As you may have read here at the 'House, Jared Allen may be facing a suspension for his helmet-to-helmet hit on Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers. Well, if Allen is facing a suspension for his hit, than the NFL will likely have to sentence Ray Edwards to the jail time for his hit on Bucs quarterback Jeff Garcia.
Garcia scrambled to his right and threw an incomplete pass in the second quarter against the Vikes today. Three steps after he let loose the pass, Edwards, coming from Garcia's blind side, stuck his helmet directly in Garcia's right earhole. Amazingly, Garcia got up, after writhing in pain, and stayed in the game.
There have been a lot of bogus fines on NFL defensive linemen and linebackers for simply sacking quarterbacks as they are supposed to, but, in Edwards' case, it's hard to think he'll have any defense if the NFL takes a hefty bite of his next paycheck.
