Can anyone provide a rule clarification? McNabb homer, Whitlock is whining and wondering if the league will come up with a "McNabb Rule" after his injury Sunday akin the the "Brady Rule". Here's what seems confusing: McNabb scored and was on the ground. NFL rules are already in the books concerning late hits. He got hit with an apparent "late hit". Why the officials didn't call I don't know. Maybe they thought it wasn't "late". Does this infer a "late hit" on the QB will be more severe or just McNabb. He's whining that the hit on Brady was legit. What exactly happened to the Carson Palmer rule? At one point, the rule specified hitting the QB. Did that rule get actually removed? Was big Vince tagged for the "Brady Rule" or the "Palmer Rule"?
