Your football experience aside, there's just no reason to change the rule that requires a referee to penalize a blow to a QB's head. And don't tell me that there should be some judgment as to whether it might potentially cause an injury. The league is telling rushers to keep their damn hand off the QB's head and they're right. No judgement needed here, and no assault on integrity either.

I'm also agreeing the league's attempt to limit the devastating hits receivers take as they receive the ball. Don't know whether their method is absolutely right, but I applaud their attempt at the killer "gangsta" hits by defensive players more intent on being a highlight on ESPN than actually making a good tackle. They've got to get rid of the headhunters for the good of the game, don't even tell me about integrity.

As to helmet to helmet blows what I's seeing is that the refs almost always get it right. I know that there may be time the offensive player seems to lower his head and contributes to the helmet to helmet contact, but I'll run the risk of getting call wrong over continuing the epidemic of brain injuries that might kill football long before the lack of integrity you're worried about.

As to your assertion that a quiet referee is the best referee, you're just absolutely wrong. The best referee is the one that gets the call right, not the one who eats his whistle...
We'll just agree to disagree.

I've never been a fan of Alex Smith because he's had so many chances and really has not had success until last season, but a QB-friendly system like Reid ran in Philly could mask Smith's inabilities.

Smith is likely better than any other FA or draft options this year. Bad QB year after last year's jackpot class.

He's a giant upgrade over Cassel and Brady Quinn, the worst QB in the NFL.

Re: Around the NFL Off - Season style.

Toler is an injury time out waiting to happen, we already have Merriweather for that.
