Football Insiders Are Saying

"Get rid of the facemask"

"I've been saying for 15 years we ought to get rid of the facemask," Joe Paterno said on his weekly conference call. "Then you go back to shoulder blocking, shoulder tackling, and you wouldn't have all those heroes out there."

"Take the mask off"

"I said a long time ago if you want to change the game take the mask off the helmet," Mike Ditka told a gathering of reporters on Wednesday in Pittsburgh. "It will change the game a lot. If you want to change the game and get it back to where people aren't striking with the head and using the head as a weapon, take the mask off the helmet."

"Take the helmet off"

"If you want to prevent concussions, take the helmet off: Play old-school football with the leather helmets, no facemask," Hines Ward said. "When you put a helmet on you're going to use it as a weapon, just like you use shoulder pads as a weapon."
