Video Of How Football Has Changed

In this way cool video from NFL Network of Gerald McCoy mic’ed up for NFL Films, there is clear evidence of how babying quarterbacks has changed the NFL game, and Joe does not believe it’s for the better, unless you are into fantasy football or video games or just hate defense.

Obviously, GMC had three sacks last week against the Dixie Chicks. He should have had a fourth. GMC was in a scrum to get Dixie Chicks quarterback Matty Ice. Both GMC and Adrian Clayborn thought Ryan had gotten rid of the ball. GMC even had his hands on Matty Ice and let him go, only to realize too late that Matty Ice had the ball, and then threw a pass.

GMC, on the sidelines, was beside himself, telling all who would listen, “I thought he threw the ball otherwise I would have body-slammed him! Not even 99 [Warren Sapp] had four sacks,” GMC said.

Imagine if this was a close game and Clayborn and GMC let Matty Ice go, for fear of getting flagged, fined or suspended, and Matty Ice tosses a touchdown pass for a win?

    Honestly this is the exact reason I’m getting tired of football. The defenses hands are basically tied at this point. I don’t like seeing guys get hurt, but they’re being told to play flag football with the quarterback, don’t hit a guy coming across the middle, don’t hit a guy high, dont hit a guy low. Its almost comical. But as a person who loves to watch tough defenses, the game is losing its appeal to me.

    This is one areaa that puts Glennon at somwhat of a disadvantage…..Mobile QBs get the benefit of their ability to scramble along with all of the new protections afforded QBs. A extra tall QB is less likely to take a shot to the head.

    I’m with ShutTheBucUp here. The game is getting less enjoyable every year. It adds an element of tedium to it like basketball.
