I am a huge nfl and football fan and I'm going to play in the nfl but over the last couple of years to me it's getting soft. The main reason why I love football is the physicality of it but this nfl makes rugby look 10 times more physical. I mean I watch a football game and it's qb gets ball looks oh he threw it oh receiver caught it and hes tackled. Where's the run game? It's more exciting to see and great run than those boring pass and catches these running backs are getting about 15 carries a game and I know it's they take hits but I'm sure since they're nfl players they can take that I would get so mad if I didn't get 30 carries a game if I was a great rb like adrian Peterson ray rice Arian foster and I know it's the ruling change and player safety concussions and teams in college developing their qbs and 7 on 7 camps but soon it just might be flag football like I've heard. Maybe I'll go play rugby instead. Any thoughts? I mean is itjust me or is this passing and shootouts boring.I do not see how the passing game is so excitinh
Look at the hundreds of retired players suffering from various horrible, debilitating injuries in their old age and tell me the NFL is getting too soft.
You complain about teams transitioning to the run game? Well, when you have several quarterbacks completing over 65% of their passes, it would seem that passing is much more effective than getting a few yards with a running play
Don't know about the NFL, but the NBA is definatly soft nowdays.
South Park did an episode on the issue of concussions/nfl being to soft on Wednesday, it was very funny.
its funny that the players when playing will &$#%#&@! and whine about the league not allowing them to play and fining them every time they hit a guy but then they are the same ones that as soon as they retire they are suing the crap out of the nfl for not protecting them enough. As the saying goes, they want to have their cake and eat it too.
