Collins fined $50K, Kurt Coleman not fined

The two biggest hits from Sunday, in terms of helmet-to-helmet action, were Kurt Coleman's hit on Austin Collie -- a very controversial shot that ended with Collie being taken off the field in a stretcher -- and Nick Collins' hit on Roy Williams, which prompted pretty much everyone watching to assume that a fine and/or suspension was headed his way.

The fines are now in on those, and Collins has been handed a $50,000 fine, according to Jason LaCanfora, while Coleman has been assessed no fine for his hit on Collie.

Both of these fines (or lack thereof, if you prefer) make sense -- Collins' hit was a straight head-hunting shot a la Brandon Meriweather's hit on Todd Heap and is exactly what the league wants to put a stop to.

Coleman's hit, while technically "against the rules," lacked any real malicious intent and was very difficult to avoid. Therefor it seems that the 15-yard penalty assessed on the field was sufficient punishment.

The hit in Roy Williams case was a deliberate "head to head" and was taken care off correctly. If they want to stop the hits Collie's should have been a fine also. At first from the front angle it appears to be with the shoulder but from the back he hit helmet to helmet and should be fined. Collie took a second blow by hitting his head on the ground which some players get concussions from that. There's no way he should play next week! And finally, if the defensive players that hit like that change, they will get hurt also and two players will be gone from the game for what period of time?

Coleman's hit, technically wasn't "against the rules!!!""  The refs blew the call from the begining.  They said he was a defenseless receiver because he hadn't made a "football move and gotten two feet down and it was incomplete pass when the helmet to helmet hit took place." 1.  It was shoulder to shoulder from both Eagle players.  2. Austin Colllie not only took two steps after the catch, he took 3 thus it can't be an incomplete pass!!!  3.  If it isn't an incomplete pass, then it was a fumble and he is no longer defenseless and can be hit like that.  Hell, he was ducking because he knew he was going to be hit.  That is the defnition of a football move!!  I am glad Collie wasn't more seriously hurt but that play totally exemplifies how too far this has gotten.  I wiss Andy Ried would have challenged that the play was an incompleted pass, then they would have had to pick up the flag.  Bu then again, Reid hasn't been know to use his challenges wisely!!

Agreed. The Packers are a dirty bunch of players and cheat until they get caught, then usually a little more. Their pass coverage "skills" are mostly holding, grabbing jerseys, late hits, etc.
