Poor penalty on Lockett for blocking and now Diggs getting ejected... 🤔

He lead with his helmet

It’s a bad play bad hit but it’s not like he was intentionally trying to hurt him.

This game is being called soft AF

Come on .., if that was a Patriot defensive player hitting Lockett your tune would be different

Keep telling us how thick and big Newton is Collinsworth and we don't realize it until he walks in the room.

That Diggs ejection was 100% warranted based on today's NFL rules. In general, that is a hit that could end a career.

Agreed. IDK what the defender is supposed to do. Let him catch it first? Newton practically threw the receiver into his mouth.  Announcers were acting like there was some alternative there where I didn't see one. Go low and blow the dude's knee out?

I get where you're coming from and agree to an extent, but dropping your head and leading with it is unnecessary. 

You can hit with the shoulder the exact same way without dipping your chin, and keep your face level.

I hear you, but that was such a bang bang play over the middle. Sometimes you can see a defender line him up from a mile away and level him.  Newton led him right into him.  It is tough to ask a dude to him someone slightly less violently, but violently, but don't miss, while also track the ball, and don't get hurt at the same time. I didn't feel that was a headhunting play. Just bang-bang.
