George,

Like you I enjoy watching the games where the offenses have to scrap for every yard. Unfortunately, with the rules that have been put in place over the recent years there is just way too much advantage to the offenses and the qb.

For instance, yesterday on an important third down stop late in the second half, the falcons forced an incompletion and a punt.... Except for the d lineman pressuring the quarterback swiped his hand at the ball, made incidental contact with Kaepernicks helmet (could hardly be called a slap), so the refs gave them 15 yards and a first down.

Compare this with in the late game where Tom Brady takes off for a run, and when he slides to the ground to protect himself, sticks his leg high in the air kicking the would be tackler in the thigh. Yet no flag, no nothing, because fans want to see points on the board.

There have been times where I've been engrossed in games this year, only to be completely taken out of it when the defender was flagged for tackling too hard, and I just changed the channel.

Oh well, lets just make it the National Flag Football League and call it a day, because you know, people love seeing BIG numbers on the score board.

Rant off, haha, lets just hope the refs stay out of the Super Bowl.
