The NFL has made it VERY clear - ANY helmet to helmet contact in a
situation like that is going to get flagged. I've only seen Wilson 2
or three times now, and
I don't like him. This was stupid as well as dangerous. Wilson is a
loose cannon on top of being a SH*TTY DB. This guy is NOT my favorite
Dolphin. It's a piss
poor use of payroll.
