NFL overprotects offensive players
Also, they say a defensive guy can't lead with his helmet. Well, when a running back goes to run over you, what's he leading with? It's the same thing. But the rules are made to protect the offensive players, not the defensive guys.
Here's another one: the new rule against hitting a "defenseless receiver." How do we know if he's defenseless or not? He's going up for a ball, and the play happens so fast. One more: Remember when
You have to make sure the rules go both ways. One rule I can understand is the horse-collar tackle, because someone can get really hurt. That's one they should never change.
When Chicago beat us in Week 2, you'd think they'd just won the Super Bowl. And when we went down and lost to Cincinnati, you'd think they just won Super Bowl XLIV. Some teams can handle winning, some can't. We're used to winning, so we know how to handle it. We also know how to handle when we lose, too. It all goes back to the guys we have. We know it's a long season, and we know where we need to be by the end of the year. We'll get there.
But last year I also had seven games without a sack. Everything goes up and down. I used to get down on myself when I wasn't getting sacks, but it wasn't just about that. It was when I wasn't getting sacks
I haven't gotten a sack yet this season, but I think I'm going to kick it off back home in Michigan this week.
