Former Falcon running back Jamal Anderson called in to The Opening Drive today to weigh in on the NFL rule changes and in particular the lowering of the helmet rule that was passed yesterday. Jamal doesn’t like the rule and made that clear during the interview. He also said this is being looked at as a running back rule, but he said that is not the case and it affects defensive players as well.
