i guess they could make even touching a kicker completely illegal, and by extension make any attempts to block kicks illegal. and also just do away with the kick return, which has been hinted at as being distinctly possible. that is, quite frankly, the only way i can see it being safe for a woman to play in the NFL. as rachel said, even college guys get absolutely destroyed because they haven't spent the time getting the extra bulk to play in the NFL. i just can't see a normal woman (even an extremely athletic one) being able to gain the necessary bulk for it to be even remotely safe. even with all the pads. and kickers pads are complete jokes compared to someone like a linebacker.
