That's exactly the way I saw the hit happen too!

Date: Thursday, October 2, 2008, 2:06 PMIt appears your analysis of the hit on Boldin was right. Larry. At least according to Mike Sando at ESPN, who wrote:
"Jets safety Kerry Rhodes hit Boldin from behind on the play in question, sending the receiver's head more directly into the path of Smith's helmet."

It's an interesting piece that focuses more on the coaches' responsibilities in playing so hard in a game that's clearly lost. It also talks about other controversial hits this season, including Brady's.
There is risk involved with every play. I never want to see any team quit just because there is risk involved. I don’t even like the kneel downs that are taken when a team has more points and there is little time left.
I like the way the AFL does it. In the last minute of the half if the team in possession of the ball doesn’t gain positive yardage the clock stops. That to me would be a welcome addition to the NFL rules. It certainly would make the games more exciting.
