For how odd this seems, it’s rather astonishing how often it occurs.
Now, the obvious explanation would be the lineman holding his stance while pass rushers feverishly run past him and throw his QB to the ground would be the lineman thinking someone was offsides. Yet, when you’re the only player on the field not moving, something’s not right.
That’s exactly what happened in the phenomenon’s latest incident where a Saskatchewan’s left tackle stayed in his cement shoes while the football he was supposed to be playing played out around him.
A lesson to all QBs – this is why you don’t get into beef with your lineman.
