Forward progress, which isn't even reviewable because there's no sound in the replay booth. Bullshit.

This isn't really a rule, but more of a culture shift. Apparently, they tell the referees that if they even think there's a PI or roughing the passer, throw the flag. I think this is the wrong way to approach the games. They should be telling the refs that if they aren't sure, don't throw the flag. We can all tell when there's a Roughing the passer or a PI--it's just something we feel in our gut. They should let the refs have the same discretion.

Hitting a defenseless receiver. They call it even if the receiver has his hands on the ball. Used to it was the QBs job to not make his we defenseless.

this and the phantom roughing calls. Also, all penalties should be reviewable.

Illegal contact or PI

I'm fine with the roughing the passer stuff, now that we have a franchise QB. Anything that ensures that Cam stays healthy and keeps his legs under him is fine with me.

The defenseless receiver stuff is garbage (unless of course it is a Boldin-esque hit to the head)

Id like to see them do away with with a lot of the "protect the player" type penalties. "Defenseless" receivers and "away from the play" hell even the ticky-tack roughing the passer crap.

Instead Id like to see this.

If you knock someone out of the game and a flag is thrown you have to go out for the same amount of time the hurt player misses.

Take a cheap shot and knock a guy of the game? Then off to the showers for you.

Cheap shot a guy and end his season? Say bye-bye to your team for the balance of the season.

End someones career? Better hope you actually got a degree.

Of course, for the last two there would need to be an appeals process where someone could get back in the game if the punishment really exceeded what was warranted.

You want to stop the senseless violence of the game while maintaining its intensity? Then put a real price on some of the cheap poo that's happening. Make guys focus on technique over brutality.

agree with defenseless receiver and 5 yard contact rule is pure garbage.

yes I would like to keep Cam protected but Cam is big, agile, and self-aware. he can take care of himself. If you can't take the QB out when you get a shot you have ruined probably the greatest equalizer the game has ever known. If owners are whining about the money in the guaranteed contracts, STOP GUARANTEEING THE GOTDAMN CONTRACTS !!

2 things should be reviewed by the NFL and 3 rules should be reviewd by the Refs.

NFL- Stupid kickoff rule cause no one likes to see the ball fly into the endzone almost every time.

NFL- Over celebration rule, Yes I understand you should not go crazy far but the NFL is about entertainment also and that should be allowed.

Oh and one more NFL thing.... Stop GODDELL from taxing players for crazy reasons!!!! Its stupid when a player lays down a good hit and also has to fork over his pay for doing so.

Refs- PI, Roughing the passer, and that stupid idea they came up with where "if you dont know throw the flag"! fuging stupid as the fining players crap.

With the lawsuits of former players with post-concussion syndromes, it will never happen.

this is one of the reasons that penalties should be up for review. they are throwing the flag pretty indiscriminately as of late and they have been pretty clear that this is what they are doing and even stated this was the case in preparing for the year. "if in doubt, let it fly" has been the standard this year and it doesn't seem that will change.
