As expected, receiver Anquan Boldin was officially ruled out of Sunday’s game against the Dallas Cowboys. Normally I’d say it that’s a tough loss in a big game. Although I’d love to see ‘Q’ out there on the field, I’m liking what I am seeing from his replacement Steve Breaston. This is a great opportunity for the country to see Breaston do his thing.
Also on Friday, safety Adrian Wilson was fined $25,000 for his hit on Buffalo quarterback Trent Edwards. He was warned by the NFL one more hit like that and he will be suspended one game and a $50,000 fine. That’s just ridiculous. The hit was legal. There was no penalty called on Wilson in the game. I’m tired of plays that don’t garner a flag in game play, get fined later on. I see it all the time. Honestly, I don’t even think the hit on Boldin in the Jets game should have drawn a fine. These guys aren’t going in with the intention to seriously injure other players. How else can you coach these guys to play? I wish I had the answer. Apparently the No Fun League knows. Here comes flag football!
