No, no exaggeration at all!!
Should have said NFL 'secondary' because beyond 5 yards little more than casual 'bumping' can get you a flag.
as much as you please ,but there is a reason for the ridiculous passing stats since the implementation of the Blunt rule.
The Patriots pushed the boundaries of the Blunt Rule against the Colts by getting physical with Marvin Harrison recently & Manning,Colts organization ,Harrison, Colts fans,etc.....all whined & the NFL all but put an end to much contact in the secondary. Receivers run routes absolutely UNTOUCHED a majority of the time.
