Jaron Brown hit costs Falcons safety

Posted by Darren Urban on December 4, 2014 – 4:15 pm

In the locker room after the loss to the Falcons, wide receiver Jaron Brown shrugged off the shot he took from Falcons safety William Moore late in the game — a play in which Brown held on to the 23-yard pass and jumped right back up after he was leveled.

“Wasn’t no big hit,” Brown said.

It did come with a big fine, though. While no penalty flag was thrown on the play (and coach Bruce Arians angrily asked the officials about that at the time) Moore was fined $22,050 by the league for the play. The NFL said he struck Brown with the crown of his helmet. Moore wasn’t happy about that turn of events either.

“I’m proud of myself because I didn’t get a flag on that play,” Moore told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “That was more important to me. I’ve been working on playing within the rules and that’s what I’m proud about; I didn’t cost the team 15 yards. That was huge.”

Moore is appealing the fine.

“I watched it a few times and I’m trying to play within the rules,” Moore said. “I pride myself in trying to be a class act and play the game how it’s supposed to be played. I still try to play hard-nosed. I don’t know what to do if they are going to fine us for everything that we do. Is it really about the players is what I have to ask?”

Maybe it wasn’t too big a hit for Brown. He did make another two catches for 16 more yards after the blow.

    “Wasn’t no big hit” Brown said…..I love that!

    Looking at the picture….he has THREE defenders right on him. Why didn’t we throw to whoever was obviously wide open on that play???

    RE: Brown hit

    Brown was hit after he ran the ball, yards after he made the catch. Defenders converged.

    I see the quote from Fitz about how sitting out “kills you.”

    Yeah, Larry, we know what ya mean. Because it’s been killing us, too!

    The last 2 weeks have given us a glance of what the Cardinals look like without #11. And ya know what? That is enough for me! I heard so much chatter leading up to the season about how the expected emergence of Floyd as the top WR AND Fitz’s age AND his contract # for next year were all likely to result in the end of the Larry Fitzgerald era in Arizona.

    Well….it hasn’t exactly played out the way many thought it would. Floyd has regressed HORRIBLY and while the Brown Brothers look like promising kids, they do not look ready to take over as FT starters. We have a WR corps right now that looks great with Fitz as part of it. But take Fitz out of that picture….and the picture changes dramatically.

    Hey Billy Moore…Your post-game commentary is laughable. The Refs simply missed the call; how much time do you think the NFL had to take to see the hit…about 10 seconds? And be aware your NFLPA saw the review also…and had to agree….

    3-1….4-0….2-2….?-?…… Going back to pre-season, I posted that from a coaching point of view, it is good to split the season into quarters, and try to win each quarter. WE HAVE NOT LOST ONE YET…..These are the numbers so far as we all know.

    At 9-3, we are in good position if we can go at least 2-2 this quarter to win the division. We have all kinds of tie breakers that will take care of some things later…not like last year.!

    I would be nice for the 49ers to win a damn game in Seattle.!! And the Eagles need to beat Seattle this Sunday in Philly. We defeat KC..&..Seattle loses to the Eagles. That is 2 games…!!! Cards have Seattle AT HOME later too.!!! ((A Must win with our ferocious home crowd…another 2 games))

    And I know the Rams will not lay down…they have Seattle too. ((Yeah, I know, us too)) 49ers have to win out to survive…no way that happens…get out the fork…Kaep is a mess lately…

    Green Bay has a cake schedule, ((12-13 wins)) so we cannot worry about them yet.
    New Orleans looks to finish at 7-9 or 8-8 to win their division. Atlanta probably 6-10 or 7-9 will fizzle…

    I am optimistic CARDS FANS… If the men execute fairly well, we can do this….I can see a road game in January for us…..Be well…

    With Dallas winning on Thursday evening, Philly will be highly motivated. If Detroit can get it in gear, there is a reasonable scenario that Seattle and the 49ers will be looking through the window…. That would be soooooo sweet…..

