I like the tuck rule being eliminated. Makes sense to me as it is a judgemnt call anyway. QB gets hit and the ball comes out....fumble. Cut and Dry

It's official ... Brady is no longer the NFL darling. :D

There's a rule that's been around for a decade too long.

Dumbest rule at the time. So many obvious non-pass motions called a pass. About time this rule was taken back. Still doesn't offset the Helmet rule though.

if the helmet rule is as explained then its not different then a defensive player lowering his helmet to hit someone.
Seems they will give the ball carrier a lot of leway in this regard. It wont ever be called on the goal line or in short yardage situations.

It's only ever going to be called when Bill Leavy officiates a Giants game...

I'm still amazed how the ref even knew that it was in the rule book. Rather impressive actually.
