    In regards to the force outs. You either catch it or you don't, I like it.

    We will separate the tough receivers from the not so tough ones.

      It has nothing to do with toughness. Boldin could be in the air and if he was hit hard enough he would go out of bounds. What does toughness have to do with that??

        I don't mind the no force out rule, I think some of you are thinking about it in the wrong way.

        For one, now physical receivers and DBs will be given a slight advantage. I welcome this change because the pass interference rules are slanted towards the receiver anyway, this balances them out a bit. It also leads to more physical confrontations at the sideline which will be fun to watch and breed more "football" guys at receiver instead of track guys. And of course the calls will be more accurate and fair, something we all can appreciate.

        This doesn't mean the end of sideline circus catches, it could be a new beginning for them. It will make for great catches for those who can make the catch as well as take the hit or dodge the hit or whatever they do to stay in bounds.

        Thanks to BK for the sig

          If anyone isn't aware, the knock-out rule is the same in college football.
          I agree...

            I was thinking the exact same thing.

              Don't leave the ground if a DB is closing in on you?

              Might not be what you want to hear but it's what receivers will have to start doing. It's not much different from how they think when going over the middle, if you don't want a concussion that is.

                Once again, you can't dodge in mid air. There was only one and will only be one Barry Sanders and he unfortunately is retired. You can name all of the toughest individuals in the NFL but if the jump in the air and you run at them and while they are in the air and hit them, they will move. I believe there is a scientific law stating such.

                  Well yea but those types of catches have nothing to do with a force out. The force out is when they are in the air and get pushed/hit out of bounds before they have a chance.

                    What I mean by my comment is we'll see how bad they really want to make that catch. Chances are the tougher minded receivers will make more of those types of catches than ever.

                      What did we do before the force out rule have guys like Chris Carter make amazing sideline catches. I like the rule I think it opens it up for more spectacular catches. Wr just will have to work a little harder now, it evens it a little more now, 5 yard bump vs. no more force out rule.

                        why cant they make it so you only have to get one foot in if you are being forced out, two if not? because if you got one in, there is a huge chance that youd get another in without being pushed out, but if you got neither in then it was either bad positioning or the defender made a very good play.

                        Seems pretty good to me

                            If a receiver runs his route properly anyway there shouldn't be any reason for him to be close enough to the sideline to be pushed out.

                              A fade to the back of the endzone usually involves being close to the sideline.

If the Browns and the fans want to still whine and cry about it, fine, but they should place the blame on themselves for losing to Oakland, Arizona, and getting swept by the Steelers.
                                Let's not forget holding their playoff destiny in their hands in Week 16 and getting stomped by the Bengals, which effectively then eliminated them from postseason play.


                                The problem arises when people use statistics like a drunk uses a lamp post: for support instead of illumination.
