The NFL is trying to eliminate the kind of blocks that have become Ward signatures and made him a YouTube sensation. In March, the league adopted a rule change that makes it illegal for a blocker to use his helmet, forearm or shoulder to hit a defender from behind or from the side.

The league's always trying to hold back players from playing. Just like the Mel Blount rule in the 70s. Ward has a point. When a D player lies out a WR or RB, it makes highlight reels. When Ward lays somebody out, they change the rules.
