Falcons vs. Buccaneers missed UNR?

Was this hit on Mike Evans a missed call?

Great catch btw.

Does anybody think the NFL will introduce ejections for TGT going forward as the concern for concussion injuries increase?

Only if the owners perceive this to be a problem.  :sTiR:

Seems like it was really just a hit to the chest, albeit with the crown. They don't really need to have the same strictness as NCAA, since they have the backup of post-game review and fine. Wouldn't surprise me a bit to hear that this hit cost him $10k or so.

Can't really speak to NFL, or even college (though I would guess this would draw a flag more often than not at the college level). For NFHS, that should be a flag for UNR against a defenseless player, regardless of the helmet contact. The replay from the downfield angle looks like targeting, too.
