Defenseless receiver....doesn't matter.

Every receiver is defenseless when making a catch doesn’t mean you can’t hit them.

Its unnecessary roughness to hit the person receiving a pass?

 

Yes, if it is in the head/neck area. A receiver must become a runner before that is allowed. Defenseless Receiver rule... the second call was suspect on the P.I. but it was illegal contact at the minimum as defender made contact well pas the 5 yard line beyond the line of scrimmage.  So it wa sat least a 5 yard penalty and auto 1st down, but they gave them the P.I. instead.

You just can't hit them in the head...accident or not.

Shouldn't be considered defenseless. Just a dumb rule by the NFL, IMO. If going to catch a pass makes one defenseless every tackle should be a flag.

He turned his body to avoid targeting him. Gronk just stumbled down to him. There was nothing he could do to avoid it he even pulled up.

Cant hit a receiver in the head / neck area until he is clearly established as a 'runner'

Blame it on the NFL getting sued by former players.

If he leads with the other shoulder he probably doesn't get the penalty.  Easy for me to say from my recliner though.

That's exactly right...The NFL had to do something to limit obvious head shots whether they're intentional or not (and that one was kinda intentional)

you can hit the receiver, you just can't touch his helmet in any fashion while in a defenseless position, even by 'accident' or it is a penalty.  It is the rule.

I agree but when the receiver falls like that into you and your turning and not leading with the head...that to me is not the spirit of the rule. It only got called because he didn’t get up...but there was no targeting nothing...it’s not the defenders fault Gronks head dropped when he stumbled and the sides hit each other. I can live with that call to protect guys but then to follow it up with PI when the receiver ran his route out of bounds because the defender pinched him that’s just perfect defense...horrible.

And if that players moves his head/neck into the path of said defender?

 

Still a penalty.  Just bad fortune for the defender, but now a part of the game. It won't be change back, either

So the point is to deter those hrs. How does one not do something they can’t control?

I'm all about safety first.  If he's showing signs of concussion he should sit.   And I'm not just saying that because I want the Jags to win.    I'm not heartless...   His well being should come first.

That’s the rule...that isn’t the spirit of the rule. It’s meant to protect receivers from being targeted and defenders from leading with crown and having head to head collisions. Not a wr who trips and falls into a defender who clearly pulled up and even turned his back to the play.

This could be 17-3 or even 21-3. 3 huge penalties has kept the Pats in this = the delay of game, hit on Gronk, and that Interference on a ball that wasn't catchable.

    • Jack Doyle I would downgrade from 86 to 82. Darius Leonard upgrade from 84 to 88. Jabaal Sheard upgrade from 82 to 84. Pierre Desir and Kenny Moore more like 81-84, instead of 79 and 80.   Denico Autry at 76 is a joke, last year had him at 80, what did he do to lose the ratings? Rigo Sanchez at 74 is a joke. Mark Glowinski should be 78 or so, not 74. Jacoby Brisset at 71 is a joke. Anthony Walker at 69 is a joke, minimum 75. Le'Raven Clark at 56 is a joke, if he was that bad, we would have a highlight reel of his bad moves *cough* Austin Howard *cough*
    • Not sure if it was mentioned?  ...but Patterson is out for the year.   https://www.colts.com/news/rookie-center-javon-patterson-out-for-year-with-acl-injury   INDIANAPOLIS — Indianapolis Colts head coach Frank Reich said Tuesday that rookie center Javon Patterson will miss the 2019 season after suffering an injury to his ACL.   "Unfortunately Javon Patterson did sustain an ACL injury, so he’ll be out for the year," Reich told reporters. "Tough break for him, but one of the things we know about Javon: a high-character guy. We’ve talked to him and will give him all the support he needs.   "He’ll rehab and get ready to go for next year."   Patterson was the Colts' seventh-round (246th-overall) pick in this year's NFL Draft out of Ole Miss.
    • Eric Ebron is not to happy lol.  
    • What people are you talking about?   This was the only quote in this thread I could find that fits:   and Supe said he was wrong because Leonard lived up to his pick and the Colts got it right...  Unless I missed something, this seems like a bit of an overreaction.
