Posté le: 01.02.2019, 05:45:11 Sujet du message: Not Clay Matthews, the Packers linebacker who's been flagged
Sure does seem as if "When is a sack just a sack?" is quickly becoming the NFL's new "Did that player lower his helmet too much?" or "What Youth Wesley Woodyard Jersey , exactly, is a catch?"It's a fundamental element of football how a pass-rusher is allowed to bring a QB down to the ground and no one really seems to be clear on it at the moment.Not Alex Smith, the Redskins quarterback who was sacked by Matthews with about as straightforward a tackle as can be on Sunday. Not Packers coach Mike McCarthy, who yelled at two officials after the call. Not players on either team or on either side of the ball."Unfortunately this league is going in a direction that a lot of people don't like. I think they're getting soft. The only thing hard about this league is the fines they levy down on guys like me that play the game hard," Matthews said after Green Bay's 31-17 loss at Washington."Nine years, I've been doing it one way in the NFL, successfully, and now it just seems as if that way doesn't work anymore. And that's frustrating," Matthews said with a huge sigh."I don't run the league office," he said, "but you'd like to see football be football."Rule 12, Section 2 http://www.titansauthorizedshops.com/authentic-brian-orakpo-jersey , Article 9 (b) of the NFL rulebook says that "a defensive player must not unnecessarily or violently throw (a passer) down or land on top of him with all or most of the defender's weight. Instead, the defensive player must strive to wrap up the passer with the defensive player's arms and not land on the passer with all or most of his body weight."That rule has been around for years, but the league's competition committee made it a point of emphasis this season. More than 30 roughing-the-passer penalties were called in this season's first two weeks alone."That was basically my key 鈥?that he landed on him with most or all of his body weight," referee Craig Wrolstad told a pool reporter Sunday."But if you've got a shoulder into him and then landed on him with most of his body weight off him or released him when he went down, then he would have been OK," Wrolstad said. "But in my judgment, I ruled that he landed on him with most or all of his body weight there."If the 15-yard penalty was assessed correctly in this instance, count McCarthy and Matthews among those who think that rule needs to be rewritten or, at the very least, reinterpreted."Somehow," Packers defensive lineman Kenny Clark said, "we've got to find a way to grab the quarterback and twirl our body and not land on the quarterback."Sounds impossible."What do you want the man to do?" said one of Smith's defensive teammates, Josh Norman. "When I saw it DaQuan Jones Jersey , it was not malicious, ill intent. It was just a nice form tackle."Another Redskins defender, safety D.J. Swearinger, sided with Matthews, too."They're making the game less fun," Swearinger said. "He made a great play.
That's crazy."In case you missed it, here are other top topics after the NFL season's third Sunday:NO ONE KNOWS ANYTHINGNo way to know what is going to happen week to week in the NFL. The Buffalo Bills 鈥?considered by some the worst team in the league 鈥?and rookie QB Josh Allen went on the road as 16陆-point underdogs and roughed up Kirk Cousins and the Minnesota Vikings 27-6. The Redskins 鈥?coming off a 12-point loss to the Colts 鈥?thumped Aaron Rodgers and the Packers. The Detroit Lions went from 0-2 to 26-10 winners over Bill Belichick, Tom Brady and the rest of the New England Patriots, who have lost by double digits twice in a row. The club that beat the Patriots by 11 last week, the Jacksonville Jaguars, turned in a stinker, a 9-6 loss to the Tennessee Titans, who started Blaine Gabbert.WATCHU TALKIN' 'BOUT Authentic Jurrell Casey Jersey , WILSON?The Miami Dolphins are off to a 3-0 start, thanks in part to a unique performance by receiver Albert Wilson in a 28-20 victory over Jon Gruden's winless Oakland Raiders. Wilson became only the fourth player in NHL history to throw a TD pass of at least 50 yards and catch a TD pass of at least 50 yards in the same game.Follow Howard Fendrich on Twitter at /HowardFendrich I felt so good about things this morning. I even took the Titans in a survivor pool that I was in. Good thing it was a free one on FanDuel. Anyway, after the longest game in NFL history the Titans are 0-1 and lost 3 of their best players to injury. The one that will have the most long-term ramifications on this team this season is the injury to Delanie Walker. You can watch it here, but fair warning, it isn’t for the squeamish. He will go to IR.Taylor Lewan was knocked out of the game on this play. Is that legal? Sure doesn’t seem like it should be in the same game where Malcolm Butler got an unnecessary roughness penalty for tackling a guy. He obviously had a concussion. We will have to see how he progresses through the protocol this week.Marcus Mariota did something to his elbow. Unfortunately, he just cannot stay on the field. We have no idea at this point what he did to his elbow or how serious it is. Blaine Gabbert came in and did what Blaine Gabbert does. If you have watched him you know exactly what that means.Welp, this is not how I was expecting to feel after the opener. I have no idea what the rest of this season holds. As I said this morning, you cannot get too high or too low on the teams based on what happens in week 1, but man it is hard to not adjust the wins I was expecting from this team down a tick or two based on what the team looked like today...and the fact that Delanie is going to be gone for a long time, if not the whole season.
