I'm confused by this entire thing? Is it a rule? Is it not a rule? Does someone have to be injured on the play to have it called? I don't think it was enforced at all this season....
Wow, thanks for the frame by frame. It's funny though, even at regular speed, at least 10 of us piped in with Horse Collar! It was that freakin' blatant! And not called, of course. I almost never see it called!
It became illegal after T.O. got hurt by it last year.
I thought it was hilarious how they put this new rule into place for this year, and they get a textbook example of it in the Super Bowl, and it doesn't get called.
It falls under unnecessary roughness, so you might not notice it.
And the funny thing is, you can see an official's hat in the bottom corner of the last frame. Looking right at the play!
ive seen numerous occasions this year of a blatant horse collar tackle and its not called.. i just think the refs dont call it..
its gonna need a horse collar on manning or a colt to get a point of emphasis in place
From what I could see, he had the jersey and not the shoulder pads. I believe that's why it wasn't called. That said, I'm not a big fan of all the trash talking. Just play the game and let your play speak for it's self.
Maybe it should be "emphasized" next year.
Because it would have been on the Squealers, Not the 'Hawks. There was no way the league (and by that, read officials) were gonna let a third rate market team with only one marginal marquee name and no "personalities" carry their prime time television package next year. That would be marketing and advertizing poison.
Wow. If that is holding, what would good blocking be considered?
