hittin the QB
For those keeping score at home, as of now, it is illegal to hit the quarterback:
1. Anywhere above the shoulders with your arm;
2. Below the thighs;
3. With the crown of your helmet;
4. With your head at anything lower than the “2 o’clock� position, and;
5. Anywhere, if the ball was released more than 1/32 of a step prior to contact.

It’s not as bad as it looks, however. As far as I can tell, the following moves are still on the table:
1. Kicking the quarterback in the head;
2. Kneeing or punching the quarterback in the groin
3. Removing the helmet and beating the quarterback mercilessly with it while maintaining your head in an upright position;
4. Removing and throwing cleats at the quarterback;
5. Grabbing the quarterback’s hand and making him slap himself in the head;
6. Spitting on the quarterback;
7. Setting fire to the quarterback;
8. Severely spanking the quarterback, and, of course;
9. Allowing oneself to be physically thrown at the quarterback by a teammate

All times are GMT -5. The time now is 02:16 AM.
