I'm interested in seeing how this plays out.

    Come on Pappy, you should know better than that. This is the internet. No matter what happens, both sides claim victory.

    The referee said that you hit Brian Sipe too hard. Did you hit him too hard?

    When I saw this live I didn't think it was off-sides but the ref threw the flag anyway. Highsmith's getoff is crazy quick;

    It's crazy.

    In slow-mo, I think he starts moving before the ball is snapped. But I'm not sure he crosses the LoS.

    I can see how they would have called this a penalty on the field.

    Hopefully Highsmith ends up being very good and we have the "problem" of trying to afford two very good pass rushers in a few years.

    Defensive guys move all the time prior to the snap. He wasn't in the neutral zone before the ball moved. With sensors now in the ball and player I would love to see how this looks in tracking software.

    I agree, but he's so close to the line and refs aren't looking in slo-mo.

    He may have been offside or onside. He starts on the nose of the football, so he doesn't have to move far for it to be off.

    The lines are also moving up and to the left. Which makes Highsmith look further away from the LoS than he would be from straight on.

    I think his feet are onside for sure. But his helmet? Not sure.

    It's not like refs are always right, but they would have had a better angle on this one.

    And you probably take a few of these if it means he's getting that good a jump all day.

    Looks like he'll be another good OLB for us.
