Those are the ones that stood out to us. We went through them play by play and tried to look at, No. 1, was the player blocked into the quarterback? And No. 2, could he have avoided the hit that he made? Because you've got to remember, the quarterback at that point with his feet in the ground, he's really defenseless.
I don't know that the Palmer play was the driving force (for the proposal), but it was certainly a force. Every year, we look at all the injuries. We additionally spent a lot of time this year looking at the quarterback tape and the quarterback injuries. So when a defensive player has an opportunity to avoid, he must take that opportunity to avoid.
That it is one that's definitely sparked some interest. It probably took us more time to discuss it and different aspects of it this year than any year in the past.
We've allowed those things to creep back. They are not necessary and should not be allowed.
When he has an opportunity to avoid, he must take that opportunity to avoid. When the quarterback has his feet on the ground, he's really defenseless.
It basically would end the communication.
It helps the defense in a sense - I don't want to accuse the offense of stealing signals, let's just assume they're borrowing the signals. We think it would be good to give the defense that ability.
Let's just assume they're borrowing the [hand] signals.
I thought he was a good athlete who played quarterback.
