I am not arguing at all that it doesn't fit the rule. I'm saying that the rule is bogus and the it's been called so inconsistently. I'm not mad at Clay Matthews there at all, though. It's a pivotal moment and he's had a 10 year career where that's a legal hit. That's a tackle, and it's clean as can be in any year other than one. As for him being called previously for it, in week 2 he got called even while actively shifting his body weight off of the QB, so fuck it. As others have said, the league might as well make the QBs down by 2 hand touch at this point. Or maybe just do away with lineman all together since pass rushing is so evil. Let's just have a 7-on-7 score-a-thon.
