Anybody worried about the new umpire positions???

I figure it just means the offensive players will have to get better at disguising their holds. The rule was changed to help the stripes with safety. There already was a guy back there, now there are 2. Shouldn't change the game that much. I wonder how it will impact the secondary with a guy less. Might help the defense as well with less defensive holding and interference calls over the middle.

The offensive linemens job just got harder,especially the left tackle that usually has to hold off the speed rusher on the quarterbacks blindside.

I'm just worried the games will now run 6 hours to get through the 30 holding calls each game.

Seems like there are a lot of holding calls this pre-season. Should help the DE's but hurt the O-line. Pass blocking wasn't exactly their strong point. They were good but run blocking was their forte.

#69 should worry...but he doesn't know what the hell they are talking about..."If you start, how can it be false? I started didn't I?"
