    Thomas fined $7,500

    Not sure if this was posted. NFL Network just reported Thomas fined $7,500 for the Coles hit, he will appeal.

    That's good news, that was a cheap shot.

    Shame on the ESPN crew for highlighting what a great hit Thomas put on Coles (and showing it so many times to emphasize what a hard hitter Thomas is) without even hinting that it was an illegal hit.

    That night's broadcast was the worst job of announcing I have seen in a long time.

    They posted it yesterday afternoon, it should have been $15,000 as flagrant a helmet to helmet as that was.

    Zach Thomas fined $7,500 for hit on Jets' Laveranues Coles

    DAVIE Dolphins Pro Bowl linebacker Zach Thomas was fined $7,500 by the NFL for his punishing hit on Jets receiver Laveranues Coles in the second quarter of Monday night's 13-10 loss.

    The Jets sent the tape of the hit to the league, claiming it was a helmet-to-helmet blow. Coles dropped the ball and then missed a few series before returning.

    "I have more respect for that guy than any player around,'' Thomas said. "So I'm not going to take a cheap shot. But when I'm running full speed, how can you slow yourself down?''

    Thomas said he would appeal the fine.
