Freeman Fined $5,000 For Hit On Grimes

Written by Wolf

After Josh Freeman threw an interception at the end of the game against Atlanta, he took his anger out on the cornerback and was called for a late hit out of bounds when he tackled Brent Grimes along the sideline. Apparently the NFL didn’t like it and fined the second-year quarterback on Thursday.
The NFL wants Josh Freeman to be more careful -- about his tackling.

The league fined Freeman $5,000 for his hit out of bounds on Falcons CB Brent Grimes.

    PewterReport.com's Take: Pewter Report does not agree with the NFL’s decision to fine Freeman. It was a bang-bang play near the sidelines and we think the officials just threw the flag because of the way Grimes flew through the air after the hit. Freeman is listed at 6-foot-6, 248-pounds, whereas Grimes checks in at 5-foot-10 and 181 pounds. Of course he is going to go flying if Freeman puts a big hit on him. Freeman was the last person standing between Grimes and the end zone, and was just trying to make the tackle. If Freeman lets up near the end of the play, how does he know that Grimes won’t try to cut back on him? He didn’t, which is why he went after Grimes the way he did. It isn’t a huge fine, but it is still enough to probably tick off Freeman a bit, and in our opinion he doesn’t deserve it.

    I hate to say it but Sabby would have made that hit on Meems. He was good on Special Teams, he just sucked as a safety. Just look at the previous games with Sabby on Kickoff.

    they obviously didnt have the proper angle... whatever it still dosesnt explain why every week we wait till the 2 minute warning,to start playing like we should be doing for the first 55 minutes!!!! perhaps some one could also explain to the coachs and players about timeouts,not squandered,we need them at the end ,we never have enough of those either.Also the running time clock,keeps on ticking,we seem to forget about that as well!!!!!!maybe you could ask why this problem that has plauged us all season,Wolf has not been resolved? pointing out that with all the technology,we forgot there is a stop watch?????Wolf you could write a piece on alternative offensive formations,like the no-huddle?it should be explained you dont actually need the officials to remind the team,they can use it for the first 50 minutes,with great success,at least other seasoned coachs and QBS are aware of it !!!!Wolf how about a real west-coast O or wildcat with josh having a greater sense of the dynamics of the defenses not having time to rotate thier packages and coverage,instead of keeping them off balance allowing us to then control the tempo and the gameplan that we practice and study for all week.Wolf you seem that you are pragmatic as well as diplomatic and could do a face to face,about the reasoning of waiting or is it the lack ,the self evidence of a basic principle of the play calling O and simple execution that type of fast fast ball control and scoring self confidence that these kids are capeable of and dont even realize Anyway ill be wating li!!!!H.I.F.

    I FIND IT INTERESTING THE NFL WILL FINE FREEMAN FOR A OUT OF BOUNDS HIT, BUT ATLANTA HAD THE SAME PENALTY. THEY HIT FREEMAN OUT OF BOUNDS, BUT THE BELOVED FALCONS CAN'T BE FINED. WE ALL KNOW THE BALL HIT THE GROUND AND WAS NOT CAUGHT, BUT LOVE FREEMAN FOR GOING AFTER IT. WOULD JUST LIKE TO SEE SOME CONSISTENCY IN THE NFL. FINE FREEMAN, YOU HAVE TO FINE ATLANTA ALSO.

    The ball hit the ground but it wasn't a good view of the replay to over turn the call. It didn't matter anyway. Why in the hell is Stovall on this team? What does he do anyway?

    I also agree that under the current rules that should not have been an interception. The hit was a great football moment. "You pick me with that sh**, and I'm gonna lay you out." Not a subject for a coach to to want to have to coach, but the kind of moment every coach can smile about. The NFL needs to wake up and realize that people believe in the game of football. The NFL is squeezing that from the sport until all that's left is players that have to play with a regulator set at 75%.

    If Stovall would have hit Meems like that we wouldn't have been throwing the ball at the end of the game. That was no interception, the ball hit the ground. Great hit Josh.

    The ball clearly hit the ground. As for the 5,000 dollar fine, worth every penny.

    bucworld, so agree with you.
  • avatar


    Stovall needs to take lessons from Freeman.
  • avatar


    Bucfan x agree and I think Stovall will be lucy to survive the season.
  • avatar


    I still think the ball hit the ground, but it's water under the bridge. Bogus to fine Freeman, PR's take is exactly right.
  • avatar


    Too bad the hit wasn't on the "both review person on that so called interception".
  • avatar

    WOW, why didn't the nfl fined the dude who had a helmet to helmet hit on caddilac?
  • avatar

    LOL I never thought I would see the day a QB was fined for a hard hit. That made my day. Josh Freeman is such a BAMF.
  • avatar

    LOL screw the NFL. This is getting ridiculous. Might as well call it the WNFL.
