I actually feel any celebration should be a team celebration, no individual celebration.

Re: What rule changes would you like to see in 07?

1. Loosen the roughing the passer rule or make it more extreme. You can only hit the QB if he is outside the tackle box but he has to release the ball within 3 seconds of the snap or it's a 5 yd penalty. Is that ridiculous, of course it is, but so are some of the calls they make.

2. Make pass interference like a face mask.. 5 yds for incidental contact, 15 for intentionally impeding or grabbing a receiver..

3. Expand the game day rosters to 58 players..

4. Bring back the celebrations!

Re: What rule changes would you like to see in 07?

I would like to see replay abolished. The refs rely on it too much. It seems like they make more bad calls now, than before.

As for the QB issue, I think the rules about protecting them are necessary. Here's why:
The QB has to stand still (mostly), and look down-field. He's basically a sitting duck. So, should it be legal to just clothesline him right in the neck, while he's looking away from you -- totally exposed? Or how about slamming your helmet into his? Or how about tackling him at the knees -- why can't you just break his legs?

Basically, if you want to have passing -- and QB's available to complete the passes -- then you have to protect the QB. Which means that you have to tackle him at the torso -- not the head, not the knees -- the body (how tackling is supposed to be performed).

The celebration rules suck too. What's the problem with celebrating? So dumb.

1. Get rid of the BS roughing the passer.
2. Get rid of any "look at me" celebrations (not just in the endzone but after a first down, big tackle, interception, whatever...)
3. Decide upon a way in which to interpret the "illegal motion" penalty so that the skins aren't screwed at least 3 times per season for shifting formations.
4. Expand the 5 yard bump zone in pass coverage to 15 yards and stop calling pass interference on incidental contact/hand checking.
5. Ban any announcer for more than 5 consecutive minutes of "Star" blowing, especially in the case of Brett Favre, Tony Romo, T.O. and Joey Porter. (ok, this isn't really a in game issue but it still should be eliminated...)

I agree whole heartedly with you on the QB. A lot of these QBs are oblivious to wahts goin' on around them and can get pasted and not even know who or what hit'em.

Re: What rule changes would you like to see in 07?

3 Rules: The excessive celebration rule is stupid. The rules protecting the QB is way too ticky tacky. I'm not saying the defender is allowed to kill the guy, and head shots should be a no-no, but I remember watching the last Super Bowl the Redskins played against the Bills. Jim Kelly was getting thrown all over the place. Nowadays, the Redskins would've had about 100 yards in personal foul calls if that rule was applied back in those days.
Finally, I hate the 5 yard hold rule. I think the refs need to let the defenders and WRs play. Certainly if the CB is holding the guy's hand all the way down the field I can calling it, but just call it as pass interference.

Re: What rule changes would you like to see in 07?

i think they should eliminate the force out rule. i dont think they have it in college, and i think its a dumb rule. if he cant land in bounds, then it isnt a catch

Celebration is fine, as long as it's celebrating, not degrading the other team. That's one of the biggest downsides to watching sports anymore, in my opinion. I hate it when I have to watch some jackass behaving as if he were in the WWE instead of the NFL. The whole taunting/self promotion trend is the epitomy of no class.

Absolutely. It'd be nice if the TV cameras didn't show it. I wish they wouldn't do that.

#1 Roughing the Passer

#2 Excessive Celebrations

#3 I want some type of review on a push-out on a catch out of bounds and pass interference calls.

Re: What rule changes would you like to see in 07?

The NFL is a business, it doesn't want to see a Peyton Manning or Tom Brady take a serious injury. It does suck when they protect qb's and penalize defenders for merely playing football, but in the end i think it makes sense and is best for everyone. Besides, it's not the same with a bunch of starting qb's injured. And i know if there were no roughing the passer penalties and say Jason Campbell took a season ender, none of us would be happy campers.

Re: What rule changes would you like to see in 07?

How about repealing the Pass Interference rule changes adopted several years back. No one is mentioning them, and everyone is talking about celebration penalties??? How about the NFL ruining the game of football, so they can get higher crowds by higher scoring games.

That to me is the biggest insult to the game of football. Of course it will not be changed...

Re: What rule changes would you like to see in 07?

How about changing the way overtime is played in the NFL.

It is so anti-climatic watching 2 teams slug it out for 3 hours and then watch it end on a coin flip, one first down, and a 48-yard field goal.

I think they should adopt some variation of the college overtime or just play an extra 8 mins.

Loosen up on the celebrations, loosen up on the roughing the passer calls (which they'll never do), allow pass interference and pushout calls to be reviewable.
