Peyton Manning may have retired, but he can still have a huge impact on the forthcoming NFL season, and change the way the game is played. The Kansas City Chiefs proposed a rule change that the sports world is calling the “Peyton Manning Rule.”
The rule change would make it illegal for a quarterback to fall to the ground, then proceed to get back up and throw a forward pass. The rule proposition most likely stemmed from this year’s Broncos vs. Steelers playoff game. Manning fell to the ground, got up, then threw and completed a pass. The play was one of the most controversial plays of the season. The rule will be voted on by all 32 teams in the league next week.
Later today, Colts owner Jim Irsay will be holding a press conference with Manning, here in Indianapolis. You can read more on the story and see all proposed rule changes here.
