Geathers is a POS no doubt in my mind.....I thought our guys were quite classy. Later in the game Palmer scambled and two Chiefs could have taken some cheap shots at him but both held up. He even dove head first. Geathers could learn a thing or two, but probably wont. I hope the NFL fines his butt hard for that cheapshot.

Yeah right, a 180lb WR moving perpendicular to a 280lb DE "shoved" him in the back, causing him to mysteriously dive towards a sliding QB.

F*ck you and f*ck your cheap-shotting Geathers. The NFL will fine his ass for that blatent cheap shot. Now go troll somewhere else, douchebag

It looks to me that the blow to Trent Green would have been ten times worse if Geathers had not richoted off of another player and spun into Green. I doubt he will even get fined as it wasn't a direct hit and it wasn't intentional even though it was extremely ugly and dangerous. It could have been worse. I shudder to think what the injury might have been then...

Really? A DVR? You mus' be one of them jillionaires er sumpin.

There are all these rules in place to baby the QB. Trent Green was starting his slide before this ****er "was blocked" into him. I've seen flags thrown for a D-lineman lightly shoving a QB down, how does thrusting your shoulder into the head of a sliding QB NOT warrant one? Atrocious.

If I were the Chiefs coach, Geathers would be wearing his knee cap on the other side of his leg right now.

he was going in for the hit ...... the contact by our wide receiver was minimal at best.


the only part of it that was dirty/illegal was that fact that he didn't hit him with his helmet.


and i'm not so sure that he wasn't trying to do that ..... he clearly wasn't "Seeing what he hit"

his head was tucked and he was diving into a sliding quarterback.


the hit by the receiver didn't change his trajectory

My opinion of it is it's pretty questionable to not flag it in a league where they protect QB's like this one does. The only explanation you can give is that the guy was going into his tackle dive before Green was completely down into his slide and he can't change directions in midair. I haven't seen the play enough times to really determine if that was the case yet.

By that token I don't think the guy was purposely making a dirty play trying to injure Green.

Lame f***ng answer.....that "shove" was a glancing blow at best. Geathers was going for Green all along even though Green was going into a slide.

The best revenge for a POS like Geathers would be for the same thing to be done to him....

And what is so f***ng hilarious is to see a Bengal fan come on here and chastise us for complaining about the hit that took out their QB.....last year when the hit by Kimo Van Olhoff took out Palmer's knee you guys were screaming for his head....pissing and moaning like pu$$ies.

It was not helmet to helmet. Geathers engaged the same time that Trent did. After watching it 100 times, I don't think it was illegal. The injury sucks, but if our O-line wasn't so fricking worthless the oldest guy on the team with a replacement knee wouldn't have had to scramble for the third time on the drive to keep us from punting.

I've just watched it about 10x on my Tivo. Geathers had strong momentum toward Green. Green went into his slide late. Kennison shoved Geathers. But even at this point Geathers could have gone into Green "hands up" breaking his fall and doing no harm. Instead Geathers dropped his shoulder to deliver a blow to the QB. Geathers head was up as Trent entered his slide, he dropped his head as he lowered his shoulder to deliver the blow. That shows intent to hit the QB going into his slide. If the NFL continues with their policy of protecting QBs, Geathers will be fined heavily.

TrickyNicky
09-10-2006, 05:56 PM
Intentional or not, it is still a foul. If you fall or roll into a punter, on accident or even if he falls onto you, it's a penalty. It's the same situation with sliding QB's for their protection.

I don't think it was dirty, that is with malicious intent, but it was illegal per the rules.

Just to be absolutely clear:

It does not have to be helmet to helmet to be illegal. You cannot hit a QB on the ground.

Was it a favor to hit him with just the shoulder? No.

But all D players in the NFL are always looking for a shot at the QB. I don't necessarily think the hit was dirty, but it was illegal like I said. If a Chiefs player left his feet to lay a hit on Palmer at the exact same time he started a slide and contact was made, I would expect a penalty just the same. For some reason when it happened today, no flag came. The refs just sat there holding their dicks, afraid to make a decision.

