What rule changes would you like to see in 07?

With the NFL changing or enforcing rules more and more every year, what rule changes would you like to see next year?

I am watching an ESPN classic game of the 1977 AFC divisional playoff game of the Raiders and Colts. Someone just hit the qb after the ball was thrown and he hit his head and took him down by his neck...no call.
That sounds more brutal than what actually happened, but you can't even breeze a pinky finger over the qb without getting a 15 yard penalty these days. So my main rule change would be stop treating QB's like they are your 85 year old grandmother.

If they are going to protect the qb so much they should just make him "two hand touch" so there wont be any question.

I agree.

Those RTP calls are gonna become a real controversy in the playoffs.....I wish they'd change them before the first playoff games before something really bad happens.

Very true, that might have been the worst call in history. Aren't refs supposed to interpret the rules? How about interpreting that Brady would have thrown a completion to his own left foot if he was actually "tucking it". Horrible call.

The same rules I want every year.

1) Either make it two hand touch or let the same rules apply to other players apply to QB's.

2) Major/minor system for pass interference. Little ticky/tack fouls would be a 15 yard minor(and first down) and a major would be just like the rule is now. That way, minor contact and hand checks would not be 50 yard penalties. It is time for this to happen.

3) Go to the college replay/challenge system.

And cost the Skins a win at Denver last season as well. The tuck rule is BS.

I also agree with the first post that the dresses need to be removed from QBs. In the Dallas game at Fed Ex last month, Sean Taylor drew a personal foul for wrapping up Tony Romo's thighs, a picture perfect tackle. The ref deemed that he was going for Romo's knees.

That was a HORRIBLE call. You can only hit the qb in a small 6-12 inch window from nipples to belly button.

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

They definitely need to ease up on the roughing the passer calls, but I wish they would remove that defenseless receiver rule, too. I used to love seeing guys get laid out when they had put a hand on the football. That doesn't mean I'm saying the McCrary hit on Houshmanzedeh should have been legal, but when a guy puts his paw on the football, a safety should be able to take his head off. You don't wanna get hit, don't go over the middle. And for QB's, if they make it any softer, they'll have to wear red jerseys in games!

Forgot about that too. And let them celebrate as a team again.

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

1) Roughing the Passer - needs to be re-evaluated. Its gotten to the point where you cannot hit the quarterback but in the waist. That's rediculous. He is a football player and subject to the same rules as a football player. If you can't hit him, put a red jersey on him and make him completely off limits.
2) Pass Interference - every receiver in the NFL at the end of an incompletion does a flag throwing jester and too many times the referees throws a flag. Defense backs can't touch a receiver but a receiver can push off, run up a defenders back and pick a defender off without penalty. Even worse, sometimes they will call a penalty on the defender on a pick play or when the receiver runs up his back.

3) Touchdown Celebrations - restricting touchdown celebrations to an individual is plain stupid. Football is a team game and a spontaneous team celebration should be encouraged not some individual self-promoting end zone dance. I agree with the ban on use of props but not allowing team celebrations is dumb.