    In these last two away games, there were a lot more homer calls and homer-non-calls against the Cards.

    There is no need to panic over the last two losses, as its a long season and its virtually impossible to play them all perfectly. And even when you do, a loss in the playoffs ending a long winning streak AND your season is really the worst than any losses before the playoffs (see Patriots).

    its about time that coach B.A. is on the hot sit maybe we get something done in the off seasons.

    Gotta admit I was scared when I saw that hit, relieved when he bounced up and no fumble. He’s dropped only that TD that I can recall, he pressed on that play and BA hugged him… he should be around a longtemp. Really like his skill, toughness. Brown Brothers Harriman can protect that ball too …

    As to the Moore comment, what would it be like if I’m more concerned about 15 yards than $22K? I’m in the wrong business.

    Jaron Brown looked good sunday! I hope this kid is a Cardinal for a LONG time!

    louis –

    We’re putting BA on the hot seat already??? Really? C’mon, man. This team had 10 wins last year, probably ( HOPEFUULY ) will have 10 or more this year as well. And you want to put the coach on the hot seat??? Jeez, man, how many wins would he have to have to be safe from you???

    I just don’t see Seattle “looking through the window.” They seem to be hitting their stride at just the right time them, the wrong time for the rest of the NFC. I think Seattle is getting in. And I hate to say it but they might just get in as a division winner if THEY keep winning and the Cardinals don’t get it together. Like, NOW.

    The Eagles might do us a favor on Sunday by beating Seattle. I hope they do. But it accomplshes nothing if the Cardinals don’t win themselves on Sunday.

    That game – Philly / Seattle – almost seems like a no-win situation for Cards fans. Because there is a down-side to EITHER team winning this week. BUT again, none of that matters if the Cardinals are not winning THEIR games. The loss to Atlanta last weekend was a killer. I think THAT loss is what truly opened the door for Seattle and, well….now we face the real possibility of giving up the division.

    I don’t see Seattle going away. San Fran, yes. Seattle, NO.

    Hey ScottH – – You are parroting most of what I wrote. There are ups and downs to the games this weekend. So we agree on most of the standings as of now. Bottom line, we need to take out Seattle at home. And as I also wrote, I see a roady in January, ‘cuz Green Bay is in bloom… & Eagles gotta beat Seattle…. I usually avoid prognostications this early, but it is fun and worrisome to look at the MATH, huh? Be well…

    we have lost this game already with out a running back i am very frustrated with the coaching staff and the front office. this is just like the old cards in the 70-80-90-2000 it will take us another 50 years to make the superbowl if we are lucky.

    You be well, too, man! Do you have anything to cheer Louis up? I’m a little worried about that guy right now…

    Yes, ultimately, it is better that the Eagles beat Seattle. That keeps Seattle behind us, no matter what, for at least another week. And we DO have that win against Philly in hand if it comes down to a tie-breaker with them.

    As always, none of it matters if the Cardinals don’t win Sunday. They lose Sunday…they could literally slide right out of the playoffs altogether. Consider the horror of that for a moment….to have regular season wins against the Lions AND Eagles AND Cowboys only to watch all of them make the playoffs while the Cardinals do not.

    Ok, sorry ’bout that, shake it off.

    Pretty solid win for Dallas last night. I wasn’t even gonna bother trying to count on the Bears. They are a mess. And who can figure the Cowboys out right now??? They look pathetic AT HOME against Philly in a game that means the division lead for them, then they can go TO Chicago on a frigid night and turn it loose on the Bears. It would totally suit them to be a wildcard team because that’s what they are – a wildcard. They can beat anyone in the league one week, look like they would lose to the Raiders the next.

    ScottH – – louis – – – I have concerns as well with specific things, but remaining optimistic is good for mental health. I will always try to support the individuals on the team, but there are some who earn serious scrutiny. If we do not defeat KC at home, many fans as well as I will have some interesting feedback. If we do win, there will still be questions, but it will feel better, especially if Seattle LOSES..!!
