Roughing the passer

Green Bay Packer defensive lineman Charles Martin is shown being ejected by referee Jerry Markbreit in game against the Bears at Soldier Field. Martin was ejected for roughing quarterback Jim McMahon and suspended for two games, which was then the most severe penalty handed down for an on-the-field incident in Commissioner Pete Rozelle's 26 years as the NFL czar. McMahon missed the remainder of the season, although the Bears won the game 12-10.
