With 15 seconds remaining in the second quarterwomens Dante Fowler Jr Jersey, Dolphins quarterback Jay Cutler dropped back and launched a pass intended for DeVante Parker.

The Dolphins clearly took umbrage to the hit on Parker,Authentic Cam Robinson Jersey, and as a resultAuthentic Dawuane Smoot Jersey a melee ensued as both teams entered the tunnel on their way to the locker room at halftime.
Parker was in no position to see where the hit was coming from as his back was turned to Addae,womens Dawuane Smoot Jersey, which beckons the question, was Addae’s hit on Parker dirty?
Well … it depends on who you ask.womens Dede Westbrook Jersey,
The NFL has a concussion problem on its handsAuthentic Dede Westbrook Jersey, and with an uptick in CTE cases of former players the NFL has forced players to adjust their strike zone. Players are encouraged now more than ever to go low when making tackles in an effort to avoid making contact with a player’s head; but how low is too low,Authentic Blake Bortles Jersey and is it appropriate to take a player’s legs out when they can’t see you?
Making contact with a player right between the numbers was widely accepted prior to the NFL perennially instructing defenders to lower their strike zone. These days many defenders feel they’re being forced to make a decision between being fined for a helmet-to-helmet, hit or taking out a players’ leg.Authentic A. J. Cann Jersey
“That used to be the old way to think – run through the numbers,” Dolphins defensive back Michael Thomas said. “Now, the way the rules are changing, run through a guy and try to jar him loose from the ball, fines are going out and they’re going in grown men’s pockets.womens A. J. Cann Jersey,
“They constantly tell you lower your target as well. … Obviously I don’t want to see DeVante [Parker] go down. Could the guy have stayed up and still made the tackle, but at the same time, still got him out of bounds? I don’t know. As a defensive back – you just try to play full speed and go make a play, when those fines come – you feel it.”Authentic Dante Fowler Jr Jersey,
Dolphins cornerback Bobby McCain,womens Brandon Allen Jersey, womens T.J. Yeldon Jersey is known as a scrappy competitor, and he also believes that defensive backs are between a rock and a hard place when making a hit on a receiver with his back turned.
“As a DB,” McCain said. “Unfortunately – sometimes it may be low>womens Leonard Fournette Jersey,' it may be high; you never know. But in this game,womens Cam Robinson Jerseyyou’re just trying to get the guy down, you have to find a spot to hit them now. He [Jahleel Addae] went low. … I can’t speak on it; I don’t know what they teach over there. They may teach it differently than we do.”
While Dolphins players on the defensive side of the football could somewhat empathize with Addae’s position, one Dolphins’ pass catcher was nowhere near as understanding.Authentic Brandon Allen Jersey,
“It’s a cheap shot – flat out,” said Dolphins tight end MarQueis Gray. “… You’re a pro, he knew what he was doing. At the same time, which led into the locker room. For him to be a pro and do something like that, that’s why he got the reaction he did from our sideline, you know how to tackle,womens Blake Bortles Jersey, he knew what he was doing. And I felt like it was very childish and it was a cheap shot by him.
“He could’ve hit him on his back, but it was a cheap shot, his shoulders or even higher on his thigh if you want to go lower, 'Authentic T.J. Yeldon Jersey,'clear cheap shot.”
