How The Packers Get Away With Holding

Not sure if this has been posted somewhere before on VMB, but I came across this today and thought it was fascinating (and a bit aggravating). How the Packers get away with holding on nearly every pass play:

Love how he mentions that Zimmer's defense is basically the only one that has learned how to fight through it. Still super annoying that they're clearly holding on every play and rarely get the flag.

Yeah, I posted this a while ago when the Vikings played the Packers earlier this year. Funny thing is, it seems like, as a whole, holding is not being called. I just re watched the last drive of the first half for the PIT/NE game and there were two obvious holds right in front of the refs that weren't called. The hold on Barr when Cam had his game ending TD run. It's just not being called this year for some reason.
