helmet to helmet contact is legal on running plays or after the reciever is declared not defenseless; however NO PLAYER can deliberately use the helmet as weapon by spearing

The only reason their was no call on the eye gouging is if the refs didn't see it. Which will be lame excuse cause his hands should be nowhere above the shoulders

The refs were obviously against us. No excuse for all the missed called when flags were coming out cause Rankin breathe too hard on Ryan & penality on LeRibeus that negated 3 pts

Re: You guys know more. Please explain why...

The shine is coming off of this "miracle" season.
JUST LIKE '09!!! LOL
Gotta blame someone.
The team wins more than seven games for the first time in four years and someone has to be blamed when they don't win every game!

Don't blame the same culprits.

PRAISE THEM for not being 7-9.

My understanding is that an RB running w the ball is not a defenseless player, so that's why the call wasn't made. However, the eye gouge on MT should have definitely been a penalty.

Kamara was legit. Kamara had lowered his head and the defender didnít lead with the top of his helmet. Idk why hands to the face wasnít called on the eye poke. I also donít know why the hit on Ingramís back wasnít spearing. Lot of bad calls but the Kamara hit was legit. I think it was intentional. We need to play just as nasty in the Dome.

It wasn't deliberate.

It has a lot to do with what the player intends to do.
It was mostly a clean hit that freakishly landed into Kamara's brain.
It never looked like the defender deliberately hit Kamara in the head.

Michael Thomas - that was a deliberate eye poke They missed that.
Refs also missed a tons of holding calls by the falcon offensive line.

I agree, glad to get this one behind us. Tired of talking about it.
I have to disagree; Jones definitely lowers his head before tackling Kimara.
Can you imagine the crap storm the Saints would have endured if they treated this like the Seahwaks did with Russell a few games ago?

I think Jones gets a pass from a lot of fans here because he’s from LSU. If he played for Ole Miss or Alabama and people here would be screaming for his head.
Legal, yes but it was intentional. He did it twice more.

Kamara is now going to be running with a face shield. That's one less uncalled penalty to worry about now. The hit on Kamara looked legit to me with no ill intent. I don't believe he targeted Kamara's head.
