Here's another thing that the NFL is thinking about implementing:

Adrian Peterson rule could be coming

Posted by Mike Florio on November 29, 2009 4:13 PM ET
The NFL's new approach to concussions continues to generate news, with the topic dominating the broadcast network pregame shows.

Both Jay Glazer of FOX and Charley Casserly of CBS reported that the league could be outlawing the dropping of the helmet by ball carriers. Running backs like Adrian Peterson often use their hats as battering rams, putting not only their brains but their spines in peril.

It would be a great move, not simply because Peterson and others like him need to be protected from themselves in this regard, but because other players need to be protected from being hit with helmets unnecessarily -- and because kids who play football are getting mixed messages from their coaches/parents and their heroes.

they are bending over backward for Congress.. ridiculous considering boxing has been around for centuries, where guys are killed and seriously injured each and every year from head trauma.. yet nobody says much of anything. how many guys have actually been killed playing football over the years? can they tweak some things to make the game safer, sure.. but they are stripping the game of football of it's physical nature each and every year.

they took away everyone's favorite segment on ESPN "Jacked Up" because it was too violent and glorified hard hits.. pansy assholes.. hard hitting is why we love football!

I hear that. It's getting to the point where I'm losing interest... irregardless of the Raiders' woes.

What's next a PI for intent of hitting too hard? This sure is not football anymore and, I'm sure the former greats are shaking their heads about this.

Don't forget when a player calls for a fair catch and bobbles the ball or even flat out drops it you have to give him every oppertunity to recover.

godell you smell and tagliboob wasn't any better.
