    He said DBs *shouldn't* be allowed to tackle RBs by the knees, to prevent injury. Per ESPN's First Take.

    I suggest the following rule changes:

    1. NFL Players no longer wear pads.
    2. Both teams must perform a "2-4-6-8 who do we appreciate" chant at the end of each quarter.
    3. A belt with flags on it will be worn by all players
    4. Instead of tackling, now an ejectionable offense, players will remove flags of runners.

    I mean really... Plus, what IS a running back? I mean, a TE can be lined up at flanker just as easily as a RB can. Is it only people who wear #1-49 can't be tackled by people who are listed as "CB/Saftey" on the depth chart? Tackling is a part of football. Plus, DBs are concerned about THEIR safety when tackling low.

    If there's a rule change they should make it's RBs being able to use a face mask as a stiff arm.

    Players should not be able to tackle at all. Flag football is far more entertaining. Then again, the flags pose a potential safety hazard, and people do have to occasionally dive to rip them off. How about two hand touch? Or, better yet, we just simulate the seasons on Madden instead?

    I hope that is sarcastic or a mistype cause that is all the RBs ever use to stiff arm players
