Somehow, the NFL has managed to out-stupid itself

Somehow, the NFL has managed to out-stupid itself
07 Sep

You know what’s dumber than the NFL’s new helmet rule and the NFL’s new catch rule?

The NFL’s new “penalize players who sack the quarterback’’ rule, that’s what.

That’s not what it’s called. But that’s the result. And there it was, on display in a league opener that combined bad with stupid.

The NFL wants to sell tackle football, but it won’t let players actually tackle one specific position on the field because the NFL now penalizes players for form tackles of a quarterback. No lie. True fact. Just ask Grady Jarrett.
