They don't mean your head cannot change elevation, they mean your facemask cannot be parellel with the ground.

Even that is very difficult and often takes years to learn

The NFL put the cart before the horse

 

"The Jacksonville Jaguars were on the receiving end of such a call in the first quarter of Saturday's preseason game when Vikings fullback C.J. Ham caught a pass from Kirk Cousins and lowered his shoulder into cornerback A.J. Bouye. Because the Jacksonville defender appeared to lower his head while bracing for contact, Bouye was flagged for a 15-yard personal foul."

 

Yes, there will be controversy this year.

The Owners did this, in off season meetings... the day the coaches went golfing.  It's true...

It's proper tackling technique and what they have been taught since they started playing.

Nice kick by Badgley.  It would be nice if the Colts can hold onto him for a year but if he gets more opportunities to kick like that he will be picked up by a team like the Chiefs did with Butker last year.

Yes but that is not true for everyone 

 

  I have known several coaches who skirted the rules or taught the way they played

Andrew how do you think you played tonight ??? His response "Not well ".....I agree.

I admire that kind of candor HOF19. Give him time.  I'm not that worried. It takes guts to own your off nights. He'll be fine. Patience.

Feed Steve some more. Give him some burn and he will produce.

Maybe but I can guarantee they have had some coaches that taught the proper technique.  Just because other coaches may have not paid attention to the technique. Now they are professionals they will learn it or they will get penalties.

Hines can run the ball but can’t catch kicks

That is why Jacoby will not be traded 

My observation is the same. Just use him like Shane Vereen and a bit of Dion Lewis and cut out all the damn kick and punt return mess.

I think Hines has looked pretty good as a RB but his punt returns need a lot of work.

What have you been watching? He had 1 run of 6 yards. The rest he was lucky to get back to the line of scrimmage.

Yes

  

 

I am not mad about the rule it is the enforcement that I see as problematic

What about as an edge rusher? Nothing? Has he gotten close? Basham

I've been watching him getting skinny in the hole and falling foward, picking up two first downs on 3rd or 4th down.

Darius Leonard has a pretty good stat sheet.  How did he play?  I missed the first half.

Booger is impressed

Sounds like the Helmet rule enforcement might change

 

I think it will be video review in New York in real time... especially if there is a disqualification.

 

We'll see.

I haven't seen him get close.  He did get penetration on a couple of plays, but its like he gets lost after getting the penetration.

    • For some reason, I completely forgot about that part. Good call. So yea, definitely less plausible of a situation.
    • There was no supplemental draft and won’t be for 2020.     https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.nfl.com/_amp/nfl-will-not-hold-supplemental-draft-in-2020
    • I mean.... isn't the obvious answer Rivers? I know he has been a bit of an iron man his whole career, but at this point he certainly isn't getting any younger, and lets be real, the alternatives to Rivers are not ideal at this point in time. We know what Jacoby has to offer, and it is about 8-8.... Eason straight up isn't ready. Do we really trust Chad *Swag* Kelly to take us to the playoffs and potentially win a SB? All previous posts have made great arguments about TY, Turray, Campbell, etc etc etc.... but there are other players at those positions who can potentially step up and fill in those spots. We are pretty much all in on Rivers if we are going to have a successful season.
    • It's an imaginary situation. An IF situation. Surely you can transpose times with the two QBs, I'm not asking you to picture Mahomes playing in the Bart Starr era.   I'm saying if Patrick Mahomes started off.....nevermind. It doesn't matter. Lets just say Mahomes is great and as a neutral, I'm glad a young QB with superb potential got drafted by an organization that knew exactly what to do with him.
    • I have seen a number of NFL media people talk about Campbell.... not in a glowing sense, but when they mention the Colts offense, they list him off as one of the weapons at Rivers' disposal. I think at some point i've seen it on Good Morning Football and also on the Around the NFL Podcast. Gregg Rosenthal is plugged in on him a bit. Again, no one is predicting he is going to come out and take over the league or anything, but they are talking about him as one of Rivers' weapons.
