You obviously cannot hit a runner who is giving themselves up, but the game is fast and when the slide starts so late, the Defensive player would have to anticipate the slide before it happens and pull out of his tackle. If they do that, and the QB then doesn't slide, they look completely stupid. Its the same with DBs and WRs when they are trying to break up passes. I don't know how to make it entirely fair. Yip. I don't believe there's any such thing as a 'defenceless receiver', just QB's who take liberties by throwing the ball into space over the middle, and at WR's who aren't open. If you want to risk your health by trying to grab one of those ball, fair enough, but the defense should have the same opportunity and it that means you get your clock cleaned as a result, tough shit. The NFL doesn't genuinely care about player health, it's just pathologically averse to incomplete passes and low yardage games. 0 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
