relation to other rules
Relation to Other Rules
  • Roughing the quarterback
  • Pass interference
  • Roughing the kicker
  • Kick-catch interference (KCI)
what s the difference
What’s the Difference?
  • Like targeting, this is more about defining what a defenseless player is
  • However, in determining between one of the other rules or hit on a defenseless player, there are things to consider
what s the difference1
What’s the Difference?
  • For a hit on a defenseless player, the act must go beyond normal actions of the game
  • Look for the “blow up” hit
  • PI: is the defender just trying to interfere, or is he trying to “blow up” the receiver??
  • Roughing the passer: is the rusher merely late getting to the passer, or is coming in unnecessarily hard after the pass
targeting vs defenseless player
Targeting vs. Defenseless Player
  • While similar in intent of protection of players going “beyond making a legal tackle, legal block or playing the ball”, targeting is specifically aiming for the head
  • Defenseless player will be below the head/neck area, yet still hits in accordance with “beyond legal tackle, block or playing the ball”
enforcement
Enforcement
  • If you’re on the fence about defenseless player, but 100% certain of one of the other fouls (roughing passer, PI, etc.) then go with the other foul
  • Penalty is a personal foul, 15 yards
flagrant
Flagrant
  • All hits on defenseless players are not flagrant
  • With flagrant fouls, you must be 100% certain the player had malicious intent
  • Flagrant foul and ejection should be a crew call- if another official can’t back up flagrant, you don’t have it
  • Film should back it up without a doubt as well
summary
Summary
  • Defenseless player is defined in 2-32-16
  • Defenseless player goes beyond other personal foul calls
  • Different than targeting
  • Enforcement is personal foul
  • Flagrant should be a crew call
