Not only was the victim of his hit facing him, but Tate's arm, shoulder and helmet all arrived at the same time since he was running FORWARD into Lee. This is a legal crack back block by definition.

Typically you see this type of block when a wide receiver goes in motion back toward the offense and a sweep is run to his side. The block is legal if he hits the defense from the front and above the waist.

They need to remove all "hitting" from the game and then there wouldn't be anymore confusion.

Not sure what the NFL wants these guys to do. They recruit these huge guys that are ultra fast, train them to hit like freight trains all the way through college and then at the NFL level, they tell them to forget what they learned. Wierd.
