How in the world are they going to enforce this? There will be a penalty on every other play...

How do you lower your shoulders without lowering your head? RB's are going to need to relearn how to run from former Titans RB Chris Brown.

So what happens at the goal line and QB sneaks? They fix the catch rule and then do this. One step up, two steps back.

Tis about time.

 

Somewhere about end of the 80's beginning of 90's this type of hit came into vogue.

Mainly, imo, as it played well on high lights used by the upcoming sports new media (ESPN).

 

IMO, this degraded the quality of CB play in general in the league. As instead of tackling, we started to see missling by defensive players.

 

Too often not resulting in a good defensive stop.

Mainly putting both players in a bad position for their own health.

Once a player launches themselves. All control and safety is out the window.

 

 

 

Perhaps the Jetsons will prove to be true afterall
