Default Fox analyst Mike Pereira breaks down new rules for 2010

Quote:
FLOWERY BRANCH – The defenses in the NFL can’t seem to catch a break.

Last season, there were 10 quarterbacks who passed for more than 4,000 yards. Folks are arriving at the conclusion that the NFL has turned into a wimpy passing league.

Some think that with the expansion of the definition of a defenseless player that the defenses don’t really stand a chance.

“This is becoming an offensive slanted league in terms of the rules and such,” Falcons coach Mike Smith said.

During their recent meeting with NFL official Jerome Boger to go over the rule changes for 2010, Smith, a former defensive coordinator, wanted to make sure his players knew exactly what a “defenseless player” is. Here’s a story on all of the key rule changes.

Mike Pereira, the NFL’s former vice president of officiating who’s joined Fox Sports as their NFL rules analyst, sees some positives and negatives with the new rules.

“There are significant player safety changes again,” Pereira said. “The defenseless receiver, it used to be that he was protected until he completed the catch. Now he’s protected even after he completes the catch and before he clearly has a chance to protect himself.
