49ers QB: Flag football on the way

Do not count the San Francisco 49ers' Troy Smith among those campaigning for increased protection from officials for offensive players.

"Pretty soon it seems like we're going to be playing flag football," Smith said Monday, sounding more like a linebacker than a quarterback. "They are not allowing the defensive players to play the game the way that we know it to be played. We as NFL players and as football players know you are going to have to take a tough hit sometimes or whatever the case may be."

Smith, listed at 6 feet and 217 pounds, appears sturdier than the typical quarterback. He took five sacks Sunday and held up fine. His next opponent, Tampa Bay, has zero sacks in five of its games this season, with five of its eight sacks coming in two games against Carolina.

The 49ers will be playing without injured starting left tackle Joe Staley, however.

if there's one thing I respected most about A.Smith, it's that he'd take a shot and get right back up. No complaints.

Yeah...youre so right. Smith separated his shoulders beecuz heez a byg pussey dood! LULZ!
I honestly believe it will be something close to flag football in 15 or 20 years. That's the way it's trending no doubt, and the game always changes a lot over time.

I think the QB will have flags or something like that.
you used to be able to grab a guys facemask and fling him down to the ground by it.

I doubt players want that to be allowed again.

Agree!
He'll most likely be fined for this unfortunately.

Fine, but then they need to let the CBs jam the reciever well beyond the line of scrimmage, like 15 yards. There a lot of guys that can throw a great ball in practice, but as soon as you add the threat of getting crushed they crumble.
