Great news...two rules (Ian Williams and Bowman) passed already:
Prop 8 (Williams) = Eliminates (sorry Seahawks) side roll up blocks to protect defensive players' knees
Prop 9 (Bowman) = Referees can consult officiating departments in NY on replay reviews
Not 100% sure if Prop 9 is the "Bowman rule" but if not, that too is expected to pass as well.
Update: Bowman rule passes - http://espn.go.com/blog/san-francisco-49ers/post/_/id/6163/navorro-bowman-rule-passes
Among the news concerning rules and bylaw proposals:
--Referees will now be allowed to consult with members of the NFL officiating department in New York during a replay review.
--The uprights on goal posts will be extended an additional five feet (from 30 to 35 feet).
--The game clock will remain running after a quarterback sack outside two minutes of either half.
--A proposal to eliminate overtime in exhibition games was tabled.
--The proposal to move extra points to the 25-yard line was also tabled. The league will experiment with longer point-after-touchdowns in the preseason. In the first two weeks of the exhibition season, the ball will be spotted at the 20-yard line for extra point kicks.
Great read by MM on how the rule changes would have effected the Niners/Hawks last year: http://www.csnbayarea.com/49ers/rules-changes-wouldve-impacted-49ers-seahawks-games