Just to be absolutely clear:

It does not have to be helmet to helmet to be illegal. You cannot hit a QB on the ground.

Who wears a size 7 helmet?

I never said it had to be helmet to helmet. Geathers engaged at the same time that Trent slid, and Kennison definately blocked him and changed his path of travel. I am not saying that he couldn't of pulled up, and I would imagine that he will be fined for the hit out of principle, but I do not not think it was an illegal hit.

If you Google nfl rules "hook slide" , the first result sends you to Chiefsplanet.com to a thread where Gaz says that we should do away with the rule. If Gaz has the final say, it was a non-penalty hit.

No, somebody should have gone after Geathers' knees on the very next play. Herm should have jumped up the referee's ass for blowing that call. An OLman should have cracked some f*cking bungle's skull at the end of that play.

None of those things happened. I find that disparaging.

Learn to watch the game. He was shoved from behind and hit Trent with his shoulder, which would be a legal hit even had he not been blocked.

It sucks when your guy gets hurt, but it's not always dirty and wasn't this time.


Yeah, he didn't start his dive before Trent started to slide. Right. Geathers took a cheap shot. Actually the one that Carson got hit on in the playoffs last year wasn't a cheap shot, but I heard plenty of otherwise from a lot of Cincy fans and Carson himself. I hope Geathers dies a painful horrible death and his family is left penniless and starves to death. F*ck him. And F*ck you too.

I can't say for sure, but at least the last 4 or 5 years. There have been plenty of fines given to players for hits that were "questionable", but in the oppinion of the referee's and the majority of everybody else were clean hits.

IMO, the Geathers hit was clean. However, he could have let up so he will be fined to make an example out of him.

I agree with Laz's post. I was livid in front of my TV that our team (especially our offensive line...Turley????) wasnt going after the guy.

But this goes back to a deeper problem these chiefs have had for several years now...they (outside of LJ and Trent and possibly Allen) HAVE NO HEART.

It started with Vermeil piecing together a team that would rather have a good cry after a loss, rather than getting pissed as hell about it because they're competitors.

And now....the tradition carries on with Herm Edwards...as he breaks in "new rules" for training camp and the way business is done on the field and off. No hard practices at camp, no cussing (which is ridiculous)...and no fighting.

We have been, and continue to be, a very soft football team.

The rest of this chiefs team (outside of Trent, LJ, and Allen) should cut off their balls and mail them to geathers and the rest of the Bengals for their timid reactions to what is defined as an illegal hit in the NFL rule book.

If I were a player on this team, I wouldnt give a damn about a fine from the NFL, or a fine from my puss head coach - I would have went after Geathers....it's part of being a man - and part of being a team that goes to war each weekend.

I've just watched it about 10x on my Tivo. Geathers had strong momentum toward Green. Green went into his slide late. Kennison shoved Geathers. But even at this point Geathers could have gone into Green "hands up" breaking his fall and doing no harm. Instead Geathers dropped his shoulder to deliver a blow to the QB. Geathers head was up as Trent entered his slide, he dropped his head as he lowered his shoulder to deliver the blow. That shows intent to hit the QB going into his slide. If the NFL continues with their policy of protecting QBs, Geathers will be fined heavily.

I agree with this post, except for the part where Geathers gets fined.

I've come to expect the NFL to screw the Chiefs.

CinciFan
09-10-2006, 07:50 PM
Intentional or not, it is still a foul. If you fall or roll into a punter, on accident or even if he falls onto you, it's a penalty. It's the same situation with sliding QB's for their protection.

I don't think it was dirty, that is with malicious intent, but it was illegal per the rules.


I don't disagree with that, and I'm a bit surprised there was no flag. I believe it was because Trent was going for every yard and didn't slide until they were quite close. I presume Geathers didn't know if/when TG would slide until it was too late and Geathers had already leaped at TG. Given that state of events, the officials didn't believe Geathers should be penalized.

