Definitely well deserved. It was just the kind of hit the league is trying to do away with.

I can understand why, tactically, such a hit woudl be done.

Doesn't excuse it by any means (hence the fine), but it makes sense as to why he did it.

This hit is why they need to start suspending guys. He launched into the head of a receiver.
