Huddling

Would football be better if huddling was eliminated by reducing the play clock to 20 seconds?

Am I crazy to think that NFL teams shouldn't need to huddle? No other sport does it. NBA players don't draw up a play after every change of possession. It's boring as shit. It slows the game down. It's a complete waste of time.

Two reasons that it could actually happen.

1. The league is so worried about concussions that they might want to see the players get smaller. 325 pound D-Lineman won't exist. This could reduce the force in the collissions and reduce concussions.

2. The league is dying to figure out how to get more global appeal. The rest of the world loves soccer because it's a continuous game. When they see football, they get bored. It's funny because Americans think soccer is too boring because there isn't as much action, and they think football is boring because there's too much inaction. If you combined the superior action of football with the superior lack of inaction in soccer, that sport would take over the world.



Am I nuts? Should we eliminate the huddle?

Despite the intentions of such a change, research into CTE shows that concussions, while extremely dangerous, are not the primary culprit of brain injuries in most of these players. Thousands of sub-concussive impacts, the kind you receive on almost every play, are the impacts that led to CTE.

It's like radiation. Yes, a large dose can be lethal, but health physicists determined that there is no safe minimum level of radiation exposure. Any exposure increases potential health risks.

The fact of the matter is that football cannot be played in a way that current neurologists would determine as safe and retain its core characteristics. Thus, fans and players will either have to accept the danger implicit in the game, or do and follow something else.

I don't know if sign boards would work in the NFL. And the hand signals/vocal audibles occur after the huddles for the most part. Even Peyton Manning teams still huddle for the majority of the plays.

There's no reason why a sign board wouldn't work in the NFL. It looks foolish, but the concept of coding a play is commonplace.

The K-Gun worked pretty well for Buffalo. There's no reason why any NFL QB couldn't call his own plays.

Crap! I thought this post was about football cuddling. It sure would lead to a lot fewer fumbles.

I think you could do many of the things suggested in the thread. Would it make the game better? I don't know. It would probably increase the gap even more between good QBs and bad QBs. Might make the game more like the NBA. Then again the Colts, Patriots, Steelers and Ravens have won the AFC almost every year this century anyway.

So, basically like one huge no huddle game. That'd mess some teams up so bad.
