For offensive players, namely wideouts, to grab the defensive players jersey to gain postion? Also why can running backs stiff arm your facemask?

When the defense does this they crucify them...

its still pass interference if the offensive player grabs the defensive player

also its only illegal if the player grabs the facemask, if he just touches it with an open palm its ok on both sides of the ball

offensive players usually get the benefit of the doubt

more often than not a no-call is because both players were battling with contact or its a make up for a non call earlier in the game

It is a penalty for a WR to gradb a jersey it just is not called as much. As for RBs they can stiffarm but they can no longer twist the mask. Rule change It think last season mainly because of LT who made a career from turning masks and breaking tackles

Different in the lines too. If an Olineman uses the facemask to 'steer' the defender, grab or not, it is illegal - hands to the face. Same goes for the Dlinman, but that call is generally 99% an Oline penalty.

I think they have OC problems more then QB problems . Just my opinion but that line up then get up to get the play is horrible . The QB really has no time to scan the defense properly IMO , they have more problems than that but it iritates me like crazy .

The D did great, considering the only TD Florida had was a cheap one. It doesn't matter how your D does if your offense can't score.
