We all know how the NFL has rules that protect the QB and provide them protection from hits that other positions don't have. A clear example how these rules have hurt the game is the Vince Young run after he was wrapped up but the defensive lineman let him go on that 4-10 play. I believe the defensive lineman did this because his head was down and thought Young had thrown the ball. If Young had thrown the ball and he did throw Young to the ground, it would have been roughing the passer, 15 yards and an automatic 1st down. A similar play happened a few weeks ago against Brady. I believe it was a Sunday night game. Brady did a pump fake right when he was hit, so the defensive lineman held up and didn't wrap him up. If Brady had thrown the ball, and the defensive lineman continued on his tackle, it would have been a roughing the passer penalty. Result, Brady got outside the pocket and threw down the field for a 1st down. Not every QB in the league will be able to use the subtle advantages, but QBs like Brady and Young, that never quite on play, will be able to use this to their advantage similar to how only a few pitchers in the majors can exploite a very small increase in the strike zone. I think these rules protecting the QBs have now worked their way through now and that defensive players are not following plays all the way through against the QB. What do you guys think, is this a good thing?
