Fine.... Label kickers non-football players and make them run off the field after they punt. I doubt Garvin even knew he was the punter... Saw an opposing player and just nailed him.


yep

Y! SPORTS

I think he should have been fined for the area he hit him, not this defenseless player crap
Maybe punters should wear a different color jersey so players know not to him them.
pink perhaps

Horrific.
Hope the guy recovers.

I foresee a rule change. Not sure how they will do it but something like a slight costume identifier for punters/kickers. But, but these guys have gotta know it is a jungle out there and what can occur.

It looks almost identical to the hit we put on Kurt Warner in 2009. That was a legal hit...right?

Yeah it looks like it, except for the fact that the Warner hit was lower in the midsection, angled more from the side -- this hit is full-on frontal direct at his shoulders/neck, the guy hits him like ten times harder than McCray, and the punter is like 20 pounds lighter than Warner...otherwise they are identical hits I suppose
