NFL Hall of Fame head coach urges league to make drastic changes
Former Minnesota Vikings and NFL Hall of Famer coach Bud Grant, while speaking to the Star Tribune, argued that the rules regarding kneeling and kicking defenders needed to be changed. The 95-year-old said he would like to see the league find a way to reduce acrobatics and counterattacks:
“I’m going to complain to everyone about the idea that when the second team runs out of time, the midfielder starts to get on his knees and the fans are leaving,” Grant said. ‘ I kept thinking about it and decided, ‘Yes, yes. The fouling team must give way – 1 yard – or the clock stops. Several things can happen when trying to clear the yard. You may be stuffed. You can find out. You may be fined. And you keep your fans interested. “
Grant’s idea could eventually give the sport a dynamic new outlook if implemented. But whether the NFL will heed his recommendations remains to be seen.
49ers’ George Kittle speaks out about the tightest pay gap between recipients and endings
San Francisco 49ers star George Kittle is known for his great play on the field as well as speaking his mind. In a Friday interview on Pro Football Talk PM, Kittle was more of a latecomer when he talked about the pay disparity between the top receivers and the top underdogs in the league.
Here are some of the things the Pro Bowl ended up having to say on the matter:
“Travis Kelce, six seasons in a row, 1000 yards. I’m pretty sure he’s the one with the most pitches of any skilled positions, the widest reception of the last six years. He gets paid half of what a generous recipient makes, which just confuses me. “
He went on to say:
“I mean, for me, Travis Kelce, he’s been doing it for so long and at such a high level. And he doesn’t have a game off. I think he has a bad game every year. , and that’s just because he’s three teams.”
George Kittle concluded his reflection by emphasizing the importance of end of the field position to today’s football game:
“Every NFL team. . . have won the Super Bowl or have attended the Super Bowl in the past five years has ended badly for the All-Pro to be part of the team. I feel an ending isn’t just like a cog, it’s a key position that can really add to your offense or lessen it. “
