If safety was really an issue they would ban football all together.
Put some absorbant rubber on the outside, search for a way to make the outside less destructive. I know they are working on making the helmet more protective for the person wearing it, but; there is no thought about making it less destructive. Can it be done, heck if I know, BUT!! Is anyone even trying???

That is the worst thing I've ever heard. They're still going to tackle eat other, go after loose balls, have linemen collide, etc. If you take away the helmets you might as well arm every player with a lead pipe, same outcome.
What does that have to do with a lead pipe ? I don't get it... A HELMET is used as a battering ram. deep tissue bruises, broken knee caps, broken ribs... Head to Head contact , with no helmet will make the guys apprehensive to use their heads as a sledge hammer...

Agreed, let's put these distractions behind us, we need to focus on beating the Chargers. I originally had this game as one of only a few losses and I need the Ravens to prove me wrong with a win.
I agree with Sizzle and, lets FOCUS on the chargers now!

Hockey has a penalty box. Why can%u2019t the NFL? You get flagged for a helmet-to-helmet hit %u2014 and if replay confirms it was a helmet-to-helmet hit %u2014 you must sit out the next 15 minutes (one quarter) of game action. If it happens in the fourth quarter, the time carries over into the next game. If you get flagged twice in the same game, you sit out 30 minutes (two quarters).
