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.

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.

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.

    • Reich intends to pit the two against one another in what many would consider Vinatieri's specialty: high-stress situations. The Colts coach explained that he will do his best to fabricate those situations during and after practice. One can be sure that without the added test of preseason games, the kickers' performance during these high-stress situations will go a long way in determining who wins the competition.   “They'll get all of their normal routines," Reich said. "But as a team, we'll create more team atmosphere, team kicking drills that will be heightened and weighted more heavily in the kicking competition."  Though Reich didn’t submit a “favorite” to win the battle, McLaughlin surely has the leg up in that he’s a somewhat proven NFL commodity. Last season, the undrafted free agent performed admirably in what amounted to a four-game audition with the Colts after Vinatieri succumbed to injury. Arriving in Indianapolis in the high-pressure role of replacing the kicker many consider the greatest of all time, McLaughlin drilled 5-of-6 field goals and all 11 of his extra points in those games. His performance in Vinatieri’s stead earned him a one-year contract with the Colts immediately following the season.    Of course, the man they call “Hot Rod” brings an impressive resume to the battle as well. During four years at SEC powerhouse Georgia, Blankenship was a model of accuracy and consistency. He connected on all 200 of his extra points and finished his Bulldog career an 82.5% field goal kicker and the school’s all-time leading scorer.  For his efforts -- and to keep him away from other teams -- the Colts handed Blankenship a $20,000 signing bonus, a hefty number among undrafted free agents. Despite McLaughlin’s incumbent status, Blankenship’s price tag and Reich comments foretell would should be an equal and open competition for the job.    https://www.indystar.com/story/sports/nfl/colts/2020/07/29/colts-vinatieri-era-indy-seemingly-over-mclaughlin-blankenship-battle-job/5536851002/
    • Colts have the rights to Luck, so if he played for another team, they would have to trade for him. 
    • Luck is the new Elvis.  Just let the man retire in peace. Sheesh...
    • Pretty sure they will arrive at their conclusion by what they see in practice or they will flip a coin.
