I couldn’t agree more. Also I noticed all the officials aren’t on the same pageIt looks like some fouls are called & some aren’t, depending on the official. Its totally ridiculous. For God’s sake let the players play. Remember its FOOTBALL.
Certainly the days of the Jack Tatum like hits are over. Maybe if the defensive backs start lowering the hit zone and enough knees get taken out they will stop being so ridiculous on these helmet to helmet hits that are incidental glancing blows when the initial hit is to the shoulders. That Clayborn penalty was pitiful. Oh well. I’ll say one thing…the way the Bucs are hitting is making me want to watch just to see who is gonna get punished. I love hard hitting football and right now we certainly have that.
I like the brand of defense the Bucs are playing. Unfortunately, physical play is frowned upon in todays NFL. I’m sure if you ask any player, most, if not all of them would rather be hit in the head instead of the knees. You can barely touch the QB to get a sack and trying to separate the receiver from the ball is out of the question. Eventually there will be ramifications for the rule changes, like an increase in injuries to other parts of the body. You can’t take out the physical nature of a physical game.
Howie played in the days of men playing football. These days guys like brady and manning are screaming for a flag if another player breathes on them. Howdy Doodell needs to bring back real football, not the sissy league they play now .
