    I'm still trying to figure out what Casey did wrong in that sack. Are players not allowed to touch QB's below the knees?

    im def concerned about pass protection. I think the OL and coaching staff has put way too much time running the ball in practice during team periods.

    The 8 sacks are a concern , our Top corner FA getting beat is a concern, the team looking like they are "Drinking the Kool Aid" on all of this pre-season hype is a concern. But they are all fixable.

    Whats bothering me from the week 1 Pre-Season game, are the f***ing refs. Those a**holes are already in mid season form or better yet , they are in "Every clots game against Titans" form. WTF was up with that no-flag on the Tanny helmet to helmet hit or the J. C. 99 call ( just to name a few )...

    Or the 2 horse collar tackles on Tanny.... Was a lot of no calls and bad calls. The bad call on J. Cassey was BS, big momentum killer. If called right they wouldn't have 7 on the board and would of saved the bad showing by Ryan till next week :)

    I copied the rule below...the refs have to decide whether the hit is flagrant or not. It does not say that every single hit below the knees is a penalty. The other part to the rule is the unrestricted path to the QB....I'm not sure Caesy's hit has flagrant or that he had an unrestricted path to the QB.
    1. No defensive player who has an unrestricted path to the quarterback may hit him flagrantly in the area of the knee(s) or below when approaching in any direction.

    I'm guessing on the Casey "low hit" call the ref thought Casey hit the QB in the lower legs as he was falling when in fact he hit the ground and then reached out and grabbed the QBs ankles and pulled him down. Easy mistake if the refs view was obstructed, I guess.

    Maybe we will get better calls in the next one ... can't wait to see the videos of the scuffles and fights in the joint practices this week. :D

    From what I saw, Casey never "hit" the QB...he landed on the ground and reached out and grabbed the QB by the ankles/lower legs.

    That rule basically says that you can't make a dirty play by purposely going low on somebody.

    When the blocker the whiffed on you pushes you down from behind, that's not unrestricted or your fault. I understand the refs are going to error on the side of caution, especially in the preseason, but it was still a bad call. Had 83 not pushed him down from behind, he was approaching above the waist.

    Truthfully, I don't mind that call being made in the preseason, because of player safety. Rather it was purposeful or flagrant or not, I wouldn't want to see Mariota take a blow to his knees in the next 3 weeks. Reality of that is really hit home watching the Lions lose one of their best pass rushers early in the 1st quarter to a lower leg injury (although, it was a non-contact injury), looked like he likely broke his leg or ankle, though.
