Goodell changed a lot of rules focused on defenseless receivers, helmet to helmet hits and protecting Quarterbacks, eg. my favorite, the Brady penalty.
I'm a big Patriots fan (ofc) but isnt it just ridiculous how many flags there are for touching a QB.
Just recently, Joe Mays was suspended for one game for hitting Matt Schaub, not late, but it was a helmet to helmet hit. And did you see the penalty on Ed Reed in the Pats vs. Ravens Game? What was Ed Reed supposed to do? Let Deion Branch catch the ball?
Anybody who says he should have hit him legally ....imagine this ....you react to a Tom Brady laser in 0.3 seconds and have to adjust to the targeted receiver who's trying to catch the ball. You want to break up the pass, strip the ball or just hit him hard enough so he doesn't catch the ball. Now you run to the receiver, trying to do one of these things, and you think you can think about hitting the receiver in a certain spot? Anybody who can do that has my vote for president!
The NFL has done a good job selling these new rules as "Player Safety Rules". The only reason they established these rules is because too many retired NFL Players sued the NFL for not telling them the risks of a concussion. Believe me, the NFL doesnt care about player safety! The only thing these rich bastards care about is money. Do you think if they are really that concerned about the players health they would let these replacement refs officiate a game? No. The only thing they care about is money and Goodell telling every coach and player to be quiet about the replacement refs' bad calls won't do anything.
