What was the AAFC system?

 

I'm not THAT upset by the loss of a system that was only there since the 70s.

It seems that they kind of reversed what the NFL was doing.
QB (60-69)

FB (70-79)
HB (80-89)
WR/TE (50-59)
OT (40-49)
OG (30-39)
C (20-29)

This is awful, there is no need for a linebacker to wear a low number. I associate 11 with cole Beazley a scrawny slot reciever before I ever would a linebacker.

 

And if you've watched Parsons play for the last three years, that's the number you associate with him, so it makes sense for him to continue wearing it. Count me as one person who is thankful the NFL relaxed the rules because of that continuity.

And those who haven’t will go “why the :censored: is a QB playing LB”

And then they'll find out the arbitrary number rule was relaxed and either scream at the clouds or get over it. I do wonder if those people complain every time they attend a high school or college football game.

Ultimately, I think teams are going to limit the number of non-QB, K, or P players will be able to wear 1-19. They have to reserve what...probably 8 spots for these numbers? 3 active QBs, 1 or 2 practice squad QBs, 1 K, 1 P, and maybe 1 practice squad K/P.

IDK why but a LB wearing a number in the teens just feels wrong in the NFL and I watch college football too. I guess it'll just take a little getting used too.

Exactly my thoughts...I am used to Penn State LB wearing single digits or a number in the teens. But in the NFL, it just looks weird.

Cowboys rookie LB Micah Parsons is sticking with 11

I’m far from a Cowboys fan and I really like this decision.


I, too, really like this decision. I honestly thought that I would hate it, but 11 is going to look so good on the field. 

 

It’s still going to take some getting use to though.

I don't attend high school or college football games so their rules are irrelevant to me.  Not everyone is SPORTS obsessed and attends everything where there's some kind of ball in play.

I get what you are saying here but I just like a professional league to look different than a non but I guess that’s just an old man thing.

But what exactly is “professional” about grouping positions by numbers, other than that the league has adhered to those rules for so long that you don’t know any different?

It would actually be their lack of rules that are irrelevant to you. But I digress.

People are allowed to dislike new things without being "old man who hates what's in these days," you know. Sometimes something new happens and people- even young people- don't like it.

I get it- you think this is great- but maybe others dislike it for valid reasons too?

I’m young. I don’t particularly like the overuse of single digits, but I know I’ll get over it eventually. Personally, it’s probably why I’m not making such a big stink about it.

 

To each their own
