Post Blitzer who almost took off RT's head
It was hard to tell but I don't think he grabbed the facemask but he definitely grabbed the helmet and twisted it. :angry: My thoughts were that it should have been an automatic penalty. Any thoughts?

Wasn't that Cushing?

In real time I remember it looked bad but on the replay it didn't seem too bad.

That defenseman would have faced the firing squad if that was Brady :grin:

Yep, Miami doesn't get those calls. It's been that way since Shula left the competition committee.

Pretty sure that it was Cushing. And if you watch the replay, he jumped into the tackle and hit Tanny just below the helmet. In today's NFL, that's supposed to be a penalty for launching yourself into the player.
