First, I am gad to see that the Packers are taking the route they are taking by wanting to test the rules of the NFL, instead of screwing up and later blaming the rules for their poor performance.

Second, I am so tired of the bullshit protection any quarterback in the league gets and to even have a conversation of furthering the protection for a scrambling/pistol/read-option/whatever the hell they are calling them quarterback is ridiculous. Take the quarterback off the pedestal and put him on a level playing ground of every other player on the field.
If the league gives a read-option quarterback more protection, it just creates a giant mess. Like the article states, the read-option offense is about deception. If you are allowing one player of that read-option to be untouchable, the defense is screwed.

Third and lastly, please stfu Harbaugh. The season hasn't even started yet and you are stomping your feet and crying about something. If you don't like the rules, change your offensive scheme you dillweed.

All I am worried about is that we actually touch him this game. Last year he ran all over us nearly untouched. We need to hit him behind the LOS, not 20 yards later.

If I was Dom Capers, I would take a 15 yard penalty early in the game just to send a message. Have Clay Matthews drive Kap's candy ass into the ground and let him have a little something extra to think about for the rest of the game,

The NFL's Reply..


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

=d>

Quote:
Players on the Packers have been talking about hitting 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, and San Francisco coach Jim Harbaugh is not happy about that. But the NFL has some bad news for Harbaugh: Taking hits comes with the territory of being a read-option quarterback.

In an officiating video distributed to the media, NFL Vice President of Officiating Dean Blandino says that read-option quarterbacks can be hit like runners, even if they don’t have the ball. If a quarterback who handed off or pitched the ball is still carrying out a fake in a running posture, he can be tackled the same way he would be if he still had the ball.

“He is still treated as a runner until he is clearly out of the play,” Blandino said. “The quarterback makes the pitch, he’s still a runner — he can be hit like a runner until he’s clearly out of the play.”
I think when there's enough will and aggression, there's no shortage of talent either.

I'm not saying do something dirty to injure the guy. But I agree that a message needs to be sent.

That said, we don't have to rely on Eric Walden to maintain containment anymore. Because I don't think he ever actually did so a single time in his entire life.

I want each and every last individual bone of Kaepernick's rib cage to have a deep bone bruise by the end of the first quarter; each bruising shot delivered with a shoulder pad when he has the ball, three of which cause fumbles.

This is the most I've ever agreed with you. Ever. Walden couldn't contain an infant in a play pen.

Harbaugh is just trying to buy a cheap 15 yards.

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.

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.
