    I have been seeing a trend lately where all the new rules are to help the offense? When did the game turn into a unfair advantage for the Defense?

    I think they do this under the premise that people want to see more high-scoring, fast-paced games and big plays. It's marketing and the pursuit of making more money.
    Thanks for all the yards, TDs, and memories, Priest!

    I think it's unfair. Make it equal on both sides.

    If they did that, they wouldn't sell all those Manning and T.O. jerseys every year.

    I think the mind set is that high powered offense puts more butts in the seats, but I could be wrong.

    Agreed! I, too, believe this to be the case; it's a marketing ploy.

    I despise the way the rules have been getting 'geared' toward the offense. Let the Arena leagues cheat their defensive players. I like the game of football to be played fairly. I don't believe in a sixty yard penalty. I feel that if they are going to penalize the defense as harshly as they do, then they need to start penalizing the offense in a similar fashion. Let's say 25 yards and an automatic fourth down, for holding. And, start actually calling holding.

    Of course that would be ridiculous, but the current offensively-swayed rules are equally ridiculous.

    This, in no way, suggests that it is wise for a head coach to not want his team to score thirty points in todays NFL.

    Herm would hate that.
    THAT quarterback is NOT a Pro Bowl quarterback. Never was and never will be.
