    I can understand protecting a QB’s knees. He’s pretty vulnerable while in the act of throwing the ball or right after the throw was completed.

    Some of these rules protecting a QB are ridiculous and inconsistently enforced, but others are appropriate.

    Those were the good ole days.

    I liked a comment Joe made when at the University of Alabama. His friend said "the girls in the sorority are really talking trash about you." Namath answered "at least they're talking about me"

    The officiating in the NFL is getting worse year by year. The inconsistency from crew to crew is explicable.


    They need to go to full time referees and train all off season.