Irrespective of that and whether Geathers gets fined (I don't really care but I don't think he should), I just hope Trent Green fully recovers and is able to first of all lead a normal life and second return to your team ASAP and lead you into the postseason. This isn't just a "make up" post either - I said I wanted you guys to make the postseason a week ago on this board in a discussion about how the Bengals should/would execute their offense against your D.

I would MUCH rather lose today's game than have any injury, especially one like that, to any player but especially a warrior and respectable guy like Green. I wish him and the team the best.

Yes, he was falling forward and off balance, and still drops his head and shoulder in an aggressive attempt to lay some wood, rather than place his hands in front in an attempt to lessen the blow.

I'm not going to get into a debate whether or not the hit was illegal or legal. Too tough to tell, although it does look like Kennison shoved Geathers. Hopefully Trent is alright he is a class act all the way. Note to the rest of the Bengals fans, leave this subject alone. I know everyone got pissed off when Steeler fans tried to talk about Carson.

I only saw the play during the telecast, which I viewed on a large screen in a sports bar. Here are my thoughts:

I do not believe the hit was helmet-to-helmet.

I do not believe that Trent Green had gone into his slide early enough that a defender could be reasonably expected to avoid delivering a hard blow, especially when the defender had himself been redirected by Kennison's block.

My deep respect for cdcox's opinion, which he offered after reviewing the play on his own replay system, causes me to withhold judgment as to whether Geathers will get fined. It seems possible that the NFL may fine Geathers, although at the time I saw the replays, the shot looked clean.

The injury itself was due to a tremendous amount of momentum from BOTH Geathers and Green. In other words, Green slid too late and ended up contributing a lot of momentum to the resultant vector that whiplashed his head into the turf.

Carson Palmer should have been getting buried--cleanly--a LONG, LONG, LONG time before the time of Green's injury. My Chiefs got their asses completely kicked, did not even come close to testing Palmer, and ended up losing one of the bravest Chiefs because the Chiefs didn't get to Palmer nearly as much as the Bengals were getting to Green.

Herm Edwards opinion about the play doesn't mean a helluva lot because (a) it's hard to see straight when your getting your ass kicked and (b) if the Chiefs had executed a better game plan than one that caused them, for example, to attempt 51-yard FGs in the rain, then it's possible that Trent Green wouldn't have gotten so desparate as to try to eke out extra yards on his scrambles.

Learn to watch the game. He was shoved from behind and hit Trent with his shoulder, which would be a legal hit even had he not been blocked.

It sucks when your guy gets hurt, but it's not always dirty and wasn't this time.

And that would be your same answer if that ILLEGAL hit would have happened to Palmer. That means you were fine with Palmer's knee injury last year. Trent had started the slide and he was looking to punish him! There was no shove, the receiver missed Geathers. It was a cheap ass shot, meant to hurt the QB and you will see when he pays the NFL some money. It was a CHEAP shot this time, and would be a DIRTY play no matter who did the hitting and what QB got hit. Take off the Bengals NEVER would paly that way glasses and just admit it, don't try to make excuses tht it was legal, he got blocked int he back, there was an earthquake, my dog ate my homework excuse!!

I don't know whether he will get fined or not. After watching the first 3 times, I thought it was clean. But it's pretty clear to me that he saw Green go into his slide and then dropped his shoulder to deliver a blow, after Kenison pushed him. From my perspective, Geatehers gets a bigger benefit of a doubt in slow mo, than he does in live action.

I would hate to see what you would have done with film of John Wilkes Booth shooting Lincoln. Geathers has already put his shoulder down, either heading for his knee/s whichis crap, but as I see it Trent was OBVIOUSLY beginning to slide and Gethers made up his mind to crunch him. By the way, using YOUR logic, if Kennison pushed Geathers in theback, how come NO flag for illegal block int he back. I will give you the answer for this one, because Kennison NEVER touched Geathers!!

Well, I don't consider it a dirty hit because he lead the shot with his shoulder, which is legal. He didn't spearhead or take a shot at his head or knees.

