New Helmet Rule

66 posts in this topic

Players automatically "brace" for a hit.

That's like telling a wr going over the middle to not go into the fetal position to dodge and brace for the big hit.

That's like telling a boxer not to duck when a punch is thrown.

Players are just trying to protect themselves, not hurt people.

Stupid fugkin rule all the way round.

THE NFL IS MAN'S GAME.....NO ONE IS FORCING YOU TO PLAY!

Umm WHAT!

When you lower your body and you are running straight forward, your head will automatically be in the front. That's how humans are made and you can't change that. sorry. Stupid rule.

No. You can lower your body but lead with your shoulder. Leading with your head is just stupid and risks you breaking your neck. It's common sense.

But it's hard to do that and to determine if someone is trying to do that. And if you can break your neck so easily doing that, why haven't I heard of all these broke necks? Stupid Rule.

    • Funny, but the thing I noticed was that he considered himself a fullback---(The Panthers are one of the few teams that used a FB...) when he had never played.  I am sure the Panthers told him that, but I wondered if that was HIS intent. I think this is another "Swiss Army knife" player.  He is a FB with TE experience.  Can he catch?  Can he slide out to a wing or even line up as a TE?  Throw him into an offense that has McCaffrey (who can catch passes) and Samuel (who can run the ball) and these three players are capable of lining up as TE/RB/WR, FB/WR/WR, TE/RB/RB, etc. I am not suggesting that he is going to line up as a TE as Olsen does, but Brockel or even Dickson Hbacking could be in the cards for him.
    • He has fumbled one single time. I don't think he's a lock. However if Fozzie is expendable then of the current guys I suppose he makes it.
