For the second week in a row the PODcast has blown predictions about the trade deadline. First , we expected a quiet couple weeks from the team and were proven wrong in less than 24 hours when the Detroit Lions traded for Damon Harrison Sr. Then earlier this week, we shrugged off Golden Tate rumors only to, again, be proven wrong in less than a day.So the PODcast reconvened late Tuesday night to eat a bunch of humble pie and discuss the team’s somewhat surprising move. To help discuss the trade, we brought along Kyle Yost, who advocated for this very trade about a month ago. Along with Jeremy and Ryan, they debate the merits of this move and what it means for the team. This week on the EMERGENCY PODcastJeremy is frustrated, Kyle is vindicated and Ryan is somewhere in between. Was a third-round pick enough compensation? Weighing the cost-benefit between losing Golden Tate for nine games and earning a second-day draft pick. Is there any chance the Lions make a play for Tate this upcoming free agency period? The crew discusses the short-term implications of the trade: Is the 2018 season over? How will the Lions offense adjust? Who stands to benefit the most? Speaking long-term Authentic Kerryon Johnson Jersey , is receiver a big need headed into the 2019 draft or are the Lions becoming a more run-based offense?Between this and the “Snacks” trade, what kind of message is the front office sending to its players and fans?

While we were all freaking out about the NFL’s new rule regarding helmet contact, a smaller rule change was lying dormant, waiting to ruin the game as we know it. During this year’s owner’s meeting this year, the NFL adopted several new rules, including the aforementioned helmet rule, a kickoff change and finally a change to the catch rule. However, on the NFL’s official “2018 RULES CHANGES AND POINTS OF EMPHASIS” page Authentic Matthew Stafford Jersey , if you scroll way down the page, you’ll see a section labeled “Protection of Quarterbacks.” There you’ll find an enforcement change that has rocked the NFL season through three weeks:If you’ve missed it, this is Clay Matthews’ least-favorite new rule. He’s been called for roughing the passer in all three games, and while they all haven’t involved this landing on the quarterback/body weight stipulation, the most controversial one did. Take a look:This has the players and fans up in arms, as it looks like a pretty standard NFL tackle, and it’s hard to imagine Matthews making the play in any other “legal” way. So today’s Question of the Day is:Does the league need to change its roughing the passer rules or enforcement?My answer: There’s no doubt something needs to be done. I understand the reasoning for the “body weight” rule, but it seems like the league added it with little understanding just how tough/impossible it is for players to adapt to it. Asking a player to somehow control exactly where their body is while they’re in the middle of making a tackle is just too much. This isn’t a case of “the players just need to adjust Womens Sylvester Williams Jersey ,” adjusting is nearly impossible. You’re asking defenders to have reflexes that humans are incapable of, and you can see it in the frustration of the players. I don’t have a nice and neat solution to this one, but the NFL is already reportedly looking into changes in how the rule is enforced, so that’s a good sign.Your turn.
