back in the 70s kickers were expected to hit - and most came through college playing other positions.

I love Morstead, but again, I am surprised he wasn't ejected

damn...I wonder what makes them decide to fine somebody or not because I know people aren't always fined for it.

Re: Speculation on Morestead's FINE ?

I dont think it was intended, to me it looks Morstead just grabbed what ever fell under his hand... Unless someone thinks that he is fast enough and accurate enough to grab Ted Ginn's facemask at a full sprint?

Facemasking penalties happen every week in the NFL, some intentional some not.. No one get ejected for them.

dude, he 360'd him, and held the facemask for 3 seconds
I am not saying he intended it, but he definitely should have let go

in a league hot and bothered by head and neck injuries, this will definitely be addressed

Dude.. In full speed he held his facemask for no more than 2 seconds if it was 2 seconds. In slow motion you just get a 3 second count.

NFL play is fast... very fast. In 2 seconds you just have time to realize what you are holding onto then let it go..

He was 360'd because of the angle Morestead had.
