I'm normally a guy that fully supports reasonable efforts to reduce injuries in the NFL. These guys have become so big, muscular and fast that season ending injuries are an almost daily occurrence.

But the over protection of the QBs has gotten out of hand. There were several roughing calls today, including the one on Mathews, that would be comical if they weren't so unfair to the penalized player/team. Like most things the NFL pursues in earnest, the real motivation in this over empasis comes from cynical efforts to protect the revenue streams in a QB driven league.
