I do think the one result we will see is more injuries to WRs. I really think the leauge blew this call. I don't know about most of you, but I love to see a WR stretch out to make a leaping grab and drag his toes to stay inbounds. Why bother if you know the D can just push you out and it doesn't matter. And at what point will the ref have to determine that the CB didn't knock the WR out as much as hit and carried him out?


I agree. I don't like the rule because it encourages exactly what you are saying. Wrap a guy while he is jumping and carry him out of bounds. I guarantee there will be a number of plays where the announcers go on and on about this.

The Force Out rule will make an impact on the tall wides IMO. Guys like Burress, Moss and Fitzgerald get a few TDs every year when their QB lobs up a pass in the corner of the endzone that only they can catch. If they are getting pushed out and no longer getting that TD, it will affect some fantasy teams. In the overall scheme it might only be 1 or 2 TDs, but if it comes during your playoffs then you'll definitely gripe about it.
