      Give me a break guys. This doesn't eliminate backside blocks, and even under the new rules Ward wouldn't have been fined. You guys are acting like they are eliminating these things all together, instead of just trying to avoid the to the head crap that is completely unneccessary. A big, clean, backside block would still be legal, don't overreact....

        Isn't it ironic that this is like the Carson Palmer rule, in that it was based off of his play yet there would have not been a penalty on that play under the new rule?

        anyways

        I think if it's enforced fairly, a rule limiting helmet-to-helmet is good. Of course, watch the refs make BS calls because of it. That's the problem.

            Helmet to helmet contact is already a penalty and a fine. How is this rule proposal any different?

              usually no one cares about it on blocking plays, only hits. This is a blind side block not tackle.

                  I don't get this. Yea safety is important but think about it, without those kinda blocks defensive TDs and Punt returns etc wouldn't happen. So your Devin Hesters, Reggie Bushs etc wouldn't have the same sort of chances to produce highlights which would generate less interest in fans which in turn would generate less revenue. There has to be a line drawn between when there is a good chance of someone being hurt and detracting from the game. Just because a fairly high profile rookie gets hurt should not be enough for a rule change.

                  By the way the block at 26 secs in this return was beautiful

                    I understand that, but I didn't think the rule specified helmet to helmet tackle vs. helmet to helmet hit.

                    Blocking or tackling - helmet to helmet is a penalty. There is no need for a new rule. Simply make a point to say the current rule will be more strictly enforced on blocks.

                      Look there would be MORE returns for TD, at least KR. Since they are thinking of adding a rule for less wedge buster guys.

                          It was beautiful, and from my understanding, wouldn't be a penalty with this new rule. Correct me if i'm wrong, but people aren't really reading what the proposed rule is, as it doesn't remove those blocks all together......which people seem to be assuming it does....

It is where the block is targeted. I don't think offensive or defensive players should have to avoid hitting someone on the helmet with their shoulder.
                            Well, considering that unless the height difference is great, someone really has to try to knock someone in the head with their shoulder.

                              There's always fans who think they're tough when they disagree with rule changes that protect players from unnecessary injury. Everytime a rule like this is brought up they start in with "Grrr it's a contract sport! Injuries happen! I'm so tough sitting in my seat typing my disagreement to this rule! Who cares that I'm not the one out there taking the hits! I'm so tough!". The fact is when these rule changes get are put in to place it usually doesn't hurt the game. If it does, they can just change it back. A couple of years ago these tough fans were whining about the horse collar rule. Now that it's in place the only thing that's changed is players aren't getting their legs broken when some jackass defender decides to drag a player down by pulling back on the back of his jersey while falling onto the back of his legs. That rule didn't hurt the game at all that I can tell.

                                So like I said there's no need for that. No reason to go after someone's head.
