I remember the Browns game last week. Actually probably costed the Brownies the game. Ben looked like he would be sacked, but I think it was Wimbley who put a little hit into him but then pulled back and put up his hands. Of course Ben was too strong and stumbled, got his balance, scrambled to the side and completed a big 1st down. It was going to be a huge loss and probably would've ruined the drive.
As a Browns fan, that play is the one that made me be 100% "turned off" by the NFL this year.
It would have been 3rd and 20 instead of 1st and 10.
Same thing in the NYG/TEN game yesterday, that play actually might have cost me my fantasy game as well. Because if that sack goes down then Eli doesn't lose the game at the end and cost me 3 more points for the INT.
This crap about getting 15 yarders and fined for hitting the QB in any fashion is ruining the NFL.
I 100% understand not allowing leading with your head, forearms to the head, etc. But when you get to the point that lineman and LBs have to pull up letting the QB spin out and get a 1st down that would have never happened if the defender could just hit the QB, then the game is ruined.
