    Mason threw a punch, but it was intercepted.

    I agree , this is something completely out of the confines of the game/field

    helmet to helmet hits , even when done on purpose is still in the confines of a football game

    What we saw last night was a straight up attack with a weapon with intent to split his head open

    Yep, mason is going to get some punishment out of this as well, understanding his mood after throwing 4 picks, he needs to control his temper better than he did.....

    Are we sure Fichtner wasn't involved in this melee too? Maybe he can get a multi-game suspension. Please?

    Dont know if this has been mentioned b4, but Miles would have hit MR a second time with the helmet if Pouncy didnt get in the way..He was swinging his helmet backhanded when Pouncy showed up

    Can't believe some here are blaming Mason for any of this.

    Guess you all missed the roughing the passer that led to Mason retaliating. Then you sure as hell missed him being dragged along the turf before having his helmet ripped off but yeah, he should have turned the other cheek.

    DD should have suplexed that ****er.

    Thats a very good point and is why I said he had full intentions of splitting Masons head open ..Should be dealt with as an assault

    Rewind even more.... 0:08 seconds left and Garrett throws Mason down to the ground well after the ball was thrown.... late hit by Garrett started the altercation. Mason probably said.... dude get TF off me.... Garrett was still on top of Mason when Mason (while laying on his back) started wrestling Garrett's helmet..... Mason was clearly in a vulnerable position so anything he did from that point on was self defense..... including the kick to the nuts. Really no need to be throwing down a QB with 8 seconds left and a 2 TD lead in the game. Nothing done justifies the helmet hit directly to Mason's head.... NOTHING.

    I wasn’t blaming Mason for any actions that Myles did. I’m sure the vast majority here would be pissed off if someone was allowed to be thrown down to the field like a rag doll(which if you’re one of the darling QBs of the league that flag hits the turf before you do). I was just trying to look at it through an unbiased lens. I’m just imagining the league is going to be as harsh as possible

    I was thinking the same thing, DeCastro should've body slammed that POS Garrett, his suspension would've been worth it.

    It's totally pointless to do if your Garrett. 12 seconds left. 3rd and 29 , a simple dump off pass, and you have to drive the guy into the ground for good measure? Your defense had 4 INT and pressured him all night, what more do you have to prove?
    You beat the Steelers for the 1st time in 5 years. Celebrate. It was beyond stupid to put yourself in that situation.

    Now he hurt his team. More than likely 6 games which ends his season or a season ending suspension.

    All for a guy who has every tool in the bag to be the NFL Defensive MVP. Just a total stupid move by him.

    Then you going to play the most mad steelers team every on the road in two weeks? DUMB

    Pouncey had a really good argument that he was just protecting Rudolph...right up until he tried to kick Garrett in the head.

    That factors into it very little if at all, because like I said years ago and still holds true, this team scares no one.

    You guys are to easy. Pouncey 2 games. Garrett, 100,000 fine and out of the NFL. Think that is to hard. I my opinion I think that is the only way they are going to stop this kind of thing from happening. Same thing with targeting, first offense 100,000 fine, don’t get paid for that game plus 3 games suspension. Second offense 100,000 fine and your out of the NFL. But we have a leader in the NFL that is sleeping with to many of the owners.

    Nothing wrong with it IMHO. I remembered Richard Seymour punching BB and no one came to his defense. That was pathetic

    I've gone back and watched the whole thing more times now, and while the helmet hit is definitely scary and awful, I am increasingly bothered by the fact that he was dragging MR all up and around by his face mask before that too. That shouldn't be overlooked in this incident for the damage it could have also done to his neck.

    The difference is guys drag each other around by the face mask every game. It usually happens between linemen, but not always. It's part of the game the same way that helmet to helmet is. It's not allowed but it happens. Swinging a damn bowling ball and smashing someone in the head is not even a grey area. It's literally something that doesn't exist, at least until last night.

    Imagine if Pouncey wasn't there between the 2 O.O
