The NFL doesn't believe they can kill the golden goose, and apparently consider themselves too big too fail. I don't think they are, I just think they're too big too fail overnight. The new rules are worrisome but the broader direction is more so. I suspect they have a new game in mind and they're just gradually getting us there with added layers of offensive minded rule adjustments every season so it's not such a shock to the system. I was disappointed with the changes that made Rodney Harrison play in the back field seem impossible, but after the players got more used to adjusting their hits, I was slightly more okay with it, though it makes me think peoples knees are in much greater danger now. Point is, the game was still very tolerable. It was still pretty much football. The description of the new rules seem potentially game changing. It seems like the direction they want to head in is one where the defender basically just trails the receiver to make the tackle, or gets the pick, and the usefulness of physicality in a corner becomes a thing of yesterday. And who knows what they'll add next season. So how much is too much? Is the NFL simply so great you would watch it no matter how watered down it could hypothetically become over the next ten years? Will you be able to watch far less talented offensive players bury the legacy of NFL legends in a game recreated for stat-compiling? Assuming the NFL continues to layer on these rules that are crushing to the entire concept of defense, where do you realistically think your red line is that, if crossed, would just naturally lead you to more and more look for something else to do on your Sunday after a genuine lack of interest?
