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.

    • I hope in 3-5 years../that’s where they actually see them...as Love is leading the Colts to a 2nd Super Bowl win.
    • I have not been for March Madness...but I have heard the weekend before (conference tourneys) are a great time to go as well.
    • The Nashville draft was free...so I would assume Vegas will be...especially with it being on the strip.   If it’s anything like Nashville...there will be a virtual waiting room that opens when the gates open for the Draft Experience that day (typically around noon). You have to be in the area to enter on the app...and do it immediately. My brother-in-law somehow got #15 the first day. A set number of people will be allowed into the front section to watch...behind the Super fans and media.    I am very intrigued to see how Vegas does this. It’s going to be incredibly crowded.  
    • Keep telling yourself you're winning these arguments with me.   Keep repeating it to yourself.    Over and over.   Because that's realy what this battle is all about.     You refuse to admit you're wrong -- ever.   I noticed you didn't do this 5 months ago when the pre-season game was played.    You could've done this back then.    And you could've shown me the video of the game.   5 months ago. But what?     It didn't occur to you then?      It only occurs to you now?    5 months later?   After I've publicly ripped you on this multiple times.   By the way,  the game wasn't in Indy.    It was on the road.    I don't believe it was shown in Indy.      But whatever.     You've got no credibility with me.    None.    You've blown that over and over and over again.....         LOL and good luck....   p.s. --- by the way,  you've already admitted to me that there are regular season games that you haven't seen.    You said, you're traveling.   On a plane or out of the country.     Why aren't you recording them and watching them later?    Why should you EVER miss a game?    And yet,  you said you've missed games.   So, which is it?    Maybe you didn't have SlingBox until recently?    I don't know, and I don't care.    It's just another inconsistancy that I've caught you in.    There are too many of those to count.   Again....   LOL and good luck!  
    • As I said before,  in fact, my previous post,   I've been calling you out on this repeatedly for five months.    And only NOW are you claiming Slingbox.    You could've said it in Aug/Sept.    You could've said it during the season.    But now,  after repeated call outs,  NOW you come up with Slingbox.     Sorry,   you may fool others here with your nonsense,  but I'm wise to you.    And I publicly call you on it over and over.   As for being technologiy challenged,  I am.   I don't know how to use the archive function here to find your posts.    But even if I did,  I wouldn't waste my time.   I've spent plenty of time writing long posts to you that you casually dismiss without reading.    You even admit to not reading them,  they're too long for you.    So, sorry,  I'm not wasting my time on you -- period.   The only opinion you truly value is.....   yours.    And anyone who agrees with you.   That's it.   Anyone who opposes you is an enemy and is treated as one.    Fine.   But I can go toe to toe as much as you like.   But Nadine would prefer us NOT to try for a love-connection.   We should avoid each other as much as possible.    Your call....   Good luck....
