Rules committee, voting
Whats your opinion on this proposed rule:

Another proposal that would seem to be a slam-dunk for passage is outlawing the so-called "horse-collar tackle," in which a defender grabs the back inside of an opponent's shoulder pads and yanks down to make the tackle. Several such instances resulted in serious injuries last season, most notably Dallas safety Roy Williams ' tackle of Eagles All-Pro receiver Terrell Owens.

"The coaches are concerned," Pereira said. "There is a trend of injuries and those of a serious nature, for this tackle."

One of those coaches, Bill Belichick of the two-time champion New England Patriots, isn't sure where he stands on the issue.

"I can see why it's being brought up, where it's coming from," he said. "A lot of tackles, where a guy gets his hand on the shoulder pad, a player doesn't get hurt. There are a lot of in-line plays. There's a lot of things to think about.

Problem here is , if a guy gets a step on you, he`s gone. I know it sucks, but you reach out and grab what you can. Soon our players will wear flags on thier waist
