The NFL continues to evolve and do its best to put the very best product on the field each and every year. At the current moment, annual league meetings are taking place where team owners can propose new ideas for rule changes and more. All proposals are either passed, failed or tabled by the NFL Competition Committee.
Take a look at all passed proposals for 2014.
It's good that now kickers have a little extra room to play with on all field goals since plenty of games were won or lost by missing one by an inch.
Tackling from behind has been a serious issue since it puts players in a position to get seriously hurt and now more awareness is brought to it.
Reviewed plays continue to be re-worked to allow only game-changing plays to be reviewed, not just any play. This will come in very handy on loose ball/fumble kind of plays that will now be reviewable.
The new proposal for time clock usage is great for sacks since too many times it felt like with two minutes to go in the fourth quarter, a quarterback sack would stop the clock effectively giving offenses a free timeout.
More officials will be watching the kind of penalties that happen in the trenches, which is good since most of the time a lot of infractions happen and no flags are thrown.
This is a good idea to have all final roster cuts done by 4 p.m. EST to allow players a few extra hours to see if other teams might be interested in their services.
