There is a reason NFL teams don;t want their qb running all over the place. The odds of them getting hurt go way up. The newer coaches must be too young to realize the idea of running qbs has been scraped several other ties in the past.

True, but the all the new rules to protect the QB has changed the variables of those past experiments.

NFL confirms: Read-option QBs can be hit like runners





Saw Harbaugh still trying yesterday at his press conference.

Saying the rule is "cloudy".

When the only thing that's cloudy is your QB's memory, maybe you will get away from the "gimmick" offense you are trying to run and try playing like a real NFL team.

Then if you beat your opponents, so be it.

The rule changes have given the offense plenty of advantage already, The NFL doesn't need to change anymore rules on protecting The QB.

Maybe...maybe not...

These calls are more-so judgement calls, and I have a feeling that the refs are going to be erroring on the side of throwing the flag vs not.

NFL speaks – Jim Harbaugh Whines


Quote:
You knew it was coming … Since San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh could not get the NFL to provide even more protection to read-option quarterbacks, he is now calling the league interpretation of the rule allowing quarterbacks engaging in option tactics “flawed and biased,” when interviewed yesterday.
