Potential fix for faking injuries

Recommended Posts

If a player goes down for an injury that causes a delay, they should sit the rest of that series.

The tanking on Saturday was ridiculous. And even if most of those were legit, rotating back in players who just went out led to more delays because they weren't ready to play yet. 

Having to sit for one play does nothing to solve this problem. Sitting for the series is a good balance between actual player health and the need to keep the game moving. 

Maybe a coach can use a timeout if he wants to avoid the Series Sit rule. However at the moment there is no real penalty for delaying a game like this, and there should be. 

Thoughts?

Sounds reasonable to me, except when our QB or RB gets clipped and is ready to come back in the game.  There is a need to stop the BS that slows down an offense on purpose.  If a player is poorly hydrated that is his problem, sit the series and let the game go on. To surmise, it’s great when the other team is negatively effected but ours is not:lol:

In those situations a coach can call a timeout to save a player's eligibility (on either side of the ball) for the rest of the series. A player that vital is worth a timeout.

And usually especially with a QB in that situation (something minor that doesn’t necessitate a prolonged stoppage in play to get them off the field) a coach is going to burn the timeout anyway so that the backup can get a few snaps warm up the arm and take a deep breath.
