Norman - Tuscaloosa, less than 800 miles, otherwise not a bad article.
What game were you watching? There was no spearing.
He moved towards the ball carrier. That makes him fair game.
This is ridiculous! That was a legal clean hit. He led with his shoulder and the only reason there was helmet to helmet contact was because Murray turned his head at the last second. At the point of an interception a quarterback becomes a defender. If he doesn't want to get hit he runs to the sidelines. Murray, being the great competitor that he is, starts towards the ball carrier and was blocked, plain and simple. You dont see all this crying about those types of blocks when it happens to a defensive back or linebacker by a pulling guard. The announcers at the game and apparently Mr Shaw want the quarterbacks to be protected from hits. Well thats why we have cheerleaders.
