Btw, I was looking at SB XXVI (amazing game).

And realized there has been some pretty significant rules changes between then and now:

What on earth was that "if a receiver is forced out of bounds while in the air, and he would have come down in bounds had he not been pushed, then it's a catch" rule ?!!?! Glad we got rid of that one!
It came up 2 times on the Art-Monk-called-back-TD-drive, feels pretty insane when you've never heard of it...
Just think, had that been the rule back in the 80's, there would've been a lot of much closer games, if not completely different outcomes in games, because I do remember that rule. And I think the last TD in Super Bowl XVII was such a TD, because Theismann kind of threw it to the side of the end zone and I think it might have been Alvin Garrett that caught the pass and was forced out of bounce, but still had the TD to count.

In Super Bowl XXVI, there were a lot of "catches" that wouldn't have been catches today. I remember one low pass Rypien threw to Byner that was called a catch and there was no way that would've been called a catch in today's game. Of course, there were also a lot of times where roughing the passer probably would've been called on the Redskins defense as well that wasn't called. The game was definitely called much more loosely back then!

It just feels so funny now, to hear the ref say "...he would have come down in bounds..." ... yeah and if there was no defender he would have scored a 90 yards TD, so let's give him 7 points?
With all the elements required to call a catch nowadays, having such a subjective rule sounds crazy.

I know! Kind of like, "How can you predict the future ref? Maybe he swings one of his legs out a little too much and the foot lands on the white?"

Haha yes. And it also makes it sound like it was sooo unfair of the defender to push the receiver out of bounds... like, was he suppose to just stand there and watch him make the catch in bounds?

Looks like Green bay is going to give Rodgers a new contract.

Re: Around the NFL Off season thread 1.0

The #Broncos are in talks to trade for #Redskins S Su’a Cravens, sources say. They are the team most interested and the likely landing spot for the talented former 2nd rounder, though no deal is done yet

Re: Around the NFL Off season thread 1.0

In Other Broncos news, they could be dumping Aqib Talib in order to make room for a big QB signing:

Denver Broncos CB Aqub Talib's Job In Jeopardy?

Hhhmmm....Maybe Denver sends Talib to Washington for Su'a Cravens, moves Roby to CB and Su'a takes Roby's place? Maybe that is what the deal is for?

I remember when they changed that rule, I had visions of CB's making glorious boundary hits on the WRs, jarring them out of bounds and rattling his cage.

Never really materialized as part of the game,then concussion concerns came in, and it was nothing but a lost wish.
