Either the Offense sucks or the Defense sucks, or in the early days they both sucked. Then we trade away our best players. I was going through my complete sets of Falcon's cards today and every team had some shortcoming, whether it be injury, legal trouble, trades, coaching changes, always something. Not really. The biggest reason is that the NFL rules changed. During the 1977 season, it was legal to contact a WR all the way down the field as long as you did not lose contact with them. Glanville installed a system of mugging the WRs and sending everyone else. At the end of the season because offenses across the NFL were struggling terribly, the NFL implemented the 5 yard rule. That ended the Gritz Blitz. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
