re: How long before the league outlaws all contact? (Posted on 12/13/12 at 6:45 am to Roaad)
No, if anything the league will turn into a more pass happy league. As it is now you can't touch WRs or the QB. Ithink you will see teams putting up outrageous passing yards if the league tries to curb contact anymore than they are now.

Bill Polian was on Mike and Mike this morning and he basically said there was no reason to do away with kickoffs because if you changed the rule to move the touchback from the 20 to the 25 you'd eliminate a good many returns. I think that is the kind of neutering we'll see from here on out. There's not much more they can do with outlawing contact, they'll just change the rules to shift the style of play.
