    they should look at cut blocks and chop blocks but King saying 'all blocks below the wait' is a bit much IMO. Time will tell

    Well, if this goes through, it would end the use of the zone blocking scheme in the NFL. Numerous team would have to completely redesign their offenses to compensate, including the Ravens. It would be HUGELY significant in terms of competitive balance... and I'm not a fan of that.

    I don't understand this at all. It sounds like a terrible, terrible idea to me.

    Call me cynical, but I just cant see the NFL making any major rules change that would give a major advantage to defenses.

    Agreed.

    No way the Competition Committee approves this.

    I'm not sure if I'd be able to watch football if this happens.

    This story has as much validity to it as the claims (by PFT I might add) a few years ago that the NFL was "considering" eliminating kick offs.

    It's a non story.

    +1. The league has gone round and round with this idea for years and always reaches the same conclusion.

    Might as well switch to 7 on 7 and have the pass rushers count to 4 Mississippi...
