    But for now we can console ourselves with this fact-

        No more awkward than linemen in their three point stance

          no one seems to get that besides u and me

          • This may be a dumb question but how many injuries did players suffer from RB's leading with the crown? From what I understand Fisher said there were about 6 instances last year that were plays that would have been penalized.....In those instances I'd like to know how many players were actually hurt.

            I know this is about player safety but I really don't recall this being a major issue that causes many injuries. I may be wrong but if someone has the numbers....I'm willing to listen. Honestly it sounds like a rule to appease the defenders who had the rule brought down upon them also.

              Not to mention the defenseless receiver calls. And QB blow to the head calls. And pass interference calls.

                It's not a dumb question and I don't know the answer. But I am pretty sure they have stats on it, just like they do on kickoffs. At some point some mmedia head will think to ask and we'll know.

                  The other day ESPN refered to this as the Trent Richardson Rule because of the hit you can see at the 0:29 mark of this video.

                  But, I say again. Lowering the crown of your helmet has ALWAYS been illegal in the NFL. They are simply making it a point of emphasis to include offensive players in the enforcement.

                    I hope they do ask it soon cause I'm interested in hearing the statistics.

                      Understandable. I'm over the cap debacle. Was it annoying? Yeah, but I've come to accept a few things on the issue.

                      1.) The NFL does not operate the same as most businesses as evidenced by many of the actions and events it practices.
                      2.) Therefore, with consensus, pretty much anything passed can be legal as justified by the vague nature of the 'spirit of competition'.
                      3.) The competition committee acted within NFL guidelines to reduce the cap space of both franchises.
                      4.) It wasn't completely unwarranted. It's not like Snyder and Jones are saints in this scenario. They did, in fact, try to gain a competitive advantage in 2010 by manipulating the salary cap for future years to a greater extent than most other teams.

                      Those are the main points... I could go on, but I think it's clear here and no one here would probably debate otherwise.

                      But back to the topic... from what I can infer is that this rule, while it may annoyingly slow the pace of some games, actually does a lot to address a sizeable issue with chronic traumatic encephalopathy.

                      In the end, it will probably work out just like any other new rule.
                      Dude, if you want to troll around & talk smack, maybe wait until your team stops perennially sucking? Or is the off-season your golden window of opportunity for that? Seriously, piss off.

                        Ease up, he wasn't talking smack, he was responding to something I said.

                          I don't see this working out well. The officials have enough to worry about.
                          Worst rule ever

                              • it's nuts really. look at any vintage NFL film footage. They use to Mack truck defenders and LBs use to kill QBs.

                                where did that League go to?
