    I have a solution to the “protect the QB at all costs” mentality: put a flag on the QB and only the QB. The play is done when the flag is pulled. He is down at that spot. If the ball gets released AFTER the flag has been grabbed, incomplete pass. Too bad, so sad.

      I totally agree. Also, the QB should never be allowed to become a “runner” when outside of the pocket. The flag should always count. That way a defender can go for the flag and the QB won’t get any cheap yards by dancing along the sideline or pretending to slide. They can’t have it both ways. If the quarterback is to be treated like Waterford Crystal then you can’t have Quarterbacks getting cheap yards by exploiting the roughness penalties.

      The rules have gotten so favorable for Quarterbacks and Receivers that the defense has no chance. I used to say, imagine what Jim Kelly and Dan Marino could do with today’s rules. Now, it’s imagine what Jay Schroeder could do with today’s rules. He’d light it up!
