The Roughing the QB penalty on Hicks

Ok I agree that his suplex throw of Luck was a penalty. But if the refs are REALLY interested in protecting the QB, they should have called "in the grasp" when Jordan had him wrapped up. That would have immediately stopped the play. I guess even the refs are still in preseason form

Like on Lewis's non-interception? And Galette was getting turned all nite- he was screaming for a holding call

I always thought they whistled the play dead when the ball carriers forward motion was stopped.

If he didn't body slam him no flag

Cant do that to a qb

Ingram was slammed pretty good on a nice run

Refs are in preseason too but if they continue to be so not picky networks are going to be pissed when games are going into 4 hours.

The refs suck and make me think that their mother has a bet on the game or something.

Ya can't slam a QB like that. It'll get flagged every time.

And why couldn't Junior bring Luck down?

Re: The Roughing the QB penalty on Hicks

Hicks was in beast mode last night. I think they slowed him down with those penalties. Loved his hustle. The O-line of other teams better beware, our D-line is the real thing.

It was cam Jordan that couldn't bring luck down, was kind of disappointed seeing that to be honest, luck made it seem like Jordan wasn't even there

Looking at the play, leverage (seemed to me Cam had little); plus Andrew Luck is a big boy: Hicks had him all wrapped up and could not bring him down either without going Ndomikong on Luck.
