    According to the NFL, in order to be penalized for a helmet to helmet hit it has to be determined that it was used as a weapon. Apparently the officials or the league officials did not feel that the hit to Rogers was a blatent hit.

    Other Helmet Related Penalties

    <LI id=jsArticleStep1 itxtvisited="1">According to NFL helmet rules, a player who illegally uses the top of his helmet as a weapon, removes his helmet on the field of play (except when injured) or attacks the head of the quarterback will be hit with a 15-yard penalty. Using a helmet that is not being worn as a weapon results in a 15-yard penalty and automatic disqualification from the game.

    Sue said they were penalized for that hit. If so, I was wrong. Was that the play where it was a late flag? Anyway, it should have been called and I think Sue was right because there were several big penalties on that drive.

    Source: Julius Peppers fined $10K

    ESPN.com news services

    Chicago Bears defensive end Julius Peppers was fined $10,000 for his helmet-to-helmet hit on Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers in Sunday's NFC Championship Game, a league source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.

    On Wednesday, Rodgers shot down speculation that he sustained another concussion on the Peppers hit and credited his helmet for potentially preventing another significant head injury.
    Rodgers switched helmets after sustaining two concussions earlier this season, although he has been hesitant to share details about how the new helmet might be safer.
    "Not too much to talk about," Rodgers said. "I didn't have a concussion. I want to dispel that rumor. No concussion. I was fine. Yeah. Helmets are designed to prevent concussions, I think."
    Information from The Associated Press was used in this report.

    Jeff Fischer out at Tennessee.

    That makes 10 HC firings this season, almost one-third turnover in HC's!

    Longest tenured HC, took his team to the SB once. Seems like they had a great regular season three years ago, lost in the first round and the team has never recovered.

    Is the real failure of the team Bud Adam's decision to draft Vince Young? I think so.

    Some team is going to windup with a solid HC and it was time for Fischer to head for greener pastures.

    He would be an excellent GM or HC with the Cowboys!

    10K that's it.
    NOT big enough.
    The refs. should have thrown his dumbares out of the game.
    And fined,and ,............................
    IF the league recognized it as a headhunting hit then penalize him accordingly.
    Hate it when I'm right

    I wonder if the NFL is selling pictures of the hit on their website to generate profit, as they fine him for doing what has been not only encouraged, but exhaulted for the past 40 years on highlight shows!

    Not sayin its right or wrong.....just how it is.
