Re: Saints P Thomas Morstead fined for facemask tackle on Ted Ginn

Touchdown saving tackle. Maybe a momentum changing tackle. Worth it if Ginn isn't injured.

Classy tweet by Morestead.
Morstead tweeted, “Apologies to @TedGinnJr_19 for the face mask tonight. I'm not the most experienced tackler.... Need to punt better so I don't have to tackle.”

Glad he was not seriously hurt.

Another tackle I don't like is one that seems to have become more popular - hope I can explain this well enough: defender wraps up from the side or in pursuit and swings his body around to put all his weight on the lower body of the runner.

To me, this is almost as dangerous as the horse-collar.

Am I crazy?

If they're handing out fines, might as well fine the D lineman responsible for tossing Sproles around like his own personal play toy.

Boy that would have been bad if he hadn't made the tackle.
