I would like to go back to the rules of the 1980s actually. Scoring will be up because offensive game planning is just better than in the 1970s and defensive game planning and talent have not kept up. Plus offensive coordinators woke up in the mid-late 1980s and realized "hey a quarterback who can avoid the rush is a good thing and we should not send Doug Flutie to Canada because he scrambles)". So it is just harder to get pressure on the quarterback since he actually moves around in the pocket. Pre-1985 quarterbacks literally stood there like statues and were COACHED to not move.

I don't like the rules now. It also puts too much emphasis on the Quarterback. This is a team game. This is not basketball where 1 guy should be able to change a franchise by himself and that 1 guy can only be a quarterback. Quarterbacks have always been the most important players on a team now it is too much. This is in large part due to the rule changes.

That being said most fans like scoring and don't want to see a punt fest (see the complaints about the BCS championship) so it won't happen. Same thing with baseball. Fans generally would rather see a 12-11 game than 2-1 game with a nice hit and run in the middle of it.
