    The absolute worst rule in the NFL?

    There are many awful NFL rules. The sliding one might be worst.

    Worst rule is definitely sudden death overtime. Also, not being allow to accidentally hit QB's in the head with your hand. It is literrally impossible to injure anyone that way.

    Re: The absolute worst rule in the NFL?

    Thanks for the post!
    I agree with the writer that it's a stupid rule.

    Is it the worst? Hmmm... I don't know. There are so many stupid rules that I would like to change, I don't even know where to begin.

    There's one so stupid they never even enforce it.

    Assisting the runner. How often do you see people pushing the pile or forcing their back ahead for extra yards or a TD?

    The worst is no endzone celebrations.

    Tuck Rule

    Sliding rule isn't that dumb. Poorly worded, but not nearly the dumbest.

    the Childress rule: it allows idiots like Brad Childress to coach an NFL team. That should rule should be thrown out.

    Has to be accidentally hitting the kicker. When a player is in the air attemtping to block a punt of field goal he can't simply change direction

    Disagree. A kicker can be seriously hurt, accidental or not. When you are trying to block a kick, if you end up hitting the kicker than you are jumping to the wrong spot anyway. You should be trying to jump laterally in front of the kicker for the highest chance of success.

    I think the rule that you can't challenge penalties, whether they are called or not, is pretty annoying. I know changing it would open a can of worms but one bad call could be the difference between winning a Championship or not.
