Re: Around the NFL Off - Season style.

Here's a very telling stat of todays video game league. Matthew Stafford has basically thrown for 5,000 yards two years in a row. His name will be next to Dan Mariono's in the record books.

Wasn't that expected no matter who the commish was? Did anyone in 2006 expect the most popular sport in America with an extremely strong following expect the league to make less money 6 years later? Given the product you'd have to be pretty inept for that to happen. As NC Skins just stated...people keep coming back basically no matter what. I mean shit...given that clientele any company could increase profits.
You could argue that the league has not done anything so damaging, that would affect their profits and popularity. And what I have been trying to point out that a lot of the decisions made by RG are not made by JUST him. The Owners have a lot of saying on what happens in the league of course. I would say some of the ways that RG has executed/enforced these decisions by the owners are unpopular/wrong/etc.

I think the whole argument of the rising profits since Tagliabue is to counter the argument that Goodell is ruining the league. One could say that Goodell has done a good "caretaker" job, but still he has not/is not ruining the league so far as some argue. I think you make a good point about people coming back to football, I mean you saw that during the Replacement Ref situation.

The masses and the average fans I think enjoy the video game league. I guarantee that if we have had a defensive Super Bowl with a score of 10-7, people would be b*tching left and right about it.

Exactly and Stafford isn't even any good really.

Re: Around the NFL Off - Season style.

I think the Colts and Patriots are the to blame for this explosion of offensive firepower.

It was the Colts that pushed for the "no contact after 5 yards" rule after they lost to the Pats a couple of years ago in the playoffs. And then there's the Brady rule, where you basically can't touch a QB (definitely not Brady). Throw in the safety rules about hitting a defenseless receiver and you have the surge in offensive yards that we've seen in the past few seasons.

That rule actually makes sense because of the leg twisting back. Guys were getting their knees/ ankles blown out. I have no issue with that rule.

Yeah, the horse collar rule has an obvious safety component built in and thus is a good one.

The horse collar rule seems to me like one that got it right. It's a bad tackling practice that can do severe damage to a runner's knees and legs. I refuse to thank JJ, but if he's responsible, it's something I wont use against him.

How so? The rule was due to one of JJ's players (S-Roy Williams) injuring several players via the horse collar. The biggest one of the bunch happened to Terrell Owens when he played with the Eagles. If anything, we can thank Andy Reid for that rule.

This by far one of the finest posts I have ever read.

So does not hitting a QB in the knees but there seems to alot of complaning about that rule and Brady.There is still plenty of turning and twisting when tackeling and there weren't that many injuries from it.(yes some,not alot)I'd like to see a study and compare the horse collar to the new field turf and the knee and ankel injuries from that.

My only complain about the Brady rule, is that it happened to Carlson Palmer in a BIG WAY before it happened to Brady and nothing was done. Palmer was taken out in the playoffs by a Steeler d-lineman and I believe they lost that game.

Meanwhile, as soon as it happened to Brady, they basically implemented that rule the next offseason.

Yet five of you guys said you like the rule that stops a defender from making a certian type of tackel?Yes I'm old school I want hitting ...from the QB to the running backs to the Wr's hit them all I say!
These rules are coming from the owners to protect their investment.
