-B- The NFL has issued Ryan Clark a $40,000 fine for his helmet-to-helmet hit against the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday. Ed Bouchette reports that Clark is angry about the fine. Ben Roethlisberger also was upset, calling for the NFLPA to "do something" about the rash of fines. Here's the hit on Ed Dickson that is in question:[youtube]SlYZR1N6ya4[/youtube]Watching it live, I thought it was a good hit, but Clark did lead with the crown of his helmet and made direct helmet-to-helmet contact with the receiver.

The whole game was a mess, and the fact that we didn’t have a game plan that could move the ball coming right out of the gate meant that our coaches were...
Pittsburgh Steelers safety Ryan Clark is angry about being fined $40,000 for an illegal hit against Baltimore's Ed Dickson. Clark was flagged 15 yards for unnecessary roughness Sunday night late in the first half of Baltimore's 23-20 win for launching himself into Dickson just after the ball glanced off Dickson's hands.
The Sporting News network recently did a poll of 111 players from 31 teams and asked them which NFL coach they most would like to play for. The polled players were not allowed to vote for their own head coach according to the staff report. It is not surprising that Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin finished at the top of the list as he tied with Jets head coach Rex Ryan. Both Tomlin...
