04:19 PM ET 09.16 | San Francisco 49ers defensive lineman Ian Williams suffered a broken ankle during the team's 29-3 loss to the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday Night Football on a questionable - but legal - low block. After the game, Williams' teammate, linebacker Patrick Willis, spoke out about the hit and he was unhappy with how the Seahawks line approached the block. Unfortunately for Willis, it was technically a clean hit. The problem here is the inconsistency with the NFL rules. It is okay to hit defenders almost wherever you would like, but if the roles were reversed a penalty flag could be thrown.

It's okay to paralyze a defender but you'd better not hurt a QB's feelings.

Unwritten rule in football is never hit a guy low when he's not looking.

All you have to do is have Manning and Brady play defense for a few snaps and then the rules will change.

This is turning out to be the best rivalry in the NFL.

The forty-whiners are at it against. It's ok for a 300 lb. DE to hit a defenseless QB when he's handing off the ball, but it's never ok to hit a forty-whiner player. Especially if its a legal hit.

Boo-hoo the whole world is unfair to the entire forty-whiner organization, and especially it's cry baby coach.
