NFLN just said that the hit that Brady took when his knee was injured is now illegal.

Just give him the next few Lombardi's and leave the rules alone. This is getting stupid.

You got to be kidding? Are they taking tackling out of football? First, Wards hit and now Brady. If I was a player in the NFL I would throw my hands up in the air in disgust because I wouldn't know what is acceptable anymore.

Guys from the 70's must be laughing and where this game is headed.

especially when you consider how much they make now... but that is also the reason for these new rules..

too much money involved for these guys to get hurt.

To elaborate on that, Goodell, when asked about how an 18 game schedule might affect player health said, "That's why we change the rules...to help keep players healthy".

It's all about the NFL and teams making more money. Doesn't matter if it effects the integrity of the game.

The network said that the way it happened, that the tackler was on the ground, was going to be illegal now. The defenders have to get up and re establish their stance first from now on, before the can hit. I couldn't figure out if it's just for QB's or for everyone.

It's getting to the point where I don't see why the casual fan would watch anymore.
I'd be done with Roger Goodell's NFL if it wasn't for my addiction to the black and gold.

me too. these rule changes are absurd. the rule is a defensive player cannot try and tackle a qb below the knees? what is he suppose to do let the qb get rid of the ball? i hope players dont become more passive because of these gay rules. i dont care about 15 yard penaltys that are stupid rules. hopefully these rules are rarely enforced.

yes the rules are gay and yes they will be enforced

I hope Jack Lambert comes out of his hermitage in western PA to speak out against Gaydell's assault on the longstanding core values of the game

I'm sure Deacon Jones might have an opinion for Mr. Goodell too. :lol:

We aren't without a voice here. I hope there are lot's of signs about Goodell taking the hitting out of football in Heinz field for the opener.

We should also write some letters/emails.

Frankly, I don't know how these guys are supposed to tackle anyone anymore. When you are running full speed and someone else is running full speed some contact to the helmet is inevitable.

Why not just pass the 10 Mississippi Rule?

No defender may cross the line of scrimmage until the referee counts to 10 Mississippi.
After the Quarterback has been given his allotted time to find a free receiver and throw
him the ball, but has not done so, the defense may rush. However, if the quarterback is
outside the pocket, he will be escorted to a heated seat on the sideline by the defender.
If the quarterback is still in the pocket, the defender is allowed to tag, with both hands,
the opposing quarterback in the designated "tag zone." The tag zone is the area above
the hips and below the armpits.

Under section 2.1** of the 10 Mississippi rule, all quarterbacks named Tom Brady are
allowed to utilize the Ghost Man rule. If the quarterback does not find an open man
after the 10 Mississippi rule and the defender has breached the invisible Brady Shield
in the No Tackle Zone, Mr. brady may call Ghost Man and throw the ball anywhere past
the line of scrimmage and in bounds. The Ghost Man rule will result in a completion and
an automatic 5 yard gain.
