    New Rule Change

    If you get hurt and it stops the game, you have to sit out the quarter. Thoughts?

    No because then the players might try and get up and play even if they are hurt.. Safety of the players is number 1 sitting out one play is enough

    One drive is a perfect medium.

    Not long enough to risk player safety and trying to stay out, but long enough to discourage faking.

    If agree with the drive. Watched teams do it repeatedly this year against our offense. Needs fixed.

    A quarter is too long. If a guy gets the wind knocked out of him they shouldn't have to sit out for the rest of the quarter. I'd be ok with a drive.

    Yeah, one drive makes sense.

    That's stupid. One play. Maybe two. There was a play where Cam got the wind knocked out of him against the Rams when he got hammered on hand-off. He had to sit out one play and it was basically like giving the defense a free play. Pretty much any team that loses their QB for a down/drive/quarter is basically forfeiting those plays.


    CAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAM!

    Teams faking injury to catch their breathe or stop the clock isnt cool either

    What happens if someone gets the wind knocked out of them or something? They have to sit the entire drive even if their ok?

    If the NFL truly cares about player safety then yes.

    In reality it will only hurt the players who aren't faking it. Whoever is going to fake an injury will think twice about it. I guess it stops the players who decide to fake an injury to slow the game down and at the same time hurts the honest one. I don't really like it.

    Once a third player goes down that team has to start using their timeouts to take care of the injured player. That would fix the fake injury thing. If you are out of first half timeouts you start spending your second half.

    Yep, do some dramatic!
