Interesting read on why the game has become harder to officiate for the referees, but statements like this:

“Robert Griffin III, was running outside of the pocket at the time of the hit, though, so the roughing the passer penalty is tougher to enforce” confuse the issue.

RGII was past the line of scrimmage as a runner when he took the hit, that makes it IMPOSSIBLE to call roughing the passer — as he is no longer a “passer” and lumping Russell Wilson’s spraining his ankle just muddies the point.

Loved the part about scheme differences and speed of the game — and the article overall.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?
