If anything, the NFL needs to get rid of the BS 'illegal contact' penalties.
The rules of football remind me of Napoleonic wars. We're wearing Red coats, you're wearing Blue coats. We will line up on one side and shoot at you if you line up on the other side and shoot at us. Got it, good.
Are defenses not sophisticated enough to handle seeing multiple men in motion? Why do you need 6 men on the line of scrimmage? What a fundamentally strange and arbitrary rule? If you don't have 6 men on the line (which essentially means that one WR need to pay attention and take one step forward), do you get a five yard penalty and are haunted by the ghost of Woody Hayes?
I want to see creativity in the game, and the rules of football are designed to stop creativity at every turn.
