I think the intent of the rule is for players to keep their heads up. No more leading with your helmet.

It is both a safety and a technique issue. Lowering your head straightens your spine, leading to more chance of injure. Keeping your head up keeps the spine agile, and lessens the chance of injury. Also, as we all know, you cannot hit, what you cannot see. As soon as you lower your helmet, you've lost your technique.

So let's be safe, and fundamentally sound, and keep our heads up.

Seriously?

I get the rule and why it is one.

A- Why was it not called?
B- If it was not called here, can it ever be called?


Not interested in a debate on spinal injuries and pop warner tackling technique. Sorry.

The rule is if you're less than a few yards from the los, so no flag on Touchdown Mike since he was 30 yards from it

I have heard Tolbert refer to himself as "The Human Bowling Ball".

There are few truly unique players in the NFL but Tolbert is one of them.
