Richard Sherman Thinks NFL's New Helmet Rule Is Idiotic

Jason Smith and Doug Gottlieb react to Richard Sherman's (San Francisco 49ers) statement against the NFL's new helmet rule that requires players NOT to lead with their head as they attempt to tackle players:

"There is no “make adjustment” to the way you tackle.  Even in a perfect form tackle the body is led by the head.  The rule is idiotic And should be dismissed immediately."

Jason and Doug seem to be on both sides of the argument. Jason feels that many players, especially defensive players aren't in favor of the rule but Doug thinks the opposite and feels the rule is great for the NFL and the future going forward. Listen to the debate below.
