Really, it happens to all teams. 

Last night watching the Vikes/Pack, there were 2 or 3 instances during the last two Pack drives where a Minnesota defensive player shot a gap.  In each instance, the defender was even with or even past the offensive lineman and you could clearly see an arm bar across his chest.  The refs never threw the laundry.  Granted, it was during the hurry-up/2:00 drill and action was happening fast and furious, but that's really no excuse.  In each instance, it should've been pretty clear and easy for the referee to see.

It's clear to me that the league has de-emphasized this penalty to the point of ridiculousness.

You almost have to tackle a guy and then drag him around by his face mask to get called.

"Dreith said I hit Sipe too hard. I hit him as hard as I could. Brian has a chance to go out of bounds and he decides not to. He knows I'm going to hit him. And I do. History."
