If Reid was allowed to lead with his head and shoulder like he was taught since he first started playing then he is also protected, both guys get a little woozy and get up and play. But instead, our guy gets a helmet to the chin and is knocked out cold. very dangerous and disturbing play.
That's what happens when you let old farts who don't play football come up with safety rules to protect their wallets. f**king NFL rules are a complete joke.
The one thing that I haven't seen called all year is the offensive player leading with the helmet thing. I mean, it happens frequently... Adrian Peterson does it damn near every time.
Its good they arent calling it, because its a stupid f**king rule. Just like 99% of the calls on defensive hits are stupid f**king calls. I get the defenseless receiver calls, but 99% of the calls on those hits are not really hits on defenseless WR's.
You pretty much cant even touch the QB anymore unless you have a perfect shot on him. The whole going low on a QB rule is ridiculous. These rues help nothing. Injurys will and do happen regardless, with the same frequency.