It's just that it's illegal to hit a sliding QB, even if its just a small hit. Even if you slide late, the QB is still sliding and any other time, that would have been flagged IMO.

I hope Trent's ok, but if you look at the replay, I really cant see how its a dirty hit. Open up your minds a little further and see how theres another possibility than a dirty hit on your beloved chiefs.

watching that replay you can see that Geathers never flinches in his motion, he sets his feet and lunges for green... Kennison never touches him falling behind straight to the ground.

Watch. at the same exact moment that the corner sets his feet you can see the Geathers doing the same, the WR has yet to supposedly hit him and he is already moving forward. IF he was trying to stop he was unable to stop as quick as he wanted and his body was still moving forward, it would take another angle to prove this (it's the NFL they have like 4 angles of every play)

Had the WR hit him the WR would have fallen backwards and down and the DE would have moved to the left in the screen slightly, maybe enough to miss Green.

it was a dirty shot, an intentional shot, and could disrupt the Chiefs level of play for the entire season

Besides this injury and a couple of problems we had, the team looked decent. The offense left something to be desired, but I saw an improvement in the D. And for the record I don't cheer for Minor League Football (college) so I could care less if they could beat my college team.

Yeah, ok! Kennison would not have fallen backwards after pushing Geathers! :bong:

Bottom line to me is that Trent Green has a very good understanding of the slide rule and of his own safety. He saw Gathers coming and went into his slide expecting that "saftey net" rule to protect him. It was breached and a flag should have been thrown. I have seen time and time again a flag thrown for the same breach infraction when contact of a much lessor magnitude is made. The refs totally dropped the ball on this call.

if kennison had hit him ..... really hit him, his body would of changed direction.

it didn't ...... at most it twist a couple inches


Green was going into a slide, declaring himself down ... Geathers took a shot anyway.


how are your Cincinnati Bearcats doing anyway?

They probably should have thrown a flag considering how the league protects QB's.

That pretty much sums it up for me as well.

I think Geathers should be expecting something from the NFL in the mail this week. Dirty cheap shot bastard.

I just saw the replay of the hit and it was definitely flagrant and intentional. Green was in his slide before geathers even lowered his shoulder trying to spear a prone target.

I agree that it should have been called. Dirty hit or not, he should still get fined because nothing like this should have the chance of occuring. Sometimes our insticts get in the way of the rules, and this is an unfortunate inncodent. Trent could have done this, Robert should have done this, either way they both should have done something to prevent it alltogether.

No. He said there wasn't a flag because Geathers was pushed in the back, Egon.

The tone she speaks of is the one he used that implied that he thought it was a bad non call, and he said "evidently" in a tone that implied he didn't see EK touch Geathers.

yes he would have. You try pushing something while moving laterally to it.. you will move backwards

Green knows the rules, but he tried to stretch his run out a little too long.

He didn't imply that he didn't see the push in the back though.

Every post gets better and better from you. Regardless when the QB slides there is nothing you can do, you have to give up hitting him. It doesn't matter if he tries to get 80 extra yards, when he slides the play ends. Do you even know how the NFL rules work?

I think some people have forgotten that football is a contact sport....we scream about killing the other teams QB. There were countless posts and killing Palmer hitting his bad knee and all that before this game..

Cincy player hammers Trent Green and a criminal act has occured, obviously there is some double standard cause it happened to our team. And the result made it look worse than it really was.

I don't personally think it was dirty because Trent slid so late that you're going to get hit when you do that. And the guy had already started going to his dive/tackle motion when Trent slid. Like the official told Herm you can't change direction in mid air. I mean honestly what do you people want the guy to do? Completely contort his 285lb body in mid air to miss Green?

How many times have Chiefs been flagged on ticky-tack contact over the last several years? That is fine, rules of the game. You go after the QB and you know you are going to get flagged. You have to play smart. We've paid our dues into the baby-the-QB account. All we are asking is that our QB be given the same protection as every othe QB in the league.
