Looking at the amount of elevator he's using, there's not a lot left to cushion the nosewheel on it's long descent to the runway.

They must be very new at the job.

Maybe he thought there were some wheels on the back there.

Well....there is a tail protector at the back. Looks like it has a roller as well!!
Brian Rushfeldt

The gear is fully depressed, they're not new, the shadow makes it look worse, Vegas = hot = turbulence, It's a Sky-west plane and crew, (so yea just fly American - which Skywest crews including this one fly for) and none of us know the weather that day -
Looks like a Concorde laning at that AOA
