Cowboys Owner Believes League Will Look At Golden Tate’s Hit On Sean Lee
Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said he believes the NFL will take a look
at a hit on Cowboys linebacker Sean Lee from Seattle receiver Golden Tate for
possible supplementary discipline.
Lee was chasing Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson on a scramble, when Tate was able to get a blindside angle on him and crush him. The play was not penalized, but the league has been tough on unnecessary violence, and Jones said he believes Tate led with his helmet in hitting Lee in the chest.
“We saw the same thing you saw, the head hit,’’ Jones said. “That’s certainly
something that we expect penalties and fines about, but they didn’t see the
helmet hit or they would have called it.’’
Tate said he didn’t think that the play was a penalty.
“I knew that I didn’t hit him in his helmet,’’ Tate said. “I knew that I hit him
somewhere in his mid-section, but the rules change so much that you don’t really
know if it’s a rule this year or not. I’m happy that it wasn’t (a penalty).’’
Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said he asked officials about the play.
“I thought he was a defenseless player who was hit,’’ Garrett said. “That is
something the league is trying to guard against, and is a pretty good example of
what that was.’’

eh, he actually stayed in front of him instead of blind-siding him. Lee should have kept his eyes open for a front block. i don't have a problem with how tate approached him.
now, having said that, i don't like the fact that tate launched his helmet up into the chin of lee and it was violent enough that the league will take a look at it.

it was a blind side hit. Funny he drew comparisons to hines ward coming out of ND because that was a ward hit all the way.
It was cheap, and you really cant lead with the crown of your helmet like that

Tate did three things that are supposed to be illegal in today's NFL.
1. He hit him with the top of the helmet.
2. He left his feet.
3. He peeled back to hit him.
But, what do you expect when you have Stevie Wonder as a ref?
