    I like both the Chiefs recommendations. Stupid Peyton Manning rule was basically the same thing as sliding and giving himself up instead of diving head first for the First down. I couldn't believe the Refs allowed that. He then did it a week later. Complete BS.

    Now how do thy penalize A. Talib when he slung a player out of bounds by is head fully admitting knew the penalty was only a yard because it was so close to he end zone.
