One day after Peyton Manning drew two penalties for illegal snaps at Green Bay, Indianapolis Colts Coach Jim Caldwell pleaded with N.F.L. officials on Friday to re-evaluate a rule change that forces players to wait for the umpire to get into his new position before the ball can be put in play. Peyton Manning drew two penalties for illegal snaps during a preseason game against the Green Bay Packers. The league wasted no time in responding to the complaints. "The movement of the umpire to the offensive backfield will happen in the regular season," the league spokesman Michael Signora said in a statement. "We continue to analyze and review the impact of the change in the preseason, and we may announce some adjustments to the mechanics of the position prior to Week 1."
