NFL Fans Debating If Hit On Nick Chubb Should Be Illegal

5 Min Read

NFL fans are debating whether a hit on Cleveland Browns running back Nick Chubb should be illegal. The hit occurred during the Browns’ Week 1 game against the Carolina Panthers. Panthers linebacker Shaq Thompson hit Chubb low in the thigh, which caused Chubb to suffer a knee injury.

Chubb was forced to miss the Browns’ Week 2 game against the New York Jets, but he is expected to return to the lineup in Week 3.

The hit on Chubb has sparked a debate about whether such hits should be illegal. Some fans believe that the hit was dangerous and that it should be penalized. Others believe that the hit was legal and that it is part of the game.

The NFL has a rule in place that prohibits defenders from hitting blockers below the waist. However, the rule is difficult to enforce, as it is often difficult to tell if a defender intentionally hit a blocker low.

The NFL could make the rule easier to enforce by using technology to help referees identify and penalize defenders who hit blockers low. However, some fans believe that would make the game too soft.

The debate about whether the hit on Chubb should be illegal is likely to continue. There is no easy answer, and there are valid arguments on both sides.

Here are some of the arguments for and against making the hit on Chubb illegal:

Arguments for making the hit illegal:

  • The hit was dangerous and could have caused a serious injury to Chubb.
  • The hit was unnecessary, as Chubb was already down.
  • The hit sets a bad precedent and could encourage other defenders to hit players low.

Arguments against making the hit illegal:

  • The hit was legal under the current rules.
  • The hit is part of the game, and players should be expected to take hard hits.
  • Making the hit illegal would make the game too soft.

Ultimately, the decision of whether or not to make the hit on Chubb illegal is up to the NFL. The NFL will need to weigh the arguments on both sides and make a decision that is in the best interests of the game.
