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.

    • I would accept it in a heartbeat. Hilton doesn't offer anything anymore without Luck. Great QB with him, average at best without him. Can easily have a good WR core with Pascal, Pittman, Marcus Johnson, Patmon and Parris Campbell in his role when he returns. Harris will be a speed threat until Campbell returns IMO.   To @Superman, @DougDew, and yourself, good GMs trade their players before they decline and lose their worth. Would you rather get nothing for Hilton? I trust Ballard will do something with that pick and Hilton has done well here. However, it's time to replace him now, and we have plenty of young WR's to take his place.
    • I'm not questioning they are good in pass protection, but what is Rivers' release time compared to JB and even to Luck.  Snap to release.  It probably gotten faster as the season has progressed.   Its probably the quickest pace we've had here since Manning.   How does that (likely) reality impact those statistical rankings?
    • Wow, does anyone even look at what Hilton is doing out there?  Didn’t he just catch a TD that was called back?  Isn’t he still being game planned by other teams?   Just because he and Rivers don’t have the chemistry down, doesn’t make your best WR expendable.  Seriously, some comments on this board make me wonder if people are watching the games or just reading the box score.  
    • No one! Fountain is another Colts practice squad fan favorite, that’s it. He hasn’t done anything to warrant the love fest this forum has for him
