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

They sure haven’t called it as much on the backs.

I mean I get the idea of it but I think this could be called on almost every play. And when you have a penalty that can be called on every play the game loses.

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.

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

Can we get a look at Wilkins??

 

God yes, please.  I know he’s a rookie but he imo has the most potential out of everyone not named Mack and Turbin by far.......

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.

Other than Vinatieri and Simon, the whole team looks pretty awful. No WR separation, no running lanes being created by OL, little to pass rush on D, and too many penalties.

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.

If Luck comes out I expect Wilkins to come in.  Ravens aren’t the team to have blown assignments against.

Getting very little from the running game.  I'm afraid we may wish we still had Frank Gore.

 Could have drafted Guice, or Freeman.

It needs to be started at the Pop Warner Level then

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.

Guice could very well have been out for the year for us as well.

I'm hoping to never get this head umpire again. Whoever he is, he's terrible.

Yes this is true.  It is very hard for any player to change what he has done all his football life.

Exactly, and coaches can point to the NFL when teaching  'heads up' play. Bend from knees, not waist, eyes up, head off center.

    • Well if not this year then when. We need qb as soon as possible  if we want to compete against  Mahomes in January 
    • Yeah, other than Herbert I don't like any of the other QBs enough to take them at 13, so I'm starting to feel I'll be in the camp that would like to see someone like Bridgewater, Rivers, or Carr in a Colts uniform next season. Then we can draft a QB in the second round or later or continue to develop Kelly if we think he can be the guy one day. It's not really my "ideal" offseason persay, but I think it's my top choice right now. I don't want Love at 13 and Herbert will probably be gone.   I just think we have enough holes that we can still get better this season and not have our franchise QB in place. I'm not talking about waiting for one to magically show up, I just don't think he's going to be sitting there available at 13 this year. I'd love to be wrong, though. I have no idea what Ballard and Co. are thinking, but as a fan, going for a QB in FA and adding some talent to the roster would keep me content with the team for another season. 
    • I'm down with Kinlaw as the first pick.  Love in round 2 wouldn't be bad but IDK if he makes it that far simply because too many teams need QB's and will be reaching.  Reagor would help immediately.   I don't know enough about some of the FA's to comment on them.  Would rather have Ngakoue or Armstead than Clowney, but he would definitely help.  Like the resignings except I don't think we need Geathers anymore, either that or restructure his deal and tell him he's coming off the bench.
    • Love probably  won't  be there at 34. I'M hoping  constanzo comes back so we can focus on dl, we, and qb if we decide  to go that direction
