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 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.
