    Slauson fined $10,000 for block on Cushing - Slauson will appeal.

    Adam Schefter ‏@AdamSchefter
    Jets G Matt Slauson appealing the $10,000 fine the league hit him and @JayGlazer reported on.


    Manish Mehta ‏@MMehtaNYDN
    Matt Slauson's block on Cushing is being viewed as "an illegal peel back block" #nyj


    Rich Cimini ‏@RichCimini
    Slauson fined $10K for block on Cushing, according to FoxSports. Slauson told me earlier, "My coaches told me it was clean block." #Jets

    $10k makes me think they didn't want to fine him but b.c it managed to become a story b.c it was a Jet they had to do something.

    Or it could just be the standard outlined in the CBA.

    I wonder what Kubiak and Shanahan are going to do when the league outlaws cut blocking in a few years?

    Got examples? I'm not being wise. I'm just asking if there are example plays. Some chops are legal and some aren't. Do you have examples of ones they were doing that are illegal? I haven't seen any but someone must have this game on tape.

    It looked like a pretty cheap shot to me, and ended a guys season.

    It's called the "Vince Wilfork" clause.

    If it smells dirty, it's dirty.

    What Jets player was injured for the season by the Texans "blocking infractions"?

    So when a guy gets hurt as the result of a clean, legal play the NFL reserves the right to take a man's money?

    Mark Sclereth brought this up on NFL Live.
    He played for the Broncos & knows this blocking technique used by Shanahan & now Kubiak.
    It was funny how he said, "Listen, the Texans lost their middle linebacker for the season & not one complaint was made by the Texans, their entire philosophy of running the ball is based on CUT BLOCKS!"
    Outlaw cutblocks & they can't even run their offense!

    I'd like to see how Kenrick Ellis was injured?
    You could tell our young guys up front were not comfortable when on each snap, the Texans Oline was just going low around their shins.
    This blocking technique is both physical & a mental game with the guys up front.
    Teams have been biatching about this for years regarding the Broncos.

    It is not illegal to cut a guy, that is not the point, you cant cut a guy when he is engaged with another member of you team, Think of it more along the lines of a 3rd man in. You can double team a guy high and low below his knees.

    Teams have *****ed about it for years, but that is the way the rule is. Everytime a qb blocks on the backside he cuts. those sub 200lb rb cut the blitzing LB all the time. You can't take cutting out of the game.

    Sure you can. Why not? Simply prohibit blocks below the waist.

    Leave it to a Pats fan to say something as illogical an assinine as this.

    Its funny that a team that consistently cuts blocks is complaining that a player of theirs (who was already suspsended by the league for cheating) was hurt by a Jet player. I have zero sympathy for Houston or Cushing.
