    Chung: 'It was an honest mistake'


    I hope he has a few more honest mistakes this week. We all know that Peyton, as good as he is, folds when he gets hit enough.

    Not what I wanted to hear from him. I hope this doesn't make him hesitate before nailing another QB.

    I agree, but I believe BB has told him not to let this bother him and go for it.

    This is not about roughing the passer, it is about being aggressive on the pass rush. I am all for protecting the QB but there is a big difference in going for an unprotected leg and making a solid hit. In the case of Chung it was NOT a head shot, it looked that way because his head flew back.

    It was a clean solid hit.

    I'm sure in public it's what's needed to be said but behind closed doors BB is patting him on the back saying "that a boy"

    BB should pay his fine.

    This is the difference between the Pats and the Ravens.  If this were the Ravens Chung would have given interviews after the game complaining about the officials and crying.

    Agree but Kraft not BB.

    Paying the fine for him as a means of condoning what looked to me like a textbook hit is a great idea in theory, but I'd be very surprised if it's not against NFL policy.

    Here is my question.

    Where does all of the money collected in fines go?

    I believe it goes to NFL Charities, although what that arm of the league supports is anyone's guess.

    Charities.  I don't recall exactly where I read that, but I did read that before.

    Guys it's obvious Goodell took a pay cut so he needs to makeup the difference somehow.

    NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell takes 20 percent pay cut

    By Doug Tatum

    NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has taken a 20 percent pay cut and the league staff has been trimmed by 15 percent because of a reeling economy.

    Yes, it was. He had intent to hit and, lo and behold, he did hit. No F. Lee Bailey needed here. It is my understanding that NFL Charities helps strengthen community ties by building more sports spaces for the kids to play, however, they also commit funds to educational programs like wood-bringing/working and home economics. All that's missing is Salsa dancing and other wholesome family actvities.

    Whatever happened to rookies in New England being seen and not heard?

    To anybody who says this was a clean hit, you are crazy. The rule clearly states you can not lead with your head. It also states helmet to helmet contact is illegal. The top of Chung's helmet hit Henne right on the chin. Now, having said that I loved the hit. Was a little disappointed because it was on third down, but I figure if you are going to get flagged for roughing the passer make it a good one.

    Rodney Harrison called it a cost of doing business. 

    If a player illegally smacks three key quarterbacks a year (just the key ones, mind you, on first down when it doesn't count for so much,  etc. ), they fine him three times.  Then the club's front office doubles his salary next contract for all the good he did for the club in the past, with expectations of the same in the future.  I'm sure this goes on with many NFL teams.

    Re: Chung: 'It was an honest mistake'

    Ok, since I'm not seeing a link & went straight to this message board, I take it Chung got a fine for his hit.

    Anyway, the whole thing is all a result of many things going on! I re-watched the game and Burgess got the roughing the passer penalty, not Chung! You can clearly see that Burgess' helmet hits the back of Henne's helmet, which caused the flag.  That set in motion, Henne's head going forward, THUS Henne getting smacked in the chin by Chung's helmet!  Because Chung's helmet DID hit Henne's helmet, I believe he got the fine.

    I could be wrong, but that's what I saw.
