Horsecollar or not
« on: December 21, 2017, 07:09:04 PM »
https://youtu.be/04Yy5uCJVj0  If not, is that because it does not meet the letter of the law or the intent of the rule or both?

I don't have a HC here.  Knees didn't buckle, plus he fell forward.

What changed 3 years ago with that explanation? The only thing I know is by philosophy some will say to flag it if the knees buckle but he doesn't get tackled. But if he's tackled like this it should be a horse collar. I would grade this as an incorrect no call.

Defender grabed the jersey and pulled to slow the WR down.  With that not working, DB went to the ground and jerked the WR down.  If you look at the two actions independently, then you can conclude the second action caused an immediate buckling of the legs making this a textbook HCT.  I would go with Sumstine's ruling any day.

  Check out the "You Make The Call" discussion in this forum for the targeting play.

Maybe all the state coaches should rethink this "lets use houston chapter for every state champ game" idea?
