    The NFL vs The Game Itself (Rule Changes in the 21st Century)

    I used to generally agree with the rule changes coming out of the 1990s. And even then, the bad rule changes - while outrageous - seemed far and few in between; like the excessive celebration rule change in 2000 or the crackdowns on taunting and roughing the passer the next year after. But imo...

    Eliminating the kickoff - NFL can't be serious can they?

    NFL scoring discussion

    In 1980, teams averaged 20.5 points a game. This year they're averaging 24.2 points a game, an increase of 3.7 points a game per team over a 38 year period, and increase of 18.0% over that time frame. Why is scoring up so much? Well, clearly yards are easier to gain, especially by way of...

    A Modest Proposal: Removing the Defense from the field

    Now that the league is almost there already, how would fans feel about removing the entire defense from the football field? It would an amazing spectacle (though not much different from what we’re seeing anyway) to see these quarterbacks throw hundreds of touchdowns per game. Fans would get...

    Remember when 300 passing yards was considered a good day?

    I know, I know, there are rules favoring offenses and the protection of quarterbacks that extend drives........but still.......isn't it crazy to think that 17 quarterbacks threw for 295+ yards this past weekend? Five of them went over 400 yards (Goff, Luck, Carr, Cousins, Ryan). Due to bye...
