    Why do physical corners away with so much holding?



    While watching the Niners/Hawks game they started showing highlights of R. Sherman and on every play he is pushing the WRs around.
    It seems that once a CB get the term "physical" attached to them the refs let them get away with way too much.

    Because they are "physical?"

    I liken this to football in general; if a person is "known for something" they can get away with it. If not, and they step outside of their boundaries, there are consequences. This goes for coaches and players.

    Seahawks corners play like its the 70's and somehow don't get flagged. It's awesome to watch

    I love the way that the Seahawks defense plays. Their only fault is. It getting off the field because they give up a lot of third down conversions. I really like their defensive coordinator. They also have a lot of speed on their d which is something I wish the ravens had more of.

    Pretty sure Seattle has one of the bet 3 and out teams in the league... Like the 2nd best.

    That is how fucking Cary Williams and Jimmy Smith who both stand at 6'2 should play, I don't get all this playing off BS, they need to be more physical. Not sure if that's Dean Pees, the DB coach, or the players them selves.

    Maybe because what you describe here isn't holding.

    When a WR tries to make a cut and the CB is holding his shoulder pad I believe that counts as holding. All done past five yards.

    I think it's a problem when you have so many people saying "they play corner like it's the 70s".

    no doubt they were getting away with a lot of grabbing pushing and running the receiver out of bounds. very physical play and no flags. and slightly OT, I forgot how horrible Alex Smith can look at times

    Beyond this five-yard limitation, a defender may use his hands or arms ONLY to defend or protect himself against impending contact caused by a receiver. In such reaction, the defender may not contact a receiver who attempts to take a path to evade him.

    Yeah it may not be holding, but it should be illegal contact at least.

    The OP didn't say after 5 yards though. And I watched the game myself and saw nothing wrong with the DB play. In fact, it looked pretty damn good.

    I did see corners bumping and grabbing 15-20 yards down the field last night on both sides. It was ridiculous. Don;t get me wrong, I like the style of play. But the rules are the rules and you have to call it the same for every game, team and player.

    Well I didn't think I had to say after five yards.

    I'm pretty sure most on here know that you can be physical within five. I've watched four Seattle games this year and there CBs are pushing/holding the entire way through the route.
    It's obviously looks good when a CB just manhandles a WR like that, but it's against the rules.
