The Roy Williams Rule?

New, comments

The NFL Competition Committee is debating whether to outlaw the "horsecollar" style of tackling that Roy Williams used when he broke Eagles WR Terrell Owens' leg. According to a committee member, Williams injured four players with that style of tackle last year.

Update: The NFL Competition Committee is determined to make a change, but is still uncertain as how to proceed. What is certain is that some version of this rule will be implemented; no less an authority than Jerry Jones says so.
