NFL could change DPI from spot foul to 15-yard penalty

Recommended Posts

This big news if a corner is getting beat deep just hold the guy and take the 15 yards

http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap3000000917735/article/nfl-could-change-dpi-from-spot-foul-to-15yard-penalty

"The NFL is reportedly looking at implementing a number of rule changes, some expected (clarifying the catch rule) and some not so.

One of the surprising proposals offered by the Competition Committee is to change the penalty for defensive pass interference from a spot foul to a 15-yard penalty at most, NFL Network's Judy Battista reported Tuesday. This is more in line with how the game is refereed on the collegiate level."...............................

I don't like it. Get beat deep, just maul the WR. Give them 15 yards and a 1st and move on. NFL players are more savvy than college players. They'd get that pounded into their heads. Other than blown coverages I think it would really put a damper on the vertical passing game. These guys would get coached to just maul the WR on any deep ball that they couldn't make a play on.

I think this has been proposed before and shot down.

It's a terrible idea.

As long as the other team gets 15 yards, a first down, and no clock run off then it’s completely fair.

Or, conversely, merely put a hot, steamy breath of air on the back of a WR's neck and be penalized 50 yards.

It all kinda averages out.

I think it should be minimum 15 yds then half the distance of the penalty placement if it's over 30 yards. 50 yards down feild is a 25 yard penalty.

Great.........now we can resign Ricky Manning Jr.

LOL! It's true. The crackdown on pass interference and illegal contact pretty much ended his career.

Why not take the penalty as opposed to giving up 50 yards?  

This is professional football.  Don't commit the penalty if you don't want to pay the price. 

If it's not broke,  don't fix it.  It's worked for decades.

Obvious PI (tackling or wrapping a wr) to prevent a big play should be a spot foul. The challenge in this would be determining whether it is.

This would be the only time I'd be for this rule. The officiating can really change the outcome of a game because of one incorrect PI call.
