2011 Offseason Top #1: Rule Changes I have a list of items for us to discuss over the off season to get changed for 2012. The first on that list involves rule changes. Do any of you guys have a rule you'd like to bring into the dynasty? A couple that I'd like to implement are: 1. Safeties need to be used in a realistic fashion. Using KnighNoles as an example, sorry, his SS had 100+ tackles last season. This should not be the case unless you are using the 4-2-5 where your safeties are up at the LOS. In general, safeties need to be just that, safeties. I know we all use them, but crashing the line with them to stop the run is just something that the game allows too easily without a counter. There is a rule in TII about this where safeties need to stay over 10 yards off the LOS until the ball is snapped and no safety should have close to 100 tackles or many tackles for loss (unless an occasional safety blitz is mixed in). If you wish to play the run then you need to use one of your front 7 guys (LB/DL). If you occassionally walk the strong safety down for run support that's OK, but this should be limited. Basically think of bringing your SS in for run support as the same way you would theoretically use run commit, so only in instances where you either know they are going to run or need the extra help to stop the run. 2. Stat Whoring / Mongering Last season, Legend's HB lead his team in receptions and receiving yards. He received a warning for this. Something to this extent is unacceptable. Spread the ball around and mix it up. No one player should be 75% of your offense. I don't have a problem with a HB having 35+ carries a game, that happens in college. I don't mind the 20 receptions that Boykins had this season. However, if every time you drop back you're only looking for that one guy, then we have a problem. This is definitely a judgment area so tread lightly. If you think you're doing something inappropriate, then you probably are.
