Should the Chip Block be a personal foul?
Thinking out loud… Defensive Ends rush off the edge full speed with eyes focused on the Offensive Tackle. The Tackle knows this technique all to well. As he moves his body inside forcing the Pass Rusher outside setting up the perfect strike. The Pass Rusher is totally oblivious to the Running Back that creeped outside the Tackle, faking a Pass Route and ramming his inside shoulder pad & helmet into the unsuspecting Pass Rusher. Usually its a Rib shot, lots of time the head gets a taste too. I felt the pain in 1992-01. so have many NFL Pass Rushers today and the past. This is called a Chip Block. By NFL Rules a unprotected defenseless player is off limits, safety issue they say. I guess its just for Offensive Players. Its about protecting the QB and the WR, oh can’t forget RB, TE. The Chip Block, is a Cheap Shot. According to the interpretation of the NFL rules. just my opinion.
