Colts Vs. Ravens Monday Night Football Preseason Game Thread

Recommended Posts

Hines takes a big shot pretty much every time he gets tackled. Worried about his longevity if he doesnt learn to protect himself.

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.

 

So the defensive player is just supposed to stand up and take a shot to his ribs.  They say they are going to call it against the RBs, but so far that has not been the case.

Yup, one thing I saw from his college tape was that he takes so many unnecessary hits.

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

That doesn’t the guys at the HS, NCAA, and NFL level who were taught to do it “wrong”

 

 

  should do what LL does with game changing rules and gradually enforce it

If it is with a helmet, the RB will get the flag.  Plus, the DB has to get low from knees, not the waist.

Not just RBs but every ball carrier will do it

Luck has to build up his chemistry with Rogers. They would both benefit from it.  He flashed open late on that last sack.

NFL can't afford to wait, they are a business and open to lawsuits.  (still some out there)

True but that last sack was all on Luck holding on to the ball way too long.

Not from what I've seen.  There have been multiple instances when the offensive player has lowered their head first and nothing was called.

Colts offense is pretty anemic.  Take out Doyle and TY and we have basically nothing except a really good left guard and a QB who won't survive to see his 30's.

That's why there are lawsuits against the NFL. Previously not being proactive at reducing dangerous conditions.  Thus the helmet and kick off rules this year.

See what I mean about Rogers?  He should be Luck’s security blanket & TY the take the top off guy.

If it s helmet to helmet, D will get flag because RB is determined to be going into protect mode. D never is in defenseless position, thus never ion protect mode.  They are in strike mode.

Didn’t say there was a problem with them but that the implementation is clumsy
