I liked it. Definitely will give it another try. No kickoffs really speed up the game. The one thing that confused me were the illegal formation" calls against the defense. This doesn't exist in the NFL. What is a defensive illegal formation?

I loved it, actually hitting football again. If this happened in the NFL they would have suspended the players entire family!

Thanks. This one was also helpful. https://www.cbs42.com/top-stories/aa...out/1768577885
  • On defense, no more than five players may rush on passing plays.
  • Players that line up on the line of scrimmage are designated as one of the five players eligible to rush, regardless of whether they rush or not.
  • No defensive player may rush from a position of more than two yards outside the widest offensive lineman and more than five yards from the line of scrimmage (defensive pressure box). The exceptions would be play-action or run-pass option plays and if the ball leaves the tackle box.
  • Any player who aligns on the line of scrimmage either prior to or at the snap is designated as one of the five players regardless of whether he rushes.
  • A flag for "illegal defense" carries a 15-yard penalty.
Will have to see how this works out. I'll only saw the one game but the still generated a good pass rush within these rules.

Lol, yeah, that was a rough hit. He took it well though. I'm looking forward to today games a lot.

It looks like the season is only 2 months though, but at least it'll get me by until the spring, when I'll be out riding anyway!

Seems this is perfect for cold climate bikers lol.
