Now that you mention this, it does kinda jog my memeory. But thanks for
jogging it.
And that's really very logical, I mean especially if one considers that a defender can't devote his undivided attention to bringing down the ballcarrier when he might be preoccupied with protecting his lower extemities from a cut-block.
I really wonder why this technique hasn't been outlawed ? Even though it
might sound like I'm lobbying to get it banned, I'm really not. Just wondering why a technique so controverial and unpopular remains legal ? For example,
I dunno how many times I've heard no less an NFL icon than John Madden
