    At our final meeting of the year, one of the clips generated considerable discussion about a potential Roughing the Passer (RPS).  This clip was from the Lemmonier Crew of 5 DVD under the Passing Game section, play 3.  Below is the interpretation from Dr. Bruce Maurer:

    I watched it a half dozen times.

    If he knocks him to the ground I have Roughing the Passer since he could have avoided the contact.

    If he does not knock him to the ground, then it is a "talk to:, then assess RPS if he does it again.

    He does not deliver a hard blow with his forearm or shoulder.
