Puts the guy out for the season, on one selfish move.
BTW...You guys have already played Denver...did they use any of these cuts on your linemen?
Unfortunately 'chop blocks' are legal, but there is a fine line between a chop block and a 'crack back' block. If a lineman is engaged in a block and then he gets hit low by another player, then it is a 'crack back'. If he is in a one on one situation it is a legal 'chop block'. I consider chop blocking borderline unethical, but it is certainly legal until they put a stop to this kind of stuff.
