NFL rules i learned today

1. in the final 2 minutes of a half, a fumble cannot be advanced by the offense
2. if the 3rd QB is put into the game before the 4th quarter, the #1 and #2 QBs cannot re-enter the game

i disagree with both, especially the second. where's the harm in freely subbing in your QBs? How does this recent flurry of wildcat formations factor into this? are there any other positions where you have to declare your depthchart at the start of the game? what rules apply to those positions?
