Does anyone else agree with Brady?

I don't  see how somebody wearing a different number makes him impossible to block. Maybe that is why our pass rushers always sucked. The Jets are just assigning the wrong uniform numbers to them.

Dudes where different #'s in college all over positional groups.  Yet, they figured it out and they're not paid professionals.

i hate how restrictive the nfl is with uniforms.  college teams have unlimited amount of uniforms, can use any number and it works fine.  i'd love to see teams with alternate uniforms, mixing it up a bit.  NBA, NHL all have tons of uniform combos.

I don't think its big deal but why change the numbers rule now? Discrimination has got to be playing a role here somehow and that's pathetic. Somebody complained that only the big guys get to wear certain numbers. Shoot me now!

I do agree with him also. 

At least with the current number scheme the players have some idea of what the opposition is doing.

This change certainly helps the defenses.

Can you tell me position on defense that can't drop into coverage or rush the passer?

I’m not a big fan of the number change thing. In all honesty, it helps ME watch the game. IDGAF about the players. They’re compensated handsomely for their work. One more wrinkle ain’t gonna kill them. This was inevitable though, considering the league’s dumbest tradition: retiring jerseys #s.

Wholeheartedly agree. It's absolutely going to confuse some personnel based on the scheme they run. 

I'm for expanding numbers to RBs and WRs, but I think it doesn't make any sense to allow TEs to wear those numbers because it's going to screw up some defenses, and I am vehemently opposed to LB/CB/S receiving numbers expansions because it will especially cause problems for OLs and QBs trying to identify LBs at the heat of the moment. 

Yes, they will adjust. Yes, defenses have become so multiple that it largely doesn't make sense anymore. But I totally get Brady's argument, and I also just don't like it at all. My preference would have been: 

QBs: 1-19
RBs: 1-49
WRs: 1-19, 80-89
TEs: 20-49, 80-89 
OL: 50-79
DL: 50-79, 90-99
LB: 40-99 
CB: 1-9, 20-49 
S: 1-9, 20-49 
K/P: 1-19

Exactly, much to do about absolutely nothing.  You’re not going to be to tell who Nick Bosa is if he is wearing the number 5?  Lol...

My only uniform issue is with the Jets current uniform.  It is an absolute eyesore.  Please go back to the legacy uniforms.

Cry babies have to cry. What's he bitching about? Before the rules change, LBs shared the 40s with defensive backs and the 90s with the DL. It's gonna be harder now because LBs and DBs will be able to wear single digits? If that's the case, your coaches and players are morons. 

Seriously. If that didn't hamper things for all these years - supposedly involving QBs or others on offense judging a player's role by uniform number - I'm not seeing how this is going to change things.

Since there've already been such overlaps between adjacent position groups on the same side of the ball - regardless of the player's role on a given play - this is nonsense.

Eff him and his reborn royalty treatment.

This is an absurd post.

It's to sell more jerseys. Nothing more, nothing less. So you can stop crying about "discrimination."

No but I can tell you the number ranges of linebackers, dbs and linemen.  So what is your point?

My point is why does it matter if just about any player on D can do anything. If LB's could only defend the run  or rush the passer but couldn't  cover, and DB's could only cover and not rush or play the run, yeah, identifying  a number would help knowing what he might do but since anyone can do all of those things, who cares .

Yes, I do actually, as noted in the thread on Uni Numbers.

Yes I’m not a fan of it, but it’s also one of those things that’s not a big deal and will get used to it. Hate the new kickoff rules, extra point at first, but is what it is. Whatever

For years the league has been changing the rules for benefitting the offensive side of the ball.

Now they make one little uniform change and that affects both sides of the ball and a qb calls foul?

F him right in the p*ssy.

Can’t cover or rush the passer sure that would describe most players on the Jets defense!

I disagree with your point.  This rule change makes it harder for a younger QB to identify the mike.  More so if he is not the starter.
