The Arizona Cardinals are on their way to a win over the Cleveland Browns on the road, but the game couldn’t end before we witnessed the worst call we’ll all see this week. Murray gets rid of a ball 15-20 yards down the field to eventually be touched by Browns defensive tackle Malik Jackson —
Roughing the passer was called. And to make matters worse, Jackson was pushed into Murray, which was the only reason there was any physicality to this play in the first place.
This was called “roughing the passer”. The NFL will be a ballet recital by 2030.

We all get the pro-quarterback rules that’ll protect the longevity of QB’s late into their 30’s, but we’re going too far. This is still supposed to be football that is considered the most physical sport in the world outside of rugby and hockey, depending on who you ask.
New rules come about for good reason, however NFL commissioner Roger Goodell has to find more effective ways to implement them. This is becoming a joke…
