Default Rahim Moore fined for hit

http://espn.go.com/nfl/story/_/id/83...-nfl-roughness

"Safeties Madieu Williams of Washington, Taylor Mays of Cincinnati and Rahim Moore of Denver have been fined $21,000 each by the NFL for unnecessary roughness in Week 1."

Kinda crappy, I fell into the camp that thought he didn't lead with the head, stayed low and couldn't avoid contact...

Couldn't find video, this is not in full speed:

The worst part is you can FULLY see him shift his body to try to get the shoulder in first.

Thanks, No Fun League

So, Im watching the game vs the yinzers again, because after reading through all the Falcons blogs, I was wondering why we didnt have more sacks on Big Ben.

Relevant to this thread and the Rahim hit, 3rd qtr with 5:17, Pitt has the ball, 3rd and 10. Dumervil is held, and by held, I mean he is tackled from behind by the Guard.

I would imagine that Goodell cannot risk having sub-par refs in for such a high profile game--MNF--so, for me, it will be interesting to see the OL vs DL Broncos.

Bad call, bad fine.

The steelers' receiver clearly lowered his head to avoid the hit. If anything, Rahim turned his head to the side and took the brunt of it.

A B.S. call IMO other than the league will penalize these regardless of the defenders intent. If I were Moore I'd challenge it just to make a point.

Rahim should be fined for being stupid. He hit the guy late after it was clearly an incompletion, and he popped him helmet to helmet. Instead for a 4th down punt, it was first and ten. He's lucky he still has a job.

"Rahim Ted" doesn't have much of a ring to it, though.

Take off your orange color glasses, Jack. It was a dumb play and he's lucky that he didn't hurt the team more than he did.

Hell, Moore was just going for the INT and Sanders got in the way. It's tough on safeties these days.

there was nothing wrong with Moore's hit. he was aiming for the mid section and the Steelers WR dropped down and lower his head and shoulder into Rahim.
the call was some bull****, the fine is some bull**** and anyone calling Moore stupid or moronic for the hit needs to actually watch the play and see what Moore was aiming at.

Aiming for his "mid section". Where is the "mid section" in Alabama? Is it near the head? I did watch the hit, and I watched the replay of the hit, and it was anything but routine, and Rahim was nowhere near the fellows "mid section".

The fact that he was fined the same as Taylor mays is retarded. I watched that hit live and mays leaves his feet and launches upwards into the guys chin with his head down. Moore dove downwards towards the guys thighs and the receiver ducked into the hit. Their helmets hit so sure throw a flag but to fine the guy the same as mays is a dick move.

This is exactly what I was thinking when it happened. The way it happened I felt Moore was just trying to tackle and was wondering why. Pay attention.
