HIT OF THE DAY

It was an unfortunate sight late in the third quarter when Broncos fullback Reuben Droughns and left tackle Matt Lepsis hit Jacksonville defensive lineman Paul Spicer. Spicer broke his right leg on the play. Droughns blocked Spicer high and Lepsis, who appeared not to see Droughns, hit Spicer low. The play upset several Jacksonville players. Fans booed Broncos players when they consoled Spicer while he was on a cart, leaving the field.

What was even better was having to listen to one of the Baldinger bros color commentary saying that the guy was down with heat exhaustion while his foot was turned 180 degrees and there putting an air cast on his leg.

1st runner up for dirtiest play of the day...

(From Baltimore Sun)

What won't be forgotten anytime soon was how Todd Heap was treated after spraining his right ankle.

In obvious pain and favoring his injured leg, Heap still lined up so the Ravens could spike the ball to stop the clock near the end of the first half, only to be shoved to the ground by Pittsburgh linebacker Joey Porter. Heap was helped by trainers back to the locker room, where X-rays were negative.

"That's Porter," Jamal Lewis said. "He's a cheap guy. Would you expect anything different from him? That's low, but we'll see him again."

There was no competitive advantage.
It was a clean Hit.
We do not cheat.
etc., etc., etc.

The part that's hard for me to believe is that Lepsis was going at the guy's legs. Denver never plays that way.

I saw that play. I thought it was rather funny. Not that Heap got hurt, but he was standing with his hands holding himself up and then Porter just rolled him.

If I was heap Porter's nuts would have a BIG bullseye on them come rematch time. I'd jack his ass up good.

So, when the refs threw the flag on that play where Spice's leg was broken, what did they say the penalty was for?

Man right now I would take a cheap shot from the Chiefs defense, at least we would be putting someone on the ground.

Wha? Flag? Now I'm confused, because last week a flag didn't indicate an illegal hit. Now all of a sudden you need one?

You guys didn't hear the entire quote from Lewis.

That's Porter. He's a cheap guy. Would you expect anything different from him? That's low, but we'll see him again. And when we do I'll kill him. No seriously, I'll kill him. Well actually, I'll have two of my guys do it, but he'll be dead either way. You feelin' me?

No, I was just wondering. I take it from your response that there was no flag on the play? So I can just chalk this up to The Chiefs Planet definition of whining: "There was no flag so STFD and STFU".

Know what you mean. I hear things like this lately:

"Salary cap deferrals for Elway and Davis mean nothing! Just because we had creative accounting during our SB years does not taint the victories"

* Voilated the salary cap during thier Super Bowl years

A lot of people feel the need to jump in and defend them. I don't. I know there was some restructuring going on with Elway's and Davis' contract during those years. Both of those players got a lot of cash and didn't mind restructuring to save cap space. There was also an issue with Elway's retirement date because he appeared in beer commercials for Coors, which the league doesn't allow current players to do. It sounds like the Bronco FO screwed up the contracts and now they are getting burned for it. A fine and a draft choice. I can certainly live with that. I know that all of you would feel the same way if you were in my position. I just checked those Lombardi trophies recently. There's no taint on them. They're still silver, and shiny as hell.

Getting burned for it? Please define "burned" ROFL

It was more likely planned. All the * DONX had to give up for cheating was a fine and a couple of # 3 picks. With "fines" like that, I'm surprised more teams dont try it. :hmmm:

Also, they never came clean like Pittsburgh did as it took 20 months of Al Davis calling them out and an investigation to find the latest cap violation.

* Violated the salary cap during thier championship years. :shake:

Define "getting burned" for breaking the rules? What do you not understand? Are you really that dense? I have a feeling that this issue is like a new toy for you, and a welcome distraction from how the Chiefs have done in the last couple of weeks. What's surprising to me is that as hard as some teams come up against the cap year after year there are still teams that don't even use all of the space allowed.

Thatís one thing you have to give the faiders, at least when they had a team and players, they were proud of being dirty, and took great pride in it.
The donkoís on the other hand are sneaky lil bastards who wonít own up to what they do.
Guess thatís the difference between the blue collar (and jail) crowd and the whine and cheese eaters.

Upon further review, the block that broke Jacksonville defensive end Paul Spicer's right leg during Sunday's game - and likely ended his season - was not a cheap shot.

That verdict came down Monday, shared by B-r-o-n-c-o-s coach Mike Shanahan and Jaguars coach Jack Del Rio.

"It did not appear to be a deliberate attempt to hurt him," Del Rio told the Jacksonville media Monday. "This is a violent sport, and unfortunately things like that happen. It probably will be fined, but I don't think it was a deliberate attempt."

Um, maybe you didn't read it real well, but it was the Broncos offensive players using an illegal chop block to break a Jacksonville defender's leg. As Del Rio noted, it will probably be fined.
