Add Okung, Willis to list of fined players

By Mike Sando

A few notes on NFL fines from NFC West games in Week 12:
A former NFL safety emailed me in disgust this week, complaining about fines for hits defenders could not reasonably avoid, particularly those when offensive players ducked into more dangerous contact. He also blamed quarterbacks for hanging out receivers over the middle, claiming fines were enabling these throws. I tend to agree, but might take a different view as a receiver trying to catch those passes over the middle.
