Nelson Fined for leading with helmet

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.

    • Question. Who really gives a rats behind what Belichick does?  He has no ethnics when it comes to the players nor the rules. 
    • Question. Do u think Bellichek would ever pay Leonard or Nelson the kind of money they r going to ask for based on the postion they currently play? I doubt it. Thats kind of the problem u have when u draft Nelson 6th overall. He becomes a pancake machine and a cult hero. U r kind of stuck with having to pay him. Thats the problem with drafting a guard at #6. I dont mind paying huge money for a DE on his 2nd contract. I am hesitant about paying a guard LT money. Same with Leonard. When he is hurt, I think Walker has filled in admirably. He is going to want probably 20 million. I get hammered, but I pull a Bill and see what there value is. This team has no dynamic skill players.
    • If that is true. Then move him to left tackle and draft a guard next year. Oh brother.
    • I won't be upset if the Colts cut him after this year or dont reward him with a new contract. If the colts keep him i wont be surprised  but not thrilled either the guys hardly on the field. 
    • Agree with that . I don't want to start blaming coaches for losses but this staff is average and no way they were going to devise a game plan to stop the Tenn run game with the injuries to the defense. Compare that to how Baltimore held up for 3/4's of the game while being short handed the week before. They wore down and lost in the end but not for a bad placement on 3rd down late in the 4th , they would have won that game.
