Top Ten Cloves: Ways NFL will tweak rules in wake of Plaxico Burress shooting

By J. Thomas Duffy

News Item: Giants suspend Super Bowl hero Plaxico Burress

10. Everytime announcers say "It's a real duel here today," game stops so they can have a "real duel."

9. NFL.Com soon to offer official team handguns, with your team's logo on the handle!

8. Draw Plays -- everyone clears out and it's a shootout between the quarterback and middle linebacker

7. Extra 5 yards tacked onto crack-back blocking penalty if offending player is carrying a concealed weapon.

6. Field goal records broken all day long, as now will be conducted with football-shooting cannon.

5. Halftime shows? ... What else other than skeet shooting?

4. Burress's shooting kicks off new trend -- instead of doing end zone dance after scoring touchdowns, players shoot themselves in leg.

3. QBs who have a "rifle for an arm" can now carry rifles, holding defense at bay while they complete pass.

2. Defensive backs can pistol-whip wide receivers, but only within the first 5 yards from the line of scrimmage.

1. Offenses that run the "Shotgun Offense" can use real, loaded shotguns.
