Remember when a game could be won in overtime by winning the toss Marcus Davenport Jersey , gaining a few first downs, and kicking a field goal? When the Saints did just that nine years ago to secure a Super Bowl berth, the league abruptly changed an unfair rule that had been hiding in plain sight for decades. It will take that kind of outcome to make the notoriously conservative NFL change the worst rule on the books.It’s the fumble out of the end zone. There continues to be no good argument in favor of allowing the offense to keep possession when a fumble in the field of play goes out of bounds at the one-inch line but giving the ball to the defense at its own 20 if the ball ends up hitting the pylon or otherwise ending up out of bounds in the end zone.The defense in many cases has done nothing cause the fumble, and it necessarily has done nothing in any case to recover it. So why does the offense keep the ball when it goes out of bounds in the 100 yards that aren’t the end zone but lose it if the ball crosses the plane of the goal line? It makes no sense, and the “well don’t fumble it” excuse doesn’t work because, again, if the ball goes out of bounds at the one-inch line Authentic Archie Manning Jersey , the offense keeps it even if the offense lost it.While the worst rule in football routinely is discussed (supposedly) by the Competition Committee, there’s never been a push to change it because the worst rule in football has never marred a conference championship game or a Super Bowl. Someday, it will. When it does, the rule will quickly be changed.It will quickly be changed because millions of casual fans who tune in only for the biggest games of the year will see the outcome and say, “How can this be?” So when the rule embarrasses the NFL in a profound and notorious way, the league will say, “We can’t let this happen again.”But it should never happen at all. And the league can prevent it from ever happening in one of the biggest games of the year by changing it. Chances are the league won’t Bobby Hebert Jersey Salute to Service , because for whatever reason the league isn’t wired to prevent outcomes like this before they create an otherwise avoidable debacle.On Monday night, the worst rule in football reared its ugly head again, as Saints receiver Tommylee Lewis lunged for the end zone, lost possession of the ball, and it went out of bounds on the other side of the goal line. Though the Panthers weren’t able to parlay the ensuing touchback into a points, there’s no chance that the situation would have sparked change even if Carolina had driven the length of the field and won the game. The worst rule in football needs to trigger a worst-case scenario in a huge spot before the league will face the kind of P.R. firestorm that will force action.And it will. Guaranteed. So why not fix it before it gets to that point?In a league that routinely eschews proactive measures in lieu of reacting to rules that create a bad look, how about envisioning the bad look and preventing it?It won’t happen Morten Andersen Jersey , because the league simply doesn’t operate that way. So the worst rule in football will stay that way until it creates a grossly unfair outcome in a season-altering game, forcing the NFL to do what it should have done years ago.Just like it did with the overtime rule. The New Orleans Saints enter halftime with a 12-7 lead over the New York Giants in Week 4. Wil Lutz has made six field goals, four of which actually counted thanks to penalties. The Saints offense is just 1-of-7 on 3rd down, and haven’t turned in a red zone touchdown yet. Drew Brees is 9-of-18 for 102 yards, as the Saints have outgained the Giants 164-97. The Giants had an early touchdown drive, but saw a couple of 3-and-outs and a Wayne Gallman turnover. The Saints have had plenty of opportunities, and it’s things like this that drive Sean Payton into a frenzy. Hopefully Authentic Sam Mills Jersey , the Saints can continue to shell out some of the defensive efforts we’ve seen thus far, and the offense can get things going. Michael Thomas has been relatively quiet, catching his lone target for 12 yards. There has been plenty of Taysom Hill, however.The Giants will receive the ball to open the second half.
