    Can't do that either. What if a team is down and they want to use the hurry-up to gain some momentum? They have to wait until a certain amount of time has elapsed to run a play?

    Can't see it happening. Then again, I never thought I'd see the day when the horse-collar tackle would be outlawed either.

    Well it is a zero sum game. If one side of the ball is getting 21% more snaps, the other side is getting less...

    The reason the Eagles are getting more snaps is because they aren't using the time between snaps.

    Vick looked great, but doubt he makes it 10 games, he's already beat up and had to be almost carried off the field.

    Patriots has been doing it for years, Broncos has started to do the same.

    I saw a stat that Patriots ran 89 plays in week 1, Eagles "only" 77 plays.

    The thing is that the NFL is trying to regulate certain types of hits that have a high probability of injury.

    The NFL could never and will never attempt to regulate how a team executes the game plan.

    Injuries are a part of the game. But some injuries were unnecessarily created by players who are overly aggressive. The NFL wants to focus on playing the game in a humane manner, focusing on tackling techniques that are effective and provide less chance for injury.

    In 1988, the NFL changed the clock from 30 to 45 seconds from the end of the play to the start of the next. That has since moved to 40.

    How's it an unfair advantage out of curiosity?

    The Defense can gameplan for it just like they gameplan for read options, scrambling QB's, TE sets etc...

    I just don't understand how you can say Chip is giving his offense an unfair advantage? He was hired to get them wins, he's already doing that and he's doing it within the remit of the NFL rules.
