    Nevermind he blocked the field goal to keep the Steelers off the board (no mention of that at all)

    So first off there is no f-ing was Sushi-Shamaow is catching JoJo so it was not even in play and also unless Sweeshums arm are attached to his back it was a bullshit call. Manning pushed is arm from the side when blocking him.

    As I understand there is no rule about whether the blocked player could have caught the Texan or not. Manning blocked him in the back. Good call.

    Might have been against the rules, but i think the rules could use a change. Kind of like how alot of times pass interference doesn't get called because the ball was out of reach.

    Bull shit. Manning hit him from the side. You are correct the rule doesn't say the player being blocked has to be in a position to make a tackle but that is generally understood by refs and again it was not in the back, it was perpendicular.

    He shouldn't have touched the guy period, but he did block the field goal... But i wonder, is this the first time a player has taken 10 points off the board in one play?

    As for it being a penalty that refs can use descretion on if it happens away from the play etc..., isn't this rule also meant for player protection?

    Ridiculous call considering he got him from the side.
    Ridiculous call considering it had no bearing on the play at all.
    Ridiculous call considering the refs had already penalized us unfairly multiple times throughout the game.

    Its a good thing we won, or I'd be livid
