There are certain rules I accept in the NFL and other that make no sense. Since replay has come into the picture what is allowed to be challenged and what isn't also makes no sense. I just want to see what the general feeling is on these rules and regulations. 1) Penalties negating turnovers when the penalty has no effect on turnover. We are all aware that a block in the back after a pick does not negate posession, the penalty is enforced from the spot of the foul. What I don't and have never understood, is why a late hit on a QB negates a pick. He has no way of knowing when releasing the ball that he will be hit cleanly or not, he has made a decision to throw it to a certain spot, and if he does and it's intercepted then his decision was poor and he should be punished. In last nights game, Ingrams hit came AFTER the turnover IMO....Brees did not know if Ingram would hit him in the stomach, really spear him helmet to helmet (he didn't), or pull up short, offer him a cup of tea and cucumber sandwhich and congratulate him on breaking Unitas record. The point is he already threw the interception prior to being hit, and the penalty should not negate the turnover. The league could either call it a spot foul, no return allowed and 15 yards back from the spot of the pick, or something else. 2) Offsetting penalties Okay, when they are truly offsetting then fine, like a DB and WR interfering with each other, or offsetting Personal fouls. But if logic tells you one team deserves to be punished and the offset removes it then something is wrong. In yesterdays game between the Broncos and the Pats, it was 3 and 4 for the broncs. The pats D jumped off and it was a free play, Manning threw it to a receiver who was flagged for an illegal touch because he had stepped out of bounds. The penalties offset and they repeated 3rd down. This is ludicrous, the point of a 'free play' is you are playing advantage, once the offensive team has not gained an advantage the offsides penalty should have been enforced and it should have been 1st and 10 to the Broncos. 3) Automatic 1st down penalties Some of these have to be, like PI, a spot foul with an automatic first down otherwise you could deck a pass catcher short of the 1st down marker and know his spot foul wouldn't get them the first. Same with defensive holding or illegal hands to the face. But personal and roughing fouls after the play don't make sense. I get that they feel and 3rd and over 15 situation or 4th and 15 situation could theoretically take a hack at someone knowing they won't give up a first, but remember, the officials have the right to simply eject a player from the game for this, the NFL can also fine players for this so I'd like to see this done for intentionally malicous acts instead of ticky tack roughing the passer or punter calls making a 4th and 26 play a first down. 4) Why is PI not reviewable? It is one of the easiest calls to reverse, or to enact in a non call incomplete or pick? It's way easier to determine via replay than some posession in terms of completing the catch or down by contact or spot of the ball calls? All you have to do is allow a coach to throw a flag that his player was interfered with and if they look and it turns out he really was and no timeout is charged, the team is not charged for challenge, how quickly do you think the Saints DBs would have had to keep their hands to themselves? Not to mention there would have been an automatic review of Gates O-PI call. This isn't sour grapes at all, just what rules I don't get and I can't figure out who came up with them in the first place.
