    Default NFL "Instructional Video" on NFL Live

    Anybody see it today? NFL Live showed a video the NFL sent out to teams this week showing what is deemed "legal" and "illegal" in tackling. It just showed the absurdity and blatant inconsistency of the NFL rules committee and Goodell. These guys clearly don't even know what they are doing. Schleteth and Jason Taylor pointed out that the Harrison hit which was deemed illegal on the video wasn't any different than a "legal" tackle by Ray Lewis except for one thing - the intended WR lowers his body, thus allowing the hit to come around the head area of the WR. Schlereth pointed out how Massaquoi lowers his body to a 45 degree angle before the hit and the fact that he saw the hit coming how can he be deemed a "defenseless receiver"? Schlereth was right on the money.

    Basically, the NFL needs to be aware what the WR or offensive player is doing on the play because it's beyond ridiculous to expect a defender, in a split second, to pull up or change the angle of their tackle. And while we're talking about ridiculous rules, why isn't the offensive player in that situation called for initiating the helmet to helmet contact if he lowers his body and basically leads with his helmet? Oh, that's right, the NFL is all about the offense these days.

    I just worry about what this is going to do to Harrison mentally. Obviously, it has already frustrated him to the point of bringing up retirement. I mean, what does he do now? He can try to play less aggressive and end up being less affective as a player in the process. Or, he could continue to play like he always has and the second he hits someone hard, and they don't get back up right away, he ends up getting suspended for a few games or more, since he seems to be a marked man now. Hopefully, he just continues to play like he always has and whatever happens, happens!
