Quote:
Two years into his pro career, Ryan Taylor has made a living with his aggressive style of play. That's why the tight end is a core special teams player on the Green Bay Packers.

But perhaps the best block by Taylor to date now has cost him. Taylor was fined $21,000 by the NFL for "an illegal blindside block" on Arizona's Rashad Johnson in the Packers' 31-17 win Nov. 4.

While it was a crushing collision, Taylor's block appeared clean; no flag was thrown. As the Packers' Randall Cobb turned up the right sideline on a 28-yard punt return, Johnson had a decent angle for the tackle. But he didn't see Taylor. The 2011 seventh-round pick peeled back to lay out Johnson, a play that drew a roar from the Lambeau Field crowd.

I remember that hit, and while not penalized, I figured he would get fined. It was a blind side block and he did hit him in the head. And it was a good block I hope he makes in the future.

Hopefully the rest of the team digs deep and pays this fine for him.

He hit him from the pretty much the same angle that Duane Brown (who didn't get fined) hit DJ Smith. The NFL seems really inconsistent to me on these fines sometimes.

Hit isnt' the same. DJ Smith was watching Brown. And he didn't at the head like Taylor did.

Yeah instead he took his knee out. Yes, the new agenda is the head, but I still find little use for chopping the knees out. Hence why I really think the NFL is more motivated by the wallet and the continuance of the game than player safety on these fines for hits.

Otherwise, cut or reach blocks at the knees should be out of the game already.

On the Taylor Block.. by the letter of the law, it is legal, should it be? Debatable and hard to really play it if you are a player playing is space. Much like the defenseless receiver calls, some are being over protective. As a player, it is somewhat hard to specifically judge where a player is going to be and his body position when they are moving with momentum. It was a boarder line physical block.. could go either way. As a player, I would error on the side of popping him and debating it later. I would definitely appeal it... it applies the pressure back to the league on consistency and adjusting the rules back in line with their wallet protecting "vision".

I think when there's enough will and aggression, there's no shortage of talent either.

It was a legal block. The defender was right there on the play, and SHOULD be watching for blockers. Was that Taylor's fault that he wasn't? No block, and he makes the tackle.
Just another B.S. move by the NFL.
I hope some of the Packer millionaires pay it off for him.

Wow, from that angle it's horsecrap. Why don't they just put headlights on the front of everyone's jerseys that let out blinding light in a 120 degree angle. If you're not blinded by the light, you can't hit him!

I just watched it again, in HD (I love that stuff) and the helmets did collide, but Ryan Taylor didn't lead with his helmet at all. I'm not sure if that'll play into it or not.

I don't like the rule, but by rule, it is ILLEGAL. It is the same defenseless rule.

Note that, being an offensive player, they did not flag him. After all dude might score and give the league a great highlight reel!

But they'll turn around and fine him after the fact.

In no way am I saying you're wrong, because point blank I don't know all the rules... BUT..
There is a rule against hitting a guy with your shoulder pad into the front side of his shoulder pad? WTF?

Which rule are you speaking of? This block or the cut?

This does not apply to clipping nor a crackback. So...

For this rule, as long as the blocker has both hands in the front or at the side of the player, it is not a penalty. See Highlight... and then look at the block in the attached photos.. both of Taylor's arms are either in front or on the side of the defender. It is a legal block.

But the next post, lets look at the defenseless or "blindside" block definitions in 2012.
