.

    Should have definitely been penalized, and there should be a fine coming.

    But I doubt it.

    Seemed like a legit tackle to me.

    That's a clean legal hit. We shouldn't be fining players simply because there was an injury.

    It was a legal hit. I am pissed because Terrance Williams didnt at least make it more worth it and catch the damn ball

    Oh, good grief.. Nothing wrong with that hit.

    And, no, there was no flag on that play. And, there shouldn't of been.

    I thought the same thing last night, but watching the video at the link above, I think Kiawunke may have led with the crown of his helmet. If we could see the reverse angle, it would definitely tell the whole story.

    one of them was clean and legal.

    Kiwi led with the crown of the helmet, which is not clean.

    My question is how come our dline doesn't hit qb's as hard as our qb gets hit?

    I still don't see it, watching it again. He wrapped him up and tackled him. It's football.

    Because other teams have more talent along the DL.

    maybe you just don't know the rules.

    2) lowering the head and making forcible contact with the top/crown or forehead/"hairline" parts of the helmet against any part of the passer’s body. This rule does not prohibit incidental contact by the mask or non-crown parts of the helmet in the course of a conventional tackle on a passer.
