or, half the distance to the spot of the foul? 40 yard play would then only result in 20 yard penalty? Still too much?

I'd be happy with just a new set of downs, maybe 5 yards

Since its a presumed completion the QB should get credit for a completion.

As per the penalty calling and remedy, I think it should be as is, but a potential challenge should occur. The QB's know our CB's are stupid so they will toss it up. Wait till that POS Flacco gets us, he will be tossing it up for grabs constantly.
It may be a mandatory challenge where the booth reviews it. Its not a complicated challenge, one look see you can tell.

I agree with this! Especially when it's BB to #17 ... if the defenders interfere with a 40 yard pass play, darn it I want those 40 yards back!

And since this is such a critical penality, make it reviewable. It will still be subjective, but better than the way it is now.

reading through responses, i'd like to think it would be changed - because as someone said - it was downright criminal to get deep from within one's own territory to the other guys 20 yard line - because of a call "that never happened". Criminal.
But unfortunately - this is exactly what the current NFL league cronies want. High scoring offense. And this plays right into their hands.....no matter how wrong the call is. Doubt it ever gets changed.

And the standard response to any contact on a missed pass play is to pout and plea for a PI call. It is embarrassing. The players should see themselves on TV doing that - they look stupid.

Coughlin is good at whining, every deep ball he had his hands in the air and was running at an official

Almost as bad as Harbaugh, not quite though.

Coughlin's a chump, being bailed out by a great team.

PI isn't going away. Big exciting offensive plays are what Goodell wants on TV. He's not going to take away such an "Exciting" offensive penalty. Since PI isn't going away, I personally think any WR that jumps up and starts doing the PI Flag Dance should immediately be flagged himself for unsportsmanlike.
