When the ball hits a db in the back ,or the back of the helmet, and he doesnt look back. and "then" the db runs into the receiver, that is called as PI , even tho the ball is uncatchable by the wr - how stupid is that?
in this case it was clearly uncatachable because the LB had a bear hug qround Gronk and Gronk certanly couldnt catch it = lol
NFL has issues with its rules - the Brooks hit on Brees was an idiotic call
btw i heaerd CC say that Face guarding is illegal - I remember in a SD playoff game - Simms said the same thing agaisnt the Pats, but I believe that rule is gonzo
so we have two crapsandwich calls so far this season
Yeah, I believe face guarding is college only now. I take it that when the talking heads say face guarding they are talking about contact by the Db without playing the ball. I mean the DB is not turning his head toward the ball.
I can't believe the mean face guarding like it used to be called.
We well know about this issue, because they called that on Hobbs in the AFCCG in complete and total error. Thanks NFL.
Why was the Hobbs call in error? The rules clearly state if the defender impedes the defender and doesn't play the ball (meaning have your head turned around looking for the ball) and makes contact with the receiver, its PI. That is exactly whay he did and why he was penalized. This is clearly stated in the first item in the rules under Probihited Acts.
(a) Contact by a player who is not playing the ball that restricts the opponent’s opportunity to make the catch.
The Hobbs situation was totally different than the Gronk situation because in the Hobb's situation the receiver had a legitimate chance to catch the ball. In Gronk's situation it was "uncatchable". Get it!!!!!
Dude! Hobbs NEVER made contact with the receiver, that's why Simms came up with "face guarding" and the league sent a letter of apology to Hobbs...Get it!!!!!!!
I've yet to see Hobbs produce that letter for the public. I think his comments might have been intentionally mistaken.
