NFL Roughing Ejections: New Rule Regarding Roughing The Passer

December 15, 2022 by · Comments Off on NFL Roughing Ejections: New Rule Regarding Roughing The Passer 

The NFL has been in the news a lot lately for its new rule regarding roughing the passer. In case you haven’t been following, the rule essentially states that any player who hits a quarterback in the head or neck area will be automatically ejected from the game. This has led to a lot of confusion and controversy, with many people arguing that the rule is too harsh and that it is putting quarterbacks at an unfair disadvantage. In this blog post, we will take a look at both sides of the argument and try to make sense of what is happening with the NFL’s new rule.

Roughing the passer has been a point of emphasis for NFL officials this season. As a result, several players have been ejected for roughing the passer penalties.

Most recently, Houston Texans defensive end Jadeveon Clowney was ejected for a hit on Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen. Clowney was not flagged on the play, but after review, officials determined that he had made contact with Allen’s head.

This is just the latest in a string of roughing the passer ejections this season. Other players who have been ejected for roughing the passer include Detroit Lions defensive tackle A’Shawn Robinson and Green Bay Packers linebacker Clay Matthews.

Roughing the passer is a dangerous play and it’s good to see NFL officials taking steps to protect quarterbacks. Hopefully this trend will continue and we’ll see fewer ejections for roughing the passer as the season goes on.

In 2017, there were a total of roughing the passer penalties called in the NFL. Of those, nine were assessed against defensive players, resulting in ejections. Here is a list of the roughing the passer penalties that were flagged and resulted in an ejection during the 2017 NFL season:

-Week 1: Clay Matthews (GB)
-Week 2: Von Miller (DEN)
-Week 8: Calais Campbell (JAX)
-Week 10: William Gholston (TB)
-Week 13: Dontari Poe (ATL)
-Week 14: Leonard Williams (NYJ)
-Week 15: Robert Quinn (MIA)
-Week 16: Mario Addison (CAR)
-Week 17: Michael Bennett (SEA)

NFL Roughing Ejections

This season, the NFL has seen a sharp increase in the number of roughing the passer penalties and ejections. In the first four weeks of the season, there were a total of eight roughing the passer penalties called, resulting in two ejections. The most recent incident occurred in Week 4 when Cincinnati Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict was ejected for hitting Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck in the head and neck area.

While it is still early in the season, this trend is cause for concern among players, coaches, and fans alike. Many believe that these penalties are being called too harshly and that they are impacting the game in a negative way. Some have even suggested that the NFL is becoming too soft and that these roughing the passer penalties are proof of that.

Mo’ne Davis Hampton, Mo’ne Davis, who hurled her way into the annals of the Little League World Series and the hearts of the sports world as a pitcher for the Taney Dragons of South Philadelphia four years ago, has decided she will attend Hampton University next fall.

“It’s a big relief,” said Davis, who will play softball at Hampton. “A lot of people have been asking me where I was going. It feels great to finally commit somewhere. It just feels so good.”

Davis, who used a 70 mph-plus fastball to become the first girl to win a Little League World Series game as a pitcher and the first girl to toss a shutout in Little League postseason history, selected Hampton over Bethune-Cookman University, Southern University, Coppin State University and the University of Pennsylvania. She signed a national letter of intent with Hampton on Tuesday.

“The campus is beautiful,” said Davis, who was interviewed Tuesday. “The girls on the team are amazing. The coaches are amazing. It just kind of felt like home, which is what you look for in a school. Everything felt right. Since I’m spending my next four years there, I have to be comfortable.”

Hampton’s proximity to Philadelphia pleases her mother, Lakeisha Williams.

Manchester City F.C. Vs Everton: Aguero, De Bruyne Close To Man City Return, Says Guardiola

Manchester City F.C. Vs Everton: Aguero, De Bruyne Close To Man City Return, Says Guardiola, Sergio Aguero and Kevin De Bruyne are both ready to make comebacks for Manchester City as their injury-stretched squad attempts to cope with the busy December fixture list.

  Manchester City F.C. Vs Everton: Aguero, De Bruyne Close To Man City Return, Says Guardiola

Pep Guardiola will make a late decision as to whether to include both players in his squad for Saturday’s Premier League home game against Everton, but the key thing for the manager is the fact that his injury troubles are beginning to ease.

Guardiola claimed he was down to 15 fit senior players for Wednesday’s 2-1 Champions League victory over Hoffenheim, and remains without a significant chunk of his squad going into the weekend.

Playmaker David Silva, full-back Benjamin Mendy and goalkeeper Claudio Bravo are longer-term absentees, while defenders John Stones and Danilo, plus midfielder Fernandinho, will have late fitness checks before Guardiola takes a decision on whether to include them.

Aguero, City’s 12-goal leading scorer, is in contention, though, having missed their past four matches with a groin problem.

Belgium midfielder De Bruyne is also back in full training after being restricted to just two starts this season because of two separate knee injuries.

He suffered ligament damage to his knee in August, and although he returned in October, he then injured his left knee during the Carabao Cup win over Fulham on November 1.

Guardiola is hopeful on both players, saying of Aguero: “He did the last two training sessions, including on Thursday, and he has no pain in his injury so we’ll decide.

“Kevin is in the same situation as Sergio. Yesterday he trained with no pain, we will see.”

The win over Hoffenheim enabled City to get back on track after the disappointment of seeing their 15-match unbeaten start to the Premier League season end in a 2-0 defeat at Chelsea last Saturday.

Guardiola’s priority now, though, is to reassert themselves domestically, having fallen a point behind new leaders Liverpool in the English title race.

India Vs Pakistan

June 18, 2017 by · Comments Off on India Vs Pakistan 

India Vs Pakistan, Pakistan pulled off a dramatic win over defending champions India in the finals of the Champions Trophy. With this win, Pakistan won the coveted title for the first time in their cricketing history. After winning the toss, Indian skipper Virat Kohli chose to bowl first on a flat deck and that proved to be the undoing. The Indian bowlers had nothing much to exploit upon as the opposition batsman made merry on a belter of a wicket. Fakhar Zaman was the star of the show with a brilliant hundred while Mohammad Amir did the damage with the ball.

Fakhar Zaman was ably supported by Azhar Ali and together they forged the second successive opening stand of more than hundred. The other batsman too chipped in well. However, the Indian bowlers were taken to the cleaners as most of them went for more than seven runs per over. When India came out to bat, the early strikes by Mohammad Amir sealed the deal as India never got going. In the end, chasing a target of 339, India folded up for just 150.

Congratulations Pakistan on a really comprehensive victory today. Well played, deserved winners and a great result for Pakistan cricket.

Meanwhile, after this win, the record between the two sides in ICC tournaments stands at 13 (India)-3 (Pakistan). Pakistan’s journey to the finals has been anything but steady. But despite getting beaten by India in the opening match they showed brilliant resilience in the finals to pick up the win.
