So... There’s no way we can play against Pittsburgh now, right? I’m not aware of all the protocols the NFL has in place for a situation like this, but between all the contact tracing that I’m sure goes on and the inability to practice/game plan the game doesn’t seem likely to take place.
It’s so ridiculous, I don’t know who thought it would be a good idea to toss players over what are in a lot of cases normal hits. I do like the idea of having different levels of targeting, it makes a lot more sense than what we’ve got now
The powers that be need to take a long look at the targeting rule. It seems that it’s oftentimes left up to the discretion of the officials, and I feel as though they’re wrong more often than not. If nothing else, don’t freaking eject a kid over a hit that clearly had no malicious intent behind it.
