Saints’ defensive coordinator says helmet rule comes down to how it’s officiated

The NFL is starting to offer some details about how the new rule against lowering the helmet to initiate contact will be enforced, but until we actually see which plays the officials flag and which plays they let go, we probably won’t know exactly what this new rule means.

Saints defensive coordinator Dennis Allen says that the video the league has distributed to give examples of penalties under the new rule offers some insight, but a play can look significantly different on replay than it looks on the field.

It’s hard to watch film and not have Witt in the film. You know what I mean? Cowboys tight end Geoff Swaim said.

I still look at his play as something that’s a model in a lot of ways for what I want to do in terms of his technique and his finish on plays and stuff like that. His nuances and the way he played the game as a route-runner really stuck out to me. It’s real evident when you watch tape. It’s always him. It’s always him. It’s always him. And it’s that way for a reason.
