Re: Samuels Fined For Illegal Block

Re: Samuels Fined For Illegal Block

I remember the play, but I don't remember the block. What's the rule when a defensive player is engaged with another offensive player?

Re: Samuels Fined For Illegal Block

I know, but what's "low"? Below the belt? Below the knees?

Re: Samuels Fined For Illegal Block

Re: Samuels Fined For Illegal Block

The block was actually NOT illegal. You can engage low at the line of scrimmage, but not while the opposition is engaged with another player.

Whilst everyone in the game thinks this type of "chop" block should be illegal, i don't think its currently not legal in the rule books. I remember chickenneck (Collingsworth) saying that was a horrible play, but currently is NOT a foul.

actually, it was illegal. garay was already engaged with Kendell( i think) before Samuels got involved. thus, no going low on someone that is already " engaged"
