When a team is obviously and admittedly using PI to attempt to render a WR unusable...I think it ought to carry an extra 15 yards for unsportsmanlike conduct. 30 yards a whack is more likely to end that "strategy" than is 15.
A QB snaps the ball. You can’t hit him high, you can’t hit him low, you can’t him a second late. You can’t interfere with the ability for a receiver to run his route. You can’t be physical after 5 yards. You can’t hold. You can’t interfere. Once he catches the ball, you can’t hit their helmet, you can’t lower your helmet. If he catches the ball and your hit caused a fumble, it’s not a fumble because he hasn’t made a “football move.”
In today’s game the defense is put at a major disadvantage before they even line up. If you are outmatched and the only thing you can do to not get dominated is commit a penalty, do it. Next week at Texas, if one of our DBs is getting burned in what looks like a huge play, I hope he takes the 15 yard penalty.
I hate it when it happens, but I get it.
