I agree generally it is a rare call even in the NFL, but he is dumb about it and it looks habitual. He isn't getting a little shove in for separation while playing hand games with the defender. He is doing stuff like grabbing jersey and pulling backwards to slingshot himself by and that is going to get flagged in a heartbeat. More importantly, how is he going to look if he drops all of it in the NFL?
