Come on guys, that hit was perfectly legal. I hate like hell that it happened and it really changed the complexion of the game, but there was nothing wrong with it. PT clearly caught the ball, turned up field and became a runner. Helmet to helmet is allowed every time in that case. Let's not act like Viqueen fans and take our medicine. We got beat fair and square by a team that did more thing to win than we did on Saturday.
