    Ya think?
    That is disconcerting.

    Woodley has been in this game long enough to know how to adjust and to quite OVER perusing while bull rushing.

    Harrison isn't being double teamed either! He may be being held, but no one is doube teaming any of our LBs....

    What I don't understand is why all of a sudden it's a problem? Weren't teams chop blocking in years past? Is this something new from this year?

    As an aside, I do have an issue with the chop block. The NFL has become the pansy league, trying at every turn to kill the enjoyment . . . I mean prevent injury. Even to the point where you can't even tackle a receiver who catches the ball in front of you because that's a 15 yard penalty for hitting a defenseless receiver (I guess you're supposed to let him catch it and run for a TD. . . not that they called it for us this week when Ward got smushed from behind while he was defensless trying to make a catch, but I digress.) And hell, you can't even walk by Brady and they call a penalty. Personal Foul, getting within 1 yard of Tom Brady, 15 yard penalty, automatic first down.

    Having someone block you up high while someone else cuts your legs out is ripe for injury. Yet they allow it. I really don't understand that. It all seems very inconsistent to me.

    I don't think so.. I think they would be studs. They can fall forward just as easily as they get pushed backwards. Pouncey can definately hold his man up so my fav Steeler can come by and sweep the leg like Cobra Kai

    I don't think the league is going to change their view on the situation so I think the Steelers just better learn to adjust to the techniques even though it irritates me as well.
