NFL drops third quarterback rule, 46 active players on game day

With everyone focusing on how the league’s finances will change for the 2011 season and beyond, little attention has been paid to the rules changes that will affect the teams on game days. But one change that the owners and players to agree to will come into play on Sunday afternoons.

The owners and players have agreed to expand game day rosters from 45 to 46 active players. The No. 3 quarterback will no longer be an “emergency” inactive player.

In other words, a team can insert its third-string quarterback for a short period at any point in the game, then take him out and put the starter back in. Previously, the first and second quarterbacks couldn’t re-enter the game if the No. 3 quarterback played before the fourth quarter.

They couldn't make silly little changes like this after the CBA gets worked out? Who the F cares about a scenario that's worked perfectly fine for a long time with the exception of the Bears botching it last year.

Why don't they just let everyone on the 53 man roster be active? I'll never understand this, especially since the owners have to pay them anyway.
