http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2012/11/23/report-league-will-consider-abolishing-all-blocks-below-the-waist-in-2013/

Quote:
Peter King of SI.com and NBC’s Football Night in America reports that the Competition Committee currently plans to consider eliminating all blocks below the waist. King believes the league office is “solidly behind” a comprehensive ban, but that resistance from coaches likely will prevent a full prohibition.


Getting out of hand, already out of hand or good call?

Ha. You really want to see some bad football? Do this. No more run game. Just dropping back and the QB getting teed off on.

So no more cut blocking. no biggie. I honestly don't mind this because the vast majority of blocks are above the waise.

I don't think people realize how many low blocks are already illegal. The legal ones are fairly limited. It's just that the refs aren't very good at enforcing the rules in this area of some reason.

Honestly I don't see any change here at all.

it's no more blocks below the waist (cuts and chops) not no more blocks below the neck.

Good call. There needs to be a balance. not even a balance because the offense still has way more benefits than the defense. But more so a step in the right direction.

I'll believe it when I see it. This would be a rule change that affects the game on a scale unlike anything else the NFL has done so far. Hard to believe they'd follow through with it at the risk of losing viewership.

If I were considering it, I'd outlaw it in the open field and outlaw OLs doing it.

Biggest effect of this proposed rule? HBs are at an extreme disadvantage if this goes through.

I was just thinking the amount of HB that are going to get thrown to the side. Well this doesn't help protect the QB, right?

how many guys are actually injured on this type of block? The only time ou see a guy getting hurt on these plays seem to be when linemen get far down field and then come back to the LOS which is illegal anyway....jut never gets called...

Finally! I'm tired of this. Casey Hampton was hurt by this and I'm getting tired of seeing this altogether.
