Rule Changes!

3

Highlights: "Rules defining defenseless players expanded to eight categories: • QB in act of throwing • Receiver trying to catch pass • Runner in grasp with forward progress stopped • Player fielding punt or kickoff • Kicker or punter during kick • QB after change of possession • Receiver who receives blind-side block • Player already on ground KICKOFF CHANGES? • Competition committee will propose moving kickoff to 35-yard line, and bringing touchback out to 25. No changes for touchbacks on any other plays, with ball coming out to 20. • No player other than kicker would be allowed to line up more than 5 yards behind ball. • Outlawing wedge on kickoffs; all blocking wedges were reduced to two players in 2009. REPLAY CHANGES? • Committee will propose making all scoring plays reviewable. Replay official would order replays on any touchdowns, field goals, safeties and extra points without the coaches needing to challenge. Similar to current system for final two minutes of each half and overtime. • Eliminating third coach's challenge if he is successful on first two. NFL SCHEDULE NFL plans to release regular-season schedule in mid-April, despite current work stoppage. NO-GO There will be no "Calvin Johnson rule" proposal on what is a catch." I wrote none of that in quotations, i just dont know how to block quote in fanposts.
