I agree. I remember back in 2004-2005 or so the Bronco O-line was ending the season of several players including a Redskin.
Remember this?:
Sports: Stop the chop? Broncos called out

"A below-the-knee block by Broncos right tackle George Foster on defensive tackle Tony Williams during the Bengals' 23-10 win Monday night has created a brouhaha across the NFL.

The Bengals believe Foster's block, which dislocated and fractured Williams' left ankle and ended his season, was unnecessary and another example of the Broncos' unsavory blocking methods.

Jaguars defensive end Paul Spicer was lost earlier this season with a broken leg after being blocked by Broncos left tackle Matt Lepsis. The league determined Lepsis' block, like Foster's, was legal.....
The problem is some teams, like the Broncos, have a long-standing reputation for being particularly adept at the below-the-knee block. In just the past four seasons, five players have been severely hurt by a similar block while playing against the Broncos.

At his news conference last week, Bill Cowher was asked what he thought of the block. The Steelers coach said it was uncalled for and warned the Broncos to "do unto others as you want them do onto you."
Shanahan was "a little offended" by Cowher's remarks....

"I've been in the league 27 years now, and from the first year to this year I've never taught a block below the waist," Redskins veteran offensive line coach Joe Bugel said. "I think the integrity of the game is, if you're an offensive lineman, you block above the waist, you block on your numbers, you block on the hips - but you don't block anybody's knees."

Re: Redskins Learn Nuances of Cut-Blocking

Axing cut block a no-brainer - NFL - ESPN

Another article that is brought up by some no name QB that agrees with my point of the inconsistency of the NFL to create so many rules to protect offensive players but not for defensive players.

''The inconsistency in allowing the cut block borders on the absurd.

Think about all the rules that promote offense and protect offensive players: A defensive player can barely breathe on a quarterback without getting a 15-yard penalty ... a wide receiver can't be hit when he goes across the middle (until he has the ball) ... a defensive back can't bump a receiver after five yards ... and then there's all the offensive pass interference that isn't called.

But it's OK to block a defensive lineman at the knees, one of the most vulnerable places for a professional football player.
