  • NFL Rule Changes --- 2019

    Seriously ? Something else to help the Offense, or a rule that will hardly be used.

    Makes sense to change onside kicks since the rule changes last year completely killed on side kicks.

        I hate it, qb shouldn't get the ball in his hands. It should be on the special teams. Change the rule back to the way it was and play football the way it was meant to be played.:2cents:

          I like the rule as well, but only because other rules destroyed the onside kick (which is preferred over these new shenanigans). So, without being able to onside kick...I think this is, at least, a viable alternative. However, with caveats:

          1) Classic rules defense is allowed on the play! QB hammering is allowed, and receivers out over the middle are fair game for demolition. Ok - that's not likely (and probably more injurious than the previous version of the onside kick). No cookie-cutter calls against the defense for the onside play - there has to be an OBVIOUS penalty, and ALL penalties are closely reviewed and if necessary, overturned. Slightly bumping a QB's visor will not produce an automatic first down.

          2) No scoring is allowed on the play - it's only for 15 yards and possession of the ball. What cannot and should not happen is a team just using the 'onside' play with a mobile cannon-armed QB to just scramble around and launch a pass down the field with the potential of a touchdown. The play should only be used to determine possession. If the offense picks up at least 15 yards (from their own 35), the ball is spotted at the 50 yard line and they retain possession (as though they recovered an onside kick).

          In a perfect football world, I'd like to see the original onside kick rules reinstated...but what can you do?

            I am not keen on this proposal. If a team is behind by 2 scores late in the game, I do not see a 15 yard play giving them the ball back. As Lum has stated, it certainly can not be the result of a pass interference or minor hit on the QB.

            I would prefer we review the current kickoff rule, and slightly change to improve the chances for recovery by no more than 10%. In the end the chances for recovery should be no more than 20%. Why? Because teams who are desperate to catch up, late in games, should not be given too easy an opportunity to do so. They are behind because they were well behind on the scoreboard for most of the game....so, make 'em really earn it.

            I guess I am more of a purist of sorts, so maybe I am the party pooper. But I do think gimmickry should be more for trick plays than actual rules.

              I don't think we need more rule changes. On sides kicks are not meant to be easy. Teams should practice on sides kicks regularly. They will practice every other play over and over. I would think the harder something is, the more it should be practiced.

                The proposal has been rejected.

                  I’d like to see the distance the ball must travel reduced to up the chances of a recovery. The current rule is going to cause special team coordinators to come up with more dangerous ways to recover onside kicks because as it is now it’s very rare to recover. The next progression I see is kickers popping it up as high as possible which will lead to more and more players getting hit in the air going for the ball.

                    They probably raised the same concerns...and the league wasn't willing to relax any rules constraining a defense for safety reasons. So someone accidentally steps on a QB's shoelaces, and it's roughing the passer - automatic first down and possession. That would've sucked so bad.

                    If it was classic rules defense, I think it's actually a cool idea.

                    Now they just need to fix the onside kick problem that they created...and create a new problem in the process.

                      I thought it was an interesting idea but the NFL committee are dreadful so it was never going to pass, they never should have messed around with the original onside KO's.

                      Every year when they mess around with the rules it makes the game worse, it makes you wonder where the game is going.

                      I see they are 'expanding' the defenseless player rules again, as if it wasn't soft enough. You couldn't make this stuff up, they are making the game unwatchable.

                        Happy that the owners have rejected this rule. Some Razzel Dazzel by Elway and company that did not work ?

                          New rule change

                          Apparently offensive and defensive pass interference calls can now be challenged.

                              It’s a shame that it has to come to a rule change when the entire free world watched them botch the call but hey if this is what it takes to call a fair game!
