These penalties are getting ridiculous

This lowering the head rule is making the game unwatchable.

 

They over call it in pre-season.  It will be called but onlyin  more egregious cases in the regular season.

Not sure about that rule. Does it apply to RBs as well? If not then why?

 

Anyone willingly lowering head to make contact, notably in the open field.  Not persons in defenseless positions.

This new helmet rule stinks.

 

It's not going away, but will lessen in regular season.

So every time a RB lowers their head, it’s a penalty?

 

Not if it is determined they are in defenseless or protecting themselves mode. Otherwise, yes.

So basically they promise it won’t be an issue and we’re supposed to believe it?

 

Im sorry I’m all for the launching aspect of it but Hairston barely went into him. Linemen take harder hits than this. Again I understand the reason for the rule but making rules that don’t make sense will hurt the game.

It will make players not bend way over and hit with their head anymore.  It hurts the team. The NFL wants it completely out of the game.

Apparently, when they institute a new rule, they over-enforce it in the preseason then lighten up in the regular season. Helps players and coaches get a good idea of what they're looking for with that rule.
