What is a lunge from the ground? Falling from your knees into the QB? What if you're blocked into it? Is that worse than running straight at the guy? How many QB's are getting blown knees and ankles from being snatched below the knee?

I just can't see that one just because it happened to Brady.

Re: NFL Owners Pass Four New Player Safety Rules

I think these microprotecting rules are stupid. The reason they enacted the on-side rule is because "they were getting matchups there that they thought were dangerous." I mean jesus it's football! It's like they think it is possible to rule danger out of the game yet still allow them to run full speed into each other. Es stupido.

More new rule but these are playoff seeding. Also another onside kick rule.
Again i'm confused, wasn't an onside kick out of bounds put at like the 40 for the receiving team? Or am i relying on my knowledge of madden09 rules lol.

I've never seen any player get hurt on an onside kick in my life.



No wedge makes no sense but it can be worked around.

Now Tom Brady is officially a wuss. He has a "don't touch me" rule in his name.
I'm not sure Brady has anything to do with the rule himself. It's the owners that are voting on this silly crap. I'm not even sure what the rule is. Wasn't there already a rule put it when Carson Palmer got hurt?

I believe it was put where it went out on an onside kick.

Re: NFL Owners Pass Four New Player Safety Rules

I'm pretty sure there was, it just got de-emphasized

Also, in defense of banning the wedge...someone was going to get killed busting up wedges. I've seen Mike Sellers just throw his body into the collective knees of the blockers in a wedge, that's just dangerous for everyone involved. I actually like the outlawing of the wedge.

Re: NFL Owners Pass Four New Player Safety Rules

Also it is important to note not many teams use a wedge, we are one of the few teams that do. It will be interesting to see how this rule affects our performance. Rock was one of the top kick returners in the NFL for the last couple years, how will wedgeless Rock and the rest of Danny Smith's boys fair?

This was all because of Brady and the crybaby/whinny NE fans. I just hope Darth Hoody quits bitching about how the whole league is against him and his team after this.
