One of the hot buttons topics in the National Football League has to be if the new rules to protect offensive players has caused the league to become soft and less violent than in previous years. If you happen to ask Baltimore Ravens safety Ed Reed, he'll let you know that the NFL resembles more a touch football league: "It's definitely changing the game," Reed said about the NFL's policy to protect players.

I understand you want to make money, but bending the rules and making the game different, you know, it's only going to make the game worse." (Courtesy of ESPN The Magazine)
