Some of the proposed rule changes are just ridiculous. http://www.boston.com/sports/football/patriots/reiss_pieces/ Protecting SNAPPERS on field goals? WTF? Preventing teams from loading up one side of the field for on-side kicks? HUH? Isn't that what is SUPPOSED to happen on on-side kicks? Whomever is proposing these rules needs their head examined. Lets just makes the guys where flag belts instead. JESUS. Of note, I have no problem with then trying to protect QBs from low hits. However, they need to make hits to the QB a point of emphasis. Way too many QBs too late hits last year. Howeverf, its going to be nearly impossible to enfore the hitting below the knees on a QB because it would eliminate the shoe string tackles where a player gets one hand on the QBs shoe, and knocks the QB off balance. Also, I have no problem with them broadening the horse collar rule.
