You are right about some of what you say, but so are those big guys when they tell you that.
It's two totally different sports. Tackle football, especially full-field, 11-on-11 has a place for big, slower guys and a place for fast guys. Flag football is primarily for guys that can run, no doubt about it. That's why the bigger guys you play with are saying that. It's true. I damn sure wouldn't want to play flag for that reason. More power to you guys that can run around all day like that. But get your ass in a full-fledged 11/11 full contact game with NFL rules and you might find yourself at a disadvantage, especially if you want to play line.
Not knocking flag football, just saying that it is a totally different sport than tackle football.
So just like you know some of these big, older linemen types couldn't hang running around the field all day, it's probably safe to say that you wouldn't want to put on pads and line up across from them between the tackles.
For what it's worth, you're right about injuries, although I'm sure I'd hurt myself (knees) just as quickly playing flag.
