Welcome back to the Scouting Report, Team Blitzed! Week 2 of the NFL season is in the books and it was one of the most entertaining NFL Sundays in recent memory.
A quick recap:
Week 2 was the week of the wild finishes, as you already know from listening to the latest and greatest episode of Blitzed NFL Radio. The wildest finish of the them all goes to the most exciting ending in sports: the tie.
The Packers and Vikings made it two straight weeks of NFL games ending in participation trophies as the league is being slowly overrun by millennials. After Kirk Cousins threw what should have been a game ending interception late in the 4th quarter, a yellow flag changed the course of the entire game. Clay Matthews was called for roughing the passer after he…gently brought Cousins to the ground.
Every human with a functioning brain agreed that the call was horrible. The NFL, however, decided the catch rule isn’t pissing us off enough and we need to be dumbfounded by roughing the passer calls as well. Here’s how the NFL doubled down after the game:
Yep… That incredibly perplexing call at the end of the game, that nobody understood, will now literally become the blueprint for roughing the passer penalties in the NFL.
Fear not, Blitzed Fam. The Scout is here to un-muddy the waters and teach you how to rush the quarterback in 2018.
