Video: Hit on Ellis Hobbs

Ellis_hobbs_hit

UPDATE: Hobbs has a disc injury, but x-rays were negative.  When asked if he thought Hobbs had a concussion, Reid said "listen dude, they took him off on a board.  I don't know."  Solid deduction there by Andy.

According to Andrea Kramer, whose crack reporting first informed us that Ellis Hobbs had a neck injury (thanks), Hobbs is up and walking around- a great sign.

Video of the hit after the jump.  It's just wrong that this wasn't a penalty, yet Kurt Coleman's hit on Austin Collie two weeks ago was, because Collie was "defenseless."  The intention of the helmet to helmet rule is there, but it needs a lot of work.  One could argue that the hit on Hobbs was more dangerous.

  1. They’re professional football players. A hit is a hit is a hit. Call them all, or don’t call any of them.

  2. Yeah, the one time Asante actually makes a real football hit (and a clean tackle in the same game!), he gets a penalty for it. Just stupid.

  3. ITS FOOTBALL LAST TIME CHECKED THAT’S PART OF THE GAME.I DON’T LIKE TO SEE ANYONE GET HURT BUT THAT’S FOOTBALL

  4. Being a defenseless receiver and helmet to helmet are different. Collinsworth screwed that up a little bit. I don’t believe either Hagan or Hobbs were defenseless players. However, both were helmet to helmet. When I saw the play live, I thought maybe Hobbs moved a little and that caused Tollefson or whatever his name is to hit him in the head. But Hobbs had pretty much stopped moving. He led with the helmet and clearly should be a fine/penalty. The Coleman penalty a couple weeks ago was different. He didn’t lead with the helmet (I’m actually not sure he hit him with the helmet) but they said Collie was a defenseless receiver. First, he caught the ball and fumbled, which the refs messed up, but that eliminates you from being a defenseless receiver. Apart from that, no hit to the head and Collie was pushed into him
