This is my dream scenario. Just go back to calling the game like they did for 50 years before The Golden Boy Tom Brady went down and Mother Goodell freaked out.
They changed all the rules when Brady got hurt. Don't hit high, don't hit low. Now you can't even hit the neck. You can't even hit high on the shoulder pads near to the neck or perceived to be near to the neck.
So you got to run full speed as a pass rusher, having some 6'7" 335 lb. monster shoving you the whole way, get around that and hit a QB in the belly button area of the stomach. Nowhere above. Nowhere below. And don't do that too hard either or it will be roughing. Even a midsection hit too hard will be a penalty no doubt.
I'm sorry what they are asking and expecting is absurd.
