    Nice "math" K-train, but you gotta leave food off the board because you make us all hungry!

    Cut blocking is down right dirty and needs to be addressed sometime soon. I know there are rules in place for blocking low already but nothing in regards to cutting. It's a cheap shot and it puts players careers on the line.

    I'm sure the NFL will address it esp. with so many complaints from teams and players...they will probably dub it the "Atlanta Falcons Rule" lol

    sig made by K Train....Thank you!

    Maybe it's just me but I don't see it as dirty as long as it is one on one. I know there are rules against having 2 players (one blocking low and one high) but this is different. If player 1 tries to block player 2 it shouldn't matter where he blocks as long as it is clean and isn't holding.

    It can't really be dirty now because there aren't any rules in place for it My point is, going low on someones knees is very borderline and shouldn't be allowed. The quarterbacks all wear skirts now, so why not protect the knees of these guys in the trenches a little better so they can stick around in the league for awhile.

    I can see both sides though where one would think it's not dirty. I just hate seeing someone lose a knee because of how they were blocked.

    Fine
    If there were a penalty imposed every time it was used, I think it would definitely make it a much less used option.

    They do whatever else they can to try to protect players--like (for example) the "horse-collar" and face masking aren't allowed...so the refs KNOW there are certain tackles/blocks that are rife with risks.

    This "cut blocking" sounds like one of them.

    But if the head ref won't do anything about it, let's just hope Faneca and the rest of our line does it better than Atlanta
