Rule changes to be considered at NFL meeting

Posted on: March 23, 2009 4:06 pm
 

 There are a few potential rule changes, mostly concerning player safety and tweaks to instant replay.

The most noteworthy is a change that would allow plays ruled as incomplete passes to be reviewed when they might actually be fumbles.

The rule has been dubbed the "Hochuli Rule" because of the time when referee Ed Hochuli incorrectly ruled that Jay Cutler's fumble late in a game against San Diego was an incomplete pass. The play was not reviewable, and Denver took advantage of its good fortune to win the game.

A safety rule proposal would protect defenseless receivers from contact to the head area, even if the player hitting him was using a shoulder.  This would make some of the more memorable hits by Hines Ward illegal.

There also seems to be great support for expanding the schedule to 17 or 18 regular-season games (while cutting the preseason down to two or three games).

Rule changes to be considered at NFL meeting

yah actually the season earlier start with more games that is very good to us!


Of these, expanding the schedule is at the top of my list! There's way too much time from the start of training camps to opening daay. Season ticket holders have to pay the same price for pre-season games as regular season games when they don't get to see the 1st teamers much at all. Also, too many injuries are happening in games that don't count. 18 games, make it happen!!!

yes yes start the season earlier with more games! 
How about losing the "hey you celebrated too much, i'm throwing a flag" rule. Let em flaunt a little, I hate the Skins, but loved when they all circled in the endzone and jumped in the air back in the early 80's. That was awesome. Let em celebrate for cryin out loud!
