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.

    • Could be Aaron Rodgers... Let's try an "A"
    • I mean... we were 7-9. I get that we have high expectations, but sometimes you see teams have to be bottom feeders for several years before they can start sniffing sustained success (see: the 49ers). If we imagine that we'd lost Luck at the start of the Ballard era I imagine we'd be looking at our team in a much different light. We probably would not have reached the playoffs any of those years.    Ballard inherited a bad, aging roster from Grigson and I felt right away this would be a 3 year project minimum before we were competitive. Well it only took two years and going into that year 3 we looked so promising. Then BAM Luck retires.    Luck's impact on this team is enough that it certainly changes our team's outlook when he's gone. A 3 year rebuild turns into what? 5? And honestly? That's where I think we are. We were a few missed kicks, late interceptions away from the post season this year already. With the cap we have, and the draft stock we carry, as long as we can improve our QB situation, the rest of our roster is primed to continue to grow for a couple more years before we really have to start worrying about cap.    So with that said... please don't retire Anthony Constonso!  My heart may not be able to handle the setback.
    • For me the main thing I can't get over with Fromm is not the arm strength althought I think you can see it in certain situations. The main things I dislike and I think will limit him in the league are: -pocket presence - it's the worst from anybody in this class. It's horrible. He is statuesque in the pocket and has no feel or vision or ability to even try to avoid rusher unless it's the most obvious of situations, he doesn't step into the pocket, he doesn't sidestep rusher...he would just stay in there and try to deliver the ball from the platform he's initially dropped to.  -inability to playmake - this ties into the pocket presence and armstrenght weaknesses too. Very little ability to make plays out of structure. If the pocket breaks, he's usually done, doesn't escape collapsing pockets and if it's one of the obvious cases where he actually sees it he doesn't have the armstrenght to make plays on the run and off platform.   I love a lot of the other things about him(leadership, accuracy on short to intermediate throws, anticipation, reading the field, smarts and command of the offense at the LOS, adjustments), but in today's NFL when defensive linemen have such athletic freaks and OLines are struggling to protect the QBs, IMO having the ability to navigate the pocket when it's workable or to leave it and make plays out of it when it's collapsing is very important. My worry is that those are fatal weaknesses that will manifest themselves in him not being able to show off his best attributes simply because in the NFL nobody is working with prestine pockets.
    • Everyone calm down. Wouldn't it be more natural if he retired at half time of preseason week 3?
    • Just because Luck didn't have the arm of Matthew Stafford,  doesn't mean he didn't have well above average arm strength.        His arm strength is as good as Tom Brady, as Aaron Rodgers,  as Drew Brees and on and on....   Just because you strength isn't elite,  doesn't mean it isn't good enough....
