Fans who love old-style physical football -- some would say the pre-Roger Goodell era -- are bound to be outraged by a proposed NFL rule that prohibits the ball-carrier from initiating contact with the crown of his helmet.

Most certainly, Emmitt Smith, the NFL’s all-time leading rusher, is outraged. In an interview with a Dallas radio station, he said, ``If I’m a running back and I’m running into a linebacker, you’re telling me I have to keep my head up so he can take my chin off?

I like it. It's ridiculous that defenders could be penalized for a helmet-to-helmet hit in cases where the ballcarrier is just as responsible. And if they're going to actually care about concussions (or pretend that they care) this seems to make sense in that regard.

Let him sit. The Dolphins used their highest draft pick in a generation on a new running back, and with all Ricky's baggage and uncertainty he's not going to generate much in terms of a trade.
