    Yea I understand the idea of the rule and in a perfect world this will only be called 10-20 times in the NFL the entire year but I have a feeling it'll be called basically in every game for a while..

    I can see this happening. Let's hope it doesn't. I'm not sure how this should be handled but refs should be held accountable for over-officiating. I also think some penalties should be subject to automatic review like scoring plays are. I really liked how scoring plays were handled, we need more of that.

    It was Mike Brown. Say what you want about ol Mikey but he is quietly showing some game these past couple of years. They are still reaping the rewards of the Carson Palmer trade this coming draft and Palmer might not even be starting this year...

    This. People are overreacting to this rule. It's not going to be called when a guy's just busting through the line of scrimmage. It will be called when the guy is in the open field and decides beforehand to lead with the crown of his helmet at the defender. It won't be that big of a deal imo.

    Green just falls forward. He's not a power back per say. He's not known for running over people.

    Almost time for a new league. This one is changing te game forever. If you think this is the last step towards wussifucation of the nfl, think again. The "two hand touch" rule is gonna be voted on next week.

    If this leads to a Titans Super Bowl I love the new rule!
    The rest is over-reaction anyway..
