    Asking out of curiosity, is there a way to look at the fines levied by the NFL week to week?

    The power behind the swing determines if it was malicious or not? He's just trying to love tap him when he throw the punch, cuz they are Bros and wrestling?

    He may not have hulk smashed Martin but a swing is a swing.
    Go punch someone at work, without full force, then tell them you didn't put your all in the swing, let me know how that turns out.

    Btw Martin didn't surprise him or jump out and scare him, it wasn't a reaction swing, it was a cheap shot in a scrummage he didn't think anyone would see.

    Did he get fined for throwing a punch this week?

    The helmet is protection, but guys still get concussions in them. You can make someones brain move in a helmet

    The helmet doesn't make the brain stay in place

    I don't see a problem on this play with either Cox or Martin. Chop blocking is a dirty tactic, but every offensive lineman in the NFL does it, and extracuriculars like this go on in the pile every Sunday.

    Martin made a technically-correct call to chop Cox and cut off his pursuit, Cox freaked out when he felt a guy dive into his legs, and he threw a blind punch at the first guy he saw on the ground. It doesn't make him a dirty player, it makes him a guy who wants to protect his $100 million dollar knees.

    Having a 320 pound man blindside you with a dive into your knees is also a cheap shot.

    Also, saw this from the Twitter thread. Zeke ended Derek Barnett's life with a crack-back on the same play.

    That looked like a legal hit to me.

    It was legal. He was not already engaged with another player and the hit was chest level and targeted at the right arm and chest area.

    I agree, Zeke was more toward the front than the back when he hit him. It was a dang fine hit, I might add.

    Zack Martin didnt break him in half....so it musta been weak....just like his coach's guarantee and the way his teammates backed him up.
    weak.
    That he walked away from it he should consider himself lucky.
    Zack Martin showed ALOT of grace.

    Fletcher Cox with two intentional hits to the Martin's head in the same play. The second may have been him trying to punch Zack Martin in the jaw from that angle. He should be suspended immediately.

    Can't stand dirty players with malicious intent.

    We don't need dirty players in this league. Players like Vontaze Berfict should be kicked out of the league permanently. I mean if the NFL is advertising player concussions etc. Then stand by what you say.

    Here is a small sample size of what Berfict does. He should never be allowed to garnish an NFL uniform again.

    Didn't look like a punch. It looked like he lost his balance.
