  • Roughing the passer

    The NFL better get a handle on some of these rules and how the refs call a game

    I don't have the sound up one TV # 2, but the pocket collapsed around Brees as the Browns blitzed, he was gang tackled just because there was no protection... and they called roughing... horrible call

    Simply proof that they're more interested in protecting the "franchise" quarterbacks than they are the receivers.

      I don't think you can make that case this week... that being said, I do think that is one reason you are seeing these head hunter, launching lead with the helmet hits... the QB's are over protected, and those corners with less skill have to get "dirty" because of the advantage the QB's have...

        If you're talking about the one I saw, Brees got smacked in the head. It wasn't a big hit, and I think the rule goes a little overboard -- but it was a penalty by the book.
        No weather forecasts are ever guaranteed, even if confidence level is high. Even a 99% probability will miss 1% of the time. That's the best anybody can do when predicting highly complex events.

          I had the sound down, but I did see him get hit in the head, but I honestly thought it was his own player? Hard to keep up with everyone while watching two games and the red zone on the third tv

            The rules have become ridiculous regarding the quarterback. They might as well just say that you can't touch the quarterback, ever.

              That doesn't make any sense.

                The rules are waaaaay too protective of the QB, but if I was in charge and my income was based on TV ratings I would do everything in the world to make sure that Monday night's game featured Peyton Manning rather than Painter.

                  Was it Jack Lambert that said, "Why don't they just put dresses on the quarterbacks?"?

                    Yes and that very statement was discussed just last night. I too feel that the rules are too lenient towards protecting the quarterback but I also see why as TD pointed out. The NFL likes a high-scoring offensive game and you're not going to get that with second-string, reserve quarterbacks playing.

                      No single absence can affect a team and a game like that of a starting quarterback.
                      That and the fact they are the most vulnerable makes them worth protecting.
                      I mean, where would the Bears be without Jay Cutler?
