I thought they looked more egregious at full speed. The Murphy hit should have been easily flagged as well as the clothesline to Fleener. Refs were really bad last night.They are both easy to see in slow motion, but the game is played at full speed. Maybe fines will come later.
If the league was serious about player safety (which of course it isn't), they'd wear soft pads and helmets.
Murphy hit was ugly too. I don't condemn defensive backs for taking a shot at a runner. It's what they're supposed to do. No fault of theirs.I know people won't like this but, I saw the lasco hit. At full speed it didn't look like a deliberate helmet to helmet. In slow motion it looks bad, but they're playing at full speed out there.
Did not see the murphy hit.
They won't be. James Harrison will be. Steelers are a dirty team. They always head hunt.
The end of Murphy? He probably had the best run of the night for any running back he pretty much got grabbed then cleaned up by the safety. I don't know what people are seeing but Murphy is a good returner and talented runner overall he can help this team speed wise.So Pittsburgh didn't learn anything from the Bengals last year I guess.
This has to spell the end for Murphy though I think. And clears up the backfield competition when Lasco gets his "redshirt" season.
