Peel-back blocks, like the one that ended Texans linebacker Brian Cushing's 2012 season, are now illegal inside the tackle box.


This could be an issue our offense adjusts to. They will have to change how they do things slightly.

It shouldn't have too much an effect. Or at least not one difficult to correct.

Peel back requires coming back towards your own end zone and blocking below the waist from the side.

Only a small number of our designed blocks have us coming back towards our endzone and even then as long as you hit in front or above the waist we'll be fine.

Agreed. We should be OK, but it's not like the rule would have likely prevented Cushing's injury...there just would have been a penalty on the play.
