I'm not really a Bears fan, but I'm sure tired of the type of flagrant shot that took Cutler out of the game. Guy delivers an illegal blow to the head, gets the opposing starting QB out of the game, and it's only a 15 yard penalty.
The NHL is doing a better job or penalizing guys, but trying to balance a 25 game suspension against a guy possibly having mush for brains by the time he's 50 is pretty dicey stuff.
Boxers and MMA fighters sign up for head shots, but not football and hockey players. Some kind of elevated sanction is needed.
I'd like to see "tit for tat plus" for head shots in football: you are OUT until the week *after* the guy you injured comes back.
And here's the part of my rule that would be difficult to swallow, but it would make players THINK: if the guy you injured doesn't ever come back, too bad for you: you're ALL DONE.
Put this in, and watch how few head shots you see all season long.
