Re: what if this rule change were to happen...
no, hitting a WR's arms while the ball is in air would be called a PI
wrapping them up so they can't move is HOLDING...with or without the ball being thrown
they ARE different penalties, look it up yourself if you want...
if holding was legal, then all DBs would just tackle the WRs and pin them down on the ground at the LOS right when the ball is snapped
