Well, Clark won't be playing in the Super Bowl once Goodell gets a hold of him. Blatant helmet-to-helmet, and he's certainly lookin at McGahee's shoe during the hit.

It's probably clear to everyone that I am no Steelers fan. But I thought he led with his shoulder and those guys kind of just happened to hit helmets. I didn't necessarily think it was dirty.

As a side note, the Steelers really need Clark for the Superbowl. IMO without him they could really have problems keeping Fitzgerald in check.

Congrats Steeler fans! Sounds like a real headknocker in Pittsburgh...couldn't hear much on AM radio between home and Norfolk.

I thought, like Simms said, helmet 2 helmet penalties are reserved for unprotected receivers and QBs. Once the offensive player has possession of the ball and can protect himself H2H is kind of out the window. To be fair, McGahee was putting his head down as well when Clark was about to make the hit.

Yea...as brutal as that hit was, it was far from "dirty" as it looked like he made an effort to lead with his shoulder and McGahee lowering his head just as Clark did contributed to the helmet to helmet contact. I'd be surprised if he got fined for this.

Obviously I wish the best for McGahee but that was not a "dirty hit." There should be no fine at all for that.
