. . . actually making things worse after being instituted. How many times do you remember players getting hurt after their helmets get knocked off in the past? Ever since they instituted that rule where the play is blown dead after a helmet comes off, Manning gets stitches after being busted open when his helmet falls off, farrior gets stitches after being hit after his helmet falls off, and another player had it happen to him yesterday (sorry, I was at the bar and didn't catch the name in another game). Maybe they are making rules which are unneeded?
