Here's a great shot that show Tebow was clearly inbounds when he was hit:
I've seen a QB slow down like that in the past, only to end up running down the sideline for a few more yards. Until that guy is out of bounds, you have to make sure he is tackled!
And it wasn't a shot at his ankles like the CBS guy claimed. Clean hit. Whistle wasn't blown obviously.
Especially true with one like Tebow.
Dude is a running QB past the line of scrimmage still in the field of play. BS call.
Note, too, that the hit was not a low, cheap shot as was suggested by the announcers for CBS but actually was a thump on the hip (or butt). Folks see what they want to see. No wonder CLM was all over the refs!ldskule:
This is the problem with making rules that "protect" the QB. You have teams that have QBs that are bigger than linebackers that make their living running the ball. It's total BS, if your gonna decide to run you better be ready to take the hits. That was called totally because the refs thought we were trying to hurt Tebow. I'd even bet the refs were told to watch for that with all the "nasty play" the were are getting known for.
Very good shot. Tebow is too good to not hit him in that situation. After that, I made a point to notice everytime some running backs went OOB. Most of the time, it was either the same thing or even a little later hit on them that did not warrant a call. It was all about Tebow that time. I think you should be allowed to hit him as long as he is standing upright. He is really good.
great job wit h the screencap paducah!!
He could have cut it up the field for a few extra yards. Never trust a guy in jorts and sandals.
