Default We are approaching a state where no one will know how to play football.

Matt Forte points out the stupidity of proposed rule change.

RBs may have to stop running with their heads forward. Which would be fair in a way as they've made it so that defenders can't tackle and pass interference is called 10 times a game, but I really want to see players bust through the hole leaning back.

If they really wanted the game to be safer they'd outlaw helmets. Everyone would stop leading with their heads then

I have to disagree. Some guys wouldn't but there are a lot of guys that wouldn't change. Willingness to risk injury is part of the football player DNA. And there would be a few plays a year where two guys collided bare head to bare head. That would be horrific.

At some point you have to allow the players to take on the health risks associated with the game. Provide retired players with adequate insurance coverage and let the game be.

"It is a foul if a runner or tackler initiates forcible contact by delivering a blow with the top/crown of his helmet against an opponent when both players are clearly outside the tackle box (an area extending from tackle to tackle and from three yards beyond the line of scrimmage to the offensive teamís end line). Incidental contact by the helmet of a runner or tackler against an opponent shall not be a foul."

Full rule, not the end of the world. Doubt it's going to be a big deal in the long run.

One of many reasons why NFL is putting these rules to protect players. Whether they really care? Cant say but they are going to cover themselves from any lawsuits, public scrutiny when former players health deteriorate. While also probably trying to secure some leverage in making the NFL season longer with 18 games instead of 16.

I like the rule. Too many times I see a defender go down low for a tackle, the offensive player lowers his head, and the defensive player is hit with a helmet to helmet penalty. And the offensive player is unconscious on the ground because HE lowered his head.

Don't give the nonsense about your chest being left open. Like Jeff Fisher said, "use your shoulder."

Ok, the full rule doesn't sound like that big of a deal.

Well, thank God they finally got rid of the retarded tuck rule. The new helmet rule doesn't sound so bad.
