Default spring owners meeting

Thought this was kind of an interesting idea that they'll be discussing:

Quote:
Owners will consider a proposal that would allow one defensive player designated by the team to have a radio communication device inside his helmet. The device would permit the defensive coordinator to communicate with a key player in his huddle, in much the same manner coaches now communicate with the quarterback.
Possible changes to overtime could be interesting also.

I love the pass interference changes that the 49ers are proposing.

It appears the league will alter the manner in which teams report injuries during the week. The standard designations with which everyone has become familiar -- "out," "questionable" or "doubtful" -- would be used only on Friday, not beginning on Wednesday each week. Until Friday, teams would identify if a player practiced during the week, and to what extent.
I'm liking that idea.

yea I do too. I've seen way too many good games get blown because of teams purposely just trying to get interference calls or refs making bad calls.

but then the refs will make bad judgement calls, and people will still blame them. IMO, there are only 2 things that need to be changed: Roughing the Passer calls, and a better overtime thing.

They already make bad judgement calls. The problem now is that if they make one it's all or nothing. If a team throws a bomb and there's some incidental contact and a ref calls it it could end up penalizing a team 60+ yards and possibly costing them the game. If the ref makes that call with the proposed change he could decide it was only a 15 yard interference penalty, instead of a spot penalty.

i understand that, but if a team is throwing a long pass (over 15), the DB could intentioanlly (sp?) foul to save a big pickup. Pass interference is a hard foul to call. IDK there are good spots in both ways.

I'm not, you can stop a touchdown and get a 15 yard penalty instead of a 40-60 yard spot penalty... not getting a 6 point penalty because you got burned and abused the rule already is enough.

I didn't see the specifics of the rule they are trying to get, but isn't it 15 yards or something for incidental contact and it would still be a spot foul for normal contact?

Better overtime and roughing the passer would be my top priorities. The pass interfierence would take a second to that. All are very important needless to say (though I wouldn't suspect a change in the overtime rules this year).

The college overtime system is the best. In the NFL they could start from the 35 instead of the 25 and do the same system. The current Sudden Death system is terrible.

I hate college overtime. It isn't real football. It's a scrimmage where field position doesn't even matter.

college overtime is better than the NFL overtime, just because it gives both teams a chance. But in the NFL, they should at least kick it off.

Meh...agree to disagree then. I just feel that if my team wasn't able to stop the opposing team when it really mattered, then they didn't deserve to win the game in the first place. That doesn't even take into account all the opportunities my team probably had during regulation to avoid overtime in the first place.

The problem is that it isn't fair to say one team has to stop the other, without ever finding out whether the other team could make a stop. If your team deserves to lose because they couldn't make a stop, then so does your opponent. This is especially a problem in those 31-31 games where both offenses have been moving the ball at will all day. It's also pretty weak that the team only needs to get to the 35 yard line and kick a FG. Overtime is usually anti-climactic in the NFL. I'm not in favor of adopting the college format, but I think both teams should have to kick the ball off at least once. It would level the playing field, and make things much more interesting. The fact that the team to win the toss ends up winning the game 62% of the time is more than enough of a reason to change the format.

Spiking it not in the end zone, which is still dumb to get rid of.

I actually love the college system for OT. Despite what some think, I think it's an interesting concept that will add some excitement to the game.
