I think this rule will help him as a runner. D-players cant try to blow up RB's anymore. ALFMO is difficult to tackle straight up.

My main concern is with the refs and how they will decide to enforce this rule. I feel any big hit delivered by a RB now will lead to a penalty.
I agree 100% with your last point. Just another way for the refs to screw us

Re: Around the NFL Off - Season style.

Garbage rule. Pure trash. Maybe the football is to heavy to carry as well, Nerf footballs are nice and safe. First time that penalty is called I'm unleash a mofo heard round the world.

Re: Around the NFL Off - Season style.

I really don't see this new helmet rule as being a big deal.

They're trying to eliminate blatant use of the helmet in the open field, which doesn't happen all that often.

I think I heard that there were 30 or so plays last year that would have been flagged under this rule. So in a total of 256 regular season games we're talking about 30 plays? It shouldn't have much of an impact at all. The league has to continue to protect players against head injuries, this rule is more window dressing than anything.

Re: Around the NFL Off - Season style.

If someone else chooses to start a new thread that's ok.

The Washington Times is reporting that Democrates in congress have presented a bill or passed a bill that will basically force the Redskins to change their team name.

Wonderfull.

In the event they have to I think the team should retire the whole kit and kaboodle. We have the Wash Caps (red, white, and blue), the Wash Nats (red, white, and blue), and we have the Wash Wiz (red, white, and blue). I thin DS should purchase the Wash Federals name and change the colors to red, white, and blue.

We'll look an awful lot like the Giants and the Pats.

Why can't football be played on Rosh Hashanah?

They play on Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve and occasionally Christmas Day (2011).

The government can't make you change your name. But it can remove trademark protection.
