It’s almost as if the league cares more about PR than player safetyAnd how was that not unnecessary roughness? The screen receiver never touched the ball, and the defender launched himself into him, speared him like a fish while he was still arms-outstretched.
In practice I guess you never see that called because it's a big guy getting hit by a big guy and We All Know They Can Take It. But man the inconsistency is consistently infuriating.
You mean, you're not "giving credit to defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo" for that one?Rivers underthrew him by roughly 10 yards. Patton can fly, and had 2 steps when the ball was thrown. Put some air under it, and let him go get it. The defender should have never been in the play.
