Madieu Williams, Taylor Mays, And Rahim Moore All Fined $21,000 - Playing safety in the NFL can get expensive if you can’t learn to avoid collisions with opposing players’ heads, and three NFL safeties learned that the hard way on Friday. Redskins S Madieu Williams, Bengals S Taylor Mays and Broncos S Rahim Moore have all been fined $21,000 for hits to opposing players’ helmets in Week One. For Williams, it was a helmet-to-helmet hit on Saints tight end Jimmy Graham late in the Redskins’ win at New Orleans. For Mays, it was a helmet-to-helmet hit on Ravens tight end Ed Dickson on Monday night. And for Moore, it was unnecessarily striking Steelers receiver Emmanuel Sanders in the head and neck area on Sunday night. The $21,000 fines are the standard amount for the 2012 season for hits to the head or neck area of a defenseless receiver. That represents a 5 percent increase in the fines over last year, when $20,000 was the norm, as permitted by the Collective Bargaining Agreement.  Click here! to Read More...

Denver Broncos at Atlanta Falcons: Week 2 NFL Pick

Denver Broncos (1-0) at Atlanta Falcons (1-0) If it wasn’t for Green Bay/Chicago, this would be the game of the week. Actually, scratch that, Green Bay/Chicago was an incredibly ugly game that should have been the game of the week, but wasn’t because teams only had 3 days to prepare and played much worse than they normally do.
