I like the new rules! I was getting tierd of the endzone dancing. I wish they would fix OT. So you don't lose by a coin toss.

What changes would you make to fix OT? I think if you win the coin toss you can't win on a field goal on the first drive. You have to win by a touchdown

Matty:

I'm in the process of silk screening a bunch of them in my basement as we speak.

They're on sale this week. You get two for nothing.

But only as long as supplies last!

another rule change is stricter enforcment of illegal contact and pass interference on the DB's. hopefully William's defenses don't require bump and run coverages.

I also think a better way to have changed the instant replay rules would be to allow a team to keep their challenges that r upheld. plus I can't remember who suggested it on tv, but I also like the idea of having three officials in 3 different booths being the reviewers of instant replay and that way it's not just in one person's(who's on the field with the players and maybe even possibly swayed by the fans) hands.

I agree about the review stuff. I've always wondered why they have the ref go "under the hood" like that on the field. It can't be the best way to watch replays. Why not have one (or more) reviewers in a booth, where that's their only job? Isn't that the way the NHL does it?

As for the restrictions on DBs, I think Williams plays a lot of complex cover-2 zone, so he may not require as much bump and run coverage. I think this will hurt the cowboys way more. I thought their DBs held a TON last season. But in any event, this will help our receivers, just like everybody else.

It bothers me a bit that the NFL is constantly trying to set it's rules after listening to uneducated football fans and press complain about low scoring...saying the game is boring. I think games are at their best when the defense and offense are evenly getting the best of each other. A defense-less 54-49 score game is boring to me. It is like the probowl game.
With that said, I am ok with the league looking to enforce the the no contact rule after 5 yards on receivers...as long as it equal. Receivers constantly over the years get away with pushing off the CB's right before they make their cut or when the ball is in the air(Michael Irvin made a career out of it).
Holding by the offensive lineman occurs on almost every play and is almost never called fairly.
The rules need to be evenly enforced for the offense and defense.
The League needs to stop creating/changing rules to favor the offense so the short attention span fan will enjoy the game. You know the fan I am talking about, the one that only cheers and pays attention when a touchdown is scored. Then proceeds to ignore the rest of the game.

I completely agree and hope to see less recievers being able to push off especially since the enforcement of the illegal contact goes heavily in their favor(Imagine how different Moss would have to play.) How much do u guys think this will change players like Ty Law and even Champ's production? that trade's looking even better to me after this rule change. and like others, including ESPN, mentioned, the expanded practice squads seems almost like it was passed for coaches like Gibbs.

I was thinking that too, skins fan. If it's real hard to play CB, no matter who you are, than overpaying for Champ was a mistake for Denver.

But maybe Champ will be one of the few corners who can still cover! Than he may pay off.
