Darnold's Forehead Posted January 30 Share Posted January 30 Get rid of automatic first downs and “spot of foul” penalties. It should be yardage only. An offense that fails a 3rd and 22 shouldn’t get a free 1st down because of a hands to the face or facemask from the defense. They should get a yardage penalty and replay the down. The cost of penalties are too high given how often they occur and therefore affect the outcome of games too much. Same as pass interference. There is no telling the WR would have caught it had no interference occurred. Make it a 10 yard penalty minimum and replay the down. Just let the players earn their yardage. That game could have also been decided by KC throwing a bomb, drawing a DPI and kicking a field goal. That should never happen imo. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
