Default QB cannot be "forcibly" Hit Below Knees

• A rushing defensive player won't be allowed to forcibly hit a quarterback below the knees. He has to make every effort to avoid such a low hit. Palmer, Griese and Roethlisberger suffered knee injuries on low hits but those three plays were considered legal by the committee because they involved defensive rushers coming off blocks. Several other plays such as the old Rodney Harrison hit on Trent Green when he was with the Rams along with a Jared Allen low hit on Kerry Collins would be subject to a 15-yard penalty. That proposal passed, 25-7. - ESPN

Forget dresses Mr. Lambert, they are now also sporting purple and pink thongs. They also stated on ESPN that Bill Cowher was against this rule.

Default Re: QB cannot be "forcibly" Hit Below Knees

Here's a good way for all QB's to avoid injuries:

QUIT WATCHING THE F**KING BALL AND MOVE OUT OF THE WAY.

If you watch, just about every below hit could be avoided by the QB if he would actually look down after he throws.

It's a joke. They already have these guys in a bubble. You basically need to be a Marine Sniper in order to hit these guys anymore without getting flagged. It's getting ridiculous.

Still penalized if bullet impacts below the knee.

This is a joke, and there's no way this rule can be applied in an objective way.

It will also always erroneously be known as "The Kimo Rule".

Sad.

A question for those who know about QB coaching...

Is it possible that the habit of immediatly looking down after a throw could impact the motion of the throw? Like in golf, if you try to turn your head to follow the shot right away, it screws up your swing. I am just wondering if throws are more accurate if the QB maintains his gaze on the target for a moment or two after the release.

I think we can all drink to that not happening.

I was a QB in HS, and was taught by a College QB who was pretty good...I was NEVER told to look down. In fact, I can't imagine why a QB ever would look down unless he was being tackled as he threw...

So do you think Palmer watching the play after he threw was poor execution on his part?

It seems like most QB's need to watch the ball and see what happens. I don't blame him for getting hit, I don't blame Kimo. Its just one of those crappy things that happen when you have gigantic people running at eachother.

I think that one was his fault. I didn't really mean look down right away after you throw (like when Ben got hit, that has innoviodable) I mean like the Palmer one. He had already thrown and followed threw, yet he was still watching the ball fly when he got hit. He could've moved.
