Last Monday night game, Carolina's Quarterback Cam Newton took off on a run and while he was is the motion of sliding, a player from the Redskins dove towards Newton creating helmet to helmet contact. Cam Newton reacted by throwing the ball and was penalized for an Unsportsmanlike rather than getting the unnecessary roughness call. Which got me thinking, what if this exact scenario happened to a Tom Brady or Eli Manning? Penalties are costly down the stretch of the season, and equal representation of the rule must go into effect to avoid more controversy.
