NFL passes five player safety rules

The NFL continues to add rules designed to make the game safer.

At today’s league meeting, the owners approved five rules proposals, all of which had been suggested to make the game safer. The five new rules are:

1. Bans defensive players from pushing teammates at the line of scrimmage when the offense is in punt formation. (This rule already exists for situations when the offense is in field goal or extra point formation.)

2. Prohibits all offensive players from engaging in peel back blocks.

3. Gives receivers defenseless player protection when a pass is intercepted.

4. Makes it illegal for a running back to chop a defensive player engaged above the waist by another offensive player outside the tackle box.

5. Allows an injury spotter to stop the game if a player appears to have suffered a brain injury.

What's next

6. You can only pull the runner's flag when he is in between the 20 yard lines, any pulling of said flag in the "red" zone will be a penalty of a TD for the offensive team

7. No touching of ANY kind

Re: NFL passes five player safety rules

why do the new rules always involve removing something from the game? Maybe they ought to start rule changes that give something back like...if a QB goes untouched in the pocket for 5 seconds or longer,you get an extra 5 yards attached to the end of the play. Or if you go the whole first half without a penalty,you get an extra 7 points. If your gonna change the game,at least have some fun with it.

Re: NFL passes five player safety rules

We shouldn't have to keep score either.......it hurts the losers feelings.

I realize these are supposedly for player safety.

They should put on dresses next. These guys knew the risks before they signed on the dotted line.
