REPLY: Just remember that a defensive linebacker might just be on the line of scrimmage at the snap--especially if he's blitzing. That would make him fair game to a BBW as long as he's in the FBZ and all the other requirements are met. By NF definition, a defense player is on the line of scrimmage if he is within 1 yard of his LOS at the snap (see NF 2-24-3). I'm sure that's what BBR was suggesting, but I don't want anyone misunderstnding it.
