We saw 1st hand last night how the NFL's new roughing the passer penalty has really jumped the shark. We all have seen the horrible calls on Clay Matthews over the 1st few weeks of the season and last night it happened to Gerald McCoy and Jason Pierre-Paul. You know things are getting bad when quarterbacks themselves are ripping the rule. That is what Joe Theismann did. It might be warranted after a Dolphins defensive end tore his ACL trying to avoid one of these ridiculous penalties on Sunday. Check it all out below.
