    Blitz rule re-wording

    This is something I have thought about for a while but keep forgetting to post it cause its not a real big deal. With the differences between 3-4 and 4-3 defenses the way the rule is worded it allows a 4-3 defense to rush more people than a 3-4.
    "You may blitz 1 lb or 1 or 2 cb's or 1 safety as much as you like but keep it sim".

    In a 4-3 defense you generally are rushing 4 defensive linemen and say 1LB which would be 5 players. In a 3-4 you only have 3 defensive linemen rushing and 1LB which would be 4 players. Maybe we should re-word the rule by the number of players you have rushing.

    The only rule that I remember that should actually be there is you must always have 3 guys rushing the passer at all times. That should be our rule. No rule about how many you can blitz.

    I agree, as long as people mix up their play calling this should be a non issue.
