Nothing Wrong With Harper's Hit...Officially

NFL tells New Orleans Saints that safety Roman Harper's hit should not have been penalty - New Orleans Saints Football NFL News - NOLA.com

The NFL's head of officials called the New Orleans Saints this week to confirm what roughly 70,000 irate Saints fans in the Superdome were already certain of. The league said there was nothing wrong with safety Roman Harper's hit on Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler during the first quarter of Sunday's 30-13 Saints victory.

obviously a body in motion, especially a human body with limited balance, tends to retain that motion.

which confirms my feeling that we really won that game 30-6.

Was in Lambert or Youngblood that said put them in a dress if you don't want us hitting them ..... the "Tom Brady" rule is getting out of hand, i thought it was a BS call on Harper when it happened, sadly the NFL had to apologize to him

I think they should issue you a credit for your next illegal hit.

Like a "get out of fine free" card.

That was an awful call... them telling us afterwards doesn't do us any good. I'd like them to get it right the first time around.

why not they add things every single year. a penalty like that could change the outcome of a game easily and it should'nt come to that, so thats a great gesture mitch and i guarantie that one day u will be able to challenge a terrible unsportsmanlike bs call.
