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.

    • Jimmy G also had multiple games during the season where he had 300 and 400 yard games. Brisett only had 3 games with 300 yards and 8 games under 200. 
    • My hopes aren't up.  This is just a guess and prediction like everyone else.  My 1st choice is for Gruden to get the itch to move up for a QB and we can trade for Carr.  I'm just hoping Ballard does something to address the QB position.  If he doesn't then I will be crushed.  
    • People on this board talked about his deficiencies (including missing open guys) when we were 5-2 and winning. They were just drowned out by the JB fan club who could only muster lazy things like "winning is the only thing that matters"...  Bad is bad regardless if you're winning or losing. People are just less likely to point it out when you are winning.
    • Jimmy G made a lot of big passing plays during the season.. You missed the point. Even the elite QB don’t hit every pass every game. They miss open guys. They just make enough big plays to over come it.     
    • Well, trading back to get Burrow and additional picks would be nice.
