  • I hope the league changes this, its just not fun anymore to see....

    The ridiculous offensive records, set by great players, being broken left and right.

    I am tired of seeing defense not matter:

    The Pats have the worst defense in the NFL, and they will be the #1 seed in the AFC.

    The Packers have the 2nd worst defense in the NFL, and they will be the #1 seed in the NFC.

    This isnt an anomaly either:

    8 of the top 10 offenses in the NFL will make the playoffs, only 1 team in the bottom 10 offenses is competing for a playoff spot(Broncos).

    Whereas 3(maybe 4) of the top 10 defenses in the NFL will make the playoffs and 6 to 8 of the worst 10 defenses in the league will be in the playoffs.

    Defense has never mattered LESS. The stats are resounding.

    Addressing this should be the TOP priority of the NFL in the offseason. They have tipped the scales too much in offense's favor. They need to start making rule changes. I feel they should start with coverage rules making them more resemble the college rules, the way they used to be.

    Yeah because the NFL wants a bunch of defense games, no, they want ratings.

      It's flag football and we'll see linebackers drop even farther in the draft

        Huge runs and passes is what makes people tune in. That's the only thing they care about.

          Fixed for you. You think anybody watches to see the occasional long run?

            If that's the case, then we might actually draft one one of these days.

                Yeah I love watching Sproles with a long run, it's actually fun and exciting.

                People want to see that. I get excited when Bradshaw runs more than 10 yards.

                  Im not asking that they make games a bunch of 7-3 scores. I am asking they make defense matter again. As I showed above through stats, defense is useless right now. It amounts to hoping an offense will mess up so you get the ball back.

                  Did you see the packers game today? Guess what Packer QB now has the best game by a packer QB ever? Was it Bart Starr? No. Brett Favre? Nope. Well, then Im sure it has to be Aaron Rodgers. Nope. Its Matt Flynn, in his 1st start ever....

                  Oh and if you combine the total yards of Stafford and Flynn, you have 1000 passing yards in today's game alone.(Flynn 480, Stafford 520) Long term, I think this is bad for football. We are turning into arena football, or the NBA.

                  Right now There are 2 QBs who not only beat Marinos passing record this year, but they beat it by a LOT. What is amazing is neither of these 2 Qbs is the favorite for the NFL MVP. Nope, the favorite for that is another QB.

                    I love good defensive games.

                    Those days are over. The league has made it so that offense will rule. You can't touch an offensive player and dare they take a hit that is a little to tough it's a flag.

                      Offense=ratings, Rating=money.........if any thing expect more changes to help the offenses even more...

                        I agree 100% that they changed the rules to get ratings, but I 100%
                        disagree that this is good for the sport. It really dilutes the game. The the NFL might as well now be the WWE. They can call it National Football Entertainment and just fix the games at this point. After that game against the Jets last week it seemed like somebody was in the ref's ears trying to fix that one.

                          Yea the league has gone to a dumpster fire.
                          Really pathetic. I hope Dan Marino doesnt truly feel beaten since the fact Marino would be going on a 6,000 yard season in Todays NFL.

                            [/quote]Do you think I disagree with you? The NFL has become a joke, I used to post, tweet, facebook it to death, but nothing is gonna happen, so I really don't care anymore.

                            I personally feel that these are all steps to eventually expand the regular season, another thing I don't want to see but I feel is inevitable.

                              The NFL was already the most popular sport in this country. They're just greedy... EA Sports throwing them all that money to exclusively make football videogames confirms it.

                              It's ridiculous to see a record held by over 20 years get broken by 2 QB's. To the poster that said this is turning into the NBA, some teams actually play defense. I'm debating should I watch the Bulls tonight over this flag football mess.
