I dont get this logic. How do you know what would have happened with different variables? You are making an assumption. Saying he would have had "no chance" with a different set of circumstances sounds crazy to me.
I could understand if the pass was intercepted and then the pass interference happened, similarly to a tipped ball and pass interference happening after that gets waved off.
But I am not willing to act like I know how things would have played out had the linebacker not been committing the penalty.
Where is Ben Tate with his wishy washy comments when we need him?
