Packers safety McMillian fined 15k for hit in Lions game

Today, announced that Packers Safety Jerron McMillian has been fined $15,000 by the league for a hit he committed in Sunday's win over the Lions. Late in the fourth quarter of that 22-9 Green Bay victory, McMillian hit Detroit TE Tony Scheffler unnecessarily hard after a completed catch. 

I'll be honest, I actually didn't see this hit. But if it was bad enough to force a fine by the NFL, I bet it was pretty severe. I don't like seeing Packers get fined, but they have to learn that aggressive hits aren't necessary. They obviously don't get special treatment.
