The games Iíve seen thus far have been excruciating.  Not just Eagles games either.  The shtein weíre being fed by the NFL isnít football.  Itís namby pamby PC bullshtein.   Whatís happened is theyíve allowed the lawyers and insurance companies to legislate away the excitement of the game by all but disallowing violent contact.  Basically itís glorified flag football and a heavily regulated & sissified version at that.

this is as trump supporter as anything ive ever read

they dont want qbs getting hurt because qb injuries kill ratings and fantasy stats. its simple. the rules are there to prevent the qbs from getting touched. the sport depends on healthy, good qbs.

some of the RPT calls are ridiculous. hopefully they fix.

I donít have a problem with them trying to take some of the violence out of the game. I do have a problem with the games being constantly interrupted and shaped by referees.

Kind of ridiculous to watch a sport where the action takes place in ten second bursts once a minute, and then half of that action is being undone by penalties. No one who didnít grow up with the game is going to be attracted to watching that.

Football is a violent game.  Itís always been that way from the start.  Legislating aggression out of the game will ruin it.  Thatís the real problem theyíre facing.  Football isnít even football anymore.

Huge difference between trying to take the head shots out and throwing a flag for falling on (or breathing on) a QB.

JPP grazed Rapelisbergers helmet last night and was flagged for roughing the passer. Reminded me of when Trent Cole grazed Peyton Manningís helmet and was flagged years ago

yea i mean this is fair take

flags so far this year are up about 1 per game from last season and 2 from a decade ago. pretty easy to guess where that extra flag is coming from. so on the whole its not like theres more holding penalties than before. they just need to fix up what constitutes RTP or at least make it reviewable

I saw that play and cursed the NFL.

If QB injuries so drastically cut the money stream that they must be protected regardless the effect is has on the game, why not disallow sacks entirely?  Relegate the D line to solely a run-stopping function, put more players in coverage, and give the fans/gamblers a product that routinely yields combined final scores in triple digits.   Would have fewer penalties to slow the game down, and everyone gets more money.  Win win!

ya think?

there were more roughing the passers last night in the first 25 minutes of the game than there has been in any full game since 2001

on pace for 187 this year (though to be fair they cant possibly keep up this pace) there were 105 last year

i still get way more mad at the pathetic PI calls in the league...i would say at least half of those are terrible calls....i dont even care about the total number...but giving teams brutal PI penalties that end up always in a first down and many times giving the offensive team huge chunks of yards they didnt deserve has cost teams games on the regular and has borderline ruined the sport

I just want to add that Rapelisburger's flop was at least as awful as the flag itself.  You gonna act like that, maybe you should go to the sideline and have concussion protocol initiated.

PI should be reviewable. Itís insane that something can be a 40 yard play and thereís no mechanism for making sure the call was right. Even if itís upheld 90% of the time at least get rid of the egregious ones.

PI should be 15 yards rather than spot fouls.
