With respect I will disagree with you on the targeting call on 9. I am not sure if you can use your shoulder pads when making a tackle in todays game but that was a real chance for 9 to level that TE had he stuck his shoulder in that belly instead of his headgear to headgear.
I can see both sides, but I guess I see targeting as intent to hit with the crown of your helmet or to hit another player up in the head as he is defenseless (IE quarterback or crack back blocks). I see it as if he hits that guy in the waste, Battle gets ripped in half as that's where the meat of that guy's body is and 250-270 is going to beat 200-210 every time. I did not see it as targeting, but I'm not an official and also a fan of the guilty party, so maybe my thought process is flawed.
And that's what I'm saying, how else do you hit a guy that is 6'6? His head snapped back, but he was hit more in the chest/neck area if I remember correctly. To me it's no different than a few hits Trevor Lawrence took when he is 6'6, tucked his head and a guy that's 5'10 gets called for targeting cause he hit Lawrence in the head after he tucked. It's just impossible. Why even wear a helmet anymore if you can't use it, responsibly. Want to cut it out, take helmets away from them and play rugby. Use your hands and you get dislocated fingers.
I guess I was always told to bury my face in a guys chest, back straight, and thrust into them while taking them down. Looks like what happened here for the most part. He does hit his face mask that is sticking out inches from his face and it caused his head to move. Whatever, doesn't matter in the end, but I still think it was a bad call and a lot of others see it both ways as well. We won, so no need to beat a dead horse.
