Default pass interference rule needs changed ...

It was clear, crystal clear, from the Steeler-Giants game today that the rule of penalization for pass interference needs changed. And changed now.

As Simms/Nantz had said on-air.....it needs changed to a 15-yard penalty. End of story.

The Giants were deep in their own territory - Manning throws a bomb - Keenan Lewis doesn't even touch the receiver and the refs call a fraudulent pass interference on him - and all of a sudden have the ball near the Steelers 20-yard line!!!
Sets the other team up to almost surely score- on a call that never should have been made. These are penalties (and sometimes not anything at all) that are game-changing, HUGE penalities where "mistakes" or "favoritism" by refs cannot be afforded.

Its needs changed. Period

I couldn't agree more. That is an absolutely ridiculous rule. It's bad enough when a team is rewarded with 40 yards when there is actually pass interference.

It's just about criminal when a team is rewarded with 40 yards just because the refs blow a call.

without pass interference being as lethal a penalty as it is, how will poor joe flacco ever become elite?

I been saying this for the last few years. Offenses have way too much leverage against the defense. Lewis defended that pass perfect, only after he deflected the ball did he put a hand on Cruz. Receivers can cause contact and the defender gets called for it. Just more of Goodells point a minute league.

I think it's really funny how in college that's already the rule. If anything they should be swapped with college having the NFL's rule and vice versa. The "spot of the foul" rule would affect the college game much less than an NFL game.

I think the NFL needs to call pass interference a lot less. Offenses can now game plan to just throw deep and expect to get pass interference calls. If the defender so much as touches the receiver, he coul be flagged. Don't like it at all

I think you should be able to challange PI calls. Not sure if it would make a difference or not...

That point was the greatest point Phil Simms has ever made. I think with all the advantages they have given the offense and receivers especially, someone from the competition committee should put that in the next ballet in the off season. I am sure Crapdell will consider it because it doesn't matter to his Fantasy Football checklist, no one gets hurt or benefits from it from that standpoint.

I would even consider half and half. If there is a pass interference in the end zone, then they can put the ball on the one. But in the field of play, you make it 15 yards.
