Let me put it another way. You are Joe Burrow. I am *Jonathan Greenard. The ball is snapped. You have the ball in your hands. I take the ball away from you. We hear a whistle - and that down is over. You do not get any yardage. Repeat 3 more times and the ball goes over to my team. *or Jabari Zuniga ============ Now - let's pretend there is no such persons in the game named Jonathan Greenard and Jabari Zuniga. What happens then? Well - you saw what happened. Put Greenard and Zuniga in and Burrow doesn't have the ball and their offense cannot function. That is the reality of the situation.
