    New Pre-game rule

    No, the NFL didn't make it illegal for Bradshaw to open his mouth on network TV, but I hope they're working on it.

    Instead, they made it possible for a team to get a personal foul before the game even starts. This is in reaction to the fight between Trotter and Mathis last Monday night.

    In the wake of the Eagles-Falcons pre-game scuffle last Monday night, the National Football League has instituted a "neutral zone" for pregame warmups, ESPN's Chris Mortensen reported Monday.

    The league has notified all of its clubs there is now a 10-yard neutral zone between the 45-yard lines for all pregame warmups.

    Game officials will be situated in this neutral zone to police it. No players, expect for punters and kickers, are allowed in the 10-yard neutral zone. Any other player who enters the neutral zone will be warned; if the player remains or re-enters the zone after that, he will be subject to a 15-yard unsportsmanlike conduct penalty that his team would endure at the start of the game.

    This is going to lead to several brawls between opposing teams kickers and punters. Good thing we don't play the Raiders this year, I think Janiskowski would kill Edinger.
