    Protecting the QB

    So, who thinks the rules in the NFL are rediculous? I just saw the worst roughing the QB call I have seen this year to protect Stafford. There was no intent that I can see and I'm not even sure from the angle they showed that he was actually hit in the head. Weak IMO.

    I agree, a great play that is illegal to make in this league!

    Re: Protecting the QB

    so if you dont intend to grab a guys facemask and rip him to the ground, but you accidentally do, should it not be a 15 yard penalty. that was helmet to helmet and by rule if that happens against any player (not just qb) its a penalty. argue the rule itself if you wish. personally i think thats why they wear helmets...so that they can take hits in the head. but the refs were just correctly enforcing the rule.

    Re: Protecting the QB

    If the rule allows no brains to be used by the ref, its not a good rule in this case. I still never saw an angle that showed helmet to helmet. Looked to me like Stafford got pulled down by someone else before that even happened.

    Re: Protecting the QB

    the rules in the NFL and college have taken away from the game, IMO. You can barely touch a QB now, without drawing a penalty. If you even touch someone who is even close to going out of bounds, it's a flag.
