  • LaRon Landry could face a fine for hit on Cruz

    http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap100...content_stream

    Safety LaRon Landry announced his presence as a member of the New York Jets' defense Saturday night with a vicious hit on New York Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz.

    Rex Ryan is truly the perfect coach to lead the New York Jets to a Super Bowl title. Adam Schein explains why. More ...

    We suspect the NFL will announce its presence with a fine for Landry next week. Landry appeared to lead with his helmet, not his shoulder. He wound up hitting Cruz in the chin. It was a massive hit, but Cruz jumped up quickly to signal first down and show he was doing well. Read More...

    LaRon Landry has not played a full season yet. That's why Redskins parted ways with him. Just another odd piece to this Jets Team which is shaping up into a disaster. Takes more than a dirty hit to put the Cruz Man down,

      I do not really think it was dirty. It was an old school hard hit. I bet he is wondering where is the fine on jacobs for that hit.
      Just remember Kevin Love makes more money then OBJ, and OBJ also dunks better.

        Unless my eyes deceive me, he played -- and started -- 47 of his first 48 games. http://www.nfl.com/player/laronlandry/2495658/profile

                Thanks for clarification. So basically he has not been healthy for the past couple of years

                  Yup, past two years he's missed about half of each season.

                  He didn't look to gimpy, but I want to see how he'll hold up.

                    A hit doesn't have to be "dirty" to merit a fine or a flag. "Dirty" implies intent and Landry's helmet hit Cruz's facemask in the area of the chin. That's a foul.

                        Jacobs hit him with his shoulder, not his helmet...

                          From my view that was a good, clean football hit. I didn't see any helmet to helmet contact and his intent was to separate him from the ball.

                          I think the NFL just wants to eliminate hard hits in general.

                            I agree RF, that's where and how he hit him. That is also a very tough call to make when the ball carrier naturally makes himself smaller ahead of the hit. Awefully tough to redirect your hit once you've committed. We'll have to deal with this over the coming years as the league continues to craft rules to protect the players. We might as well get ysed to it. It is going to cut both ways.
                            No one remembers who came in second.

                              I actually had more problem with the hit that took out his legs at the same time Landry hit him...not illegal but good chance of losing a knee that way...
