Nelson Fined for leading with helmet


Recommended Posts

The bank account of Quenton Nelson took a hit just like Barry Church did.

Indianapolis Colts’ talented offensive lineman was fined nearly $27,000 for the pancake block on the Jacksonville Jaguar safety.

 

The NFL handed out the fine to Nelson due to the fact he led with his helmet during the pancake block, resulting in Church to fly backwards and land on his back.

Nelson is becoming known for his pancake blocks, even a guy he blocks for is starting to notice it on film during the ensuing week.

“Actually, it’s very crazy,” Colts running back Nyheim Hines said about Nelson. “A guy that violent – I’ve never seen it, actually. I mean, obviously I know he’s violent, but I’m running the ball or whatever, and then I turn on the film and he’s killing people. Like early in the game (against the Jaguars), he pulled around and just obliterated somebody.”

If Nelson is dealing pancake blocks to players like Church, and it leads the Colts to an AFC South or Wildcard berth, then I’m willing to start a gofundme each week

It was definitely leading with the helmet, they probably used the facemask shaped bruise on Church's chest as evidence.

 

But good for him and like @Lucky Colts Fan stated/// worth every penny.

 

I guarantee the next time the Colts and Jags play, Church will not be running up there to support the run.  He will take a different angle to try to avoid Big Q.

I wonder if that play wasn't edited and circulated all over the internet, does Nelson still receive a fine, i bet the NFL doesn't even take a second look ..

 

I bet you are right.  Sometimes drawing attention to yourself isn't a good thing.  Not saying Nelson did, but the Colts org did.

He definitely lowered his helmet.  That said, when you start fining offensive linemen in the name of player safety, when they literally smack helmets every play, that's bush league.  I would think the Colts could cover this fine since their doctored footage of the play pulled so much attention towards it.

Where can we donate to it? That wasn't leading with a helmet. What a joke

 

Come on man.  I know we see things through Colts Blue tinted glasses, but that was the clinical definition of leading with the helmet.

Then other O.Lineman need to start getting fined then because it happens every game in all games where at times they lead with their helmet. This is a dumb fine, sorry. I have never seen an O.Lineman get fined for this and technically the league could do it too many other O.Lineman is my point. To me this has nothing to do with being a Colts fan, had this been a Pats O.Lineman I would be saying the same thing. Pick out any game this week and if you go over every play you will find this happens quite a bit by O.Lineman.

I'm still waiting for the Sony Michele fine for his lowering of the helmet hit on Geathers

 

That's the one I thought about right away.  Heck he should just show a montage of the different lowering of the helmet hits that have not been fined.  It probably wouldn't help, but it would be nice if the NFL wasn't so inconsistent.

This is true. But how many of those blocks have a viral video making it so easy to identify the penalty? Sure, these types of blocks occur all of the time. Nelson's block was so brutal that it was replayed over and over again, making it easy to identify the penalty.

Still doesn't make the fine right IMO. This weekend I should go back over every game and Post a block by an O.Lineman on YouTube or Twitter that is similar to what Nelson did, there will be at least one out of 16 games. Lets see if that Lineman gets fined. People could do this every week actually. Not only that, Lineman lead or lower their helmet on several plays. If REFS start giving Penalties out for O.Lineman using their helmet in any way, the game would last 4 hours and be a Penalty crap fest of a game. This fine is silly and I will leave it at that.

    • No one knows. The writer isn't necessarily wrong, the last time anyone saw Wentz, he was shaky mentally and a mess football-wise. Hurts wasn't any great shakes yet he was better than Wentz. We know the potential Carson has but if the national media isn't lapping it up, that's not a bad thing.    We all hope Frank Reich can unleash a beast who performs at levels even better than 2017 but fact is, we don't know. Even Chris Ballard said same, just as he did about Eason, we won't know what we have until the bullets start flying.
    • Good lord. I simply posted an article from rotoworld. If you don’t like it then let them know you disagree with the people who are usually correct with the info they receive. I wasn’t aware I would be told I was wrong for posting an article from a highly reputable site. You seriously need to relax. 
    • Eh maybe but I think it was more of let’s see how the draft shakes out and who is cut yet to make room to sign the rookies they picked. There’s still teams that have to cut some players just to get under the cap once the rookies sign. 
    • Dude I agree, but our base kinda concept is T2 with their personnel I think.  They play a variety of zones and trade off a lot.  They get lost in the secondary.  It’s actually complex as hell.   It’s possible Rock and Blackmon are gonna click as they learn the system, but it’s also possible IMO they continue to play replacement level foot ball.  Rock has issues but on many of his plays he gets NO help from the safeties. they want these guys to play downhill like T2, but they have to show they can cover first.  It might work and be exciting as hell.                       I am in lockstep with the Walker thing.  That’s why you never seem to know wth this team is trying to do well with SCHEME AND PERSONNEL.   sorry for yelling.  I don’t think our ideas about this team are really very different.     Franks a pretty good coach man.
    • Wentz wasn't my favourite option when we got him but watching some of his games from his rookie and 2nd year the guy has magic, can't wait.
