Per game, it looks like Minnesota, with mostly Case Keenum as the leader, but Houston's QBs piled together some impressive numbers as well.

It won't matter, there's only one solution: A CATCH IS A NON-REVIEWABLE JUDGMENT CALL, as long as there is bullshit replay, some asshole Al Riveron type will notice some other reason to micromanage a situation and again back to square one.

'70's, 80's, 90's, somehow we knew what a catch was then. Can't we just go back to that?


Exactly! FUCK REPLAY! Make the game a JOY again.

They'd have to do away with the 10 camera angles and the ultra high def slow mo replays for the viewing audiences. Otherwise there will be non-stop outrage throughout the world of social media after each and every game. It would make the current post-game outrages look like child's play. You'd probably beg for them to bring back replay.

You know which QB led the NFL in DPI yards last year?


I think PIT may have led in OPI

Ben Roethlisberger led the NFL in yards gained by DPI. (299)

Actually, PIT was third. NE was #1 at 355

LOL! As if there isn't constant outrage with replay! Replay itself causes most of it. Just move on quickly between plays, FORCE the networks to FORCE the announcers to not point out the few errors that they think happen. FORCE them to not show replays of catches and FORCE them to not show slow motion replays... make all of that a part of the contract.

And I don't care if the post game outrages are worse, at least during the game it would be ignored and I would feel happier watching the game and would enjoy the experience more.

For me, it's not a religion, it's just a TV show. I HONESTLY, HONESTLY, HONESTLY don't care if they get things perfect, I just want it to be the way it was again. I know they won't do that, actually I hope the XFL goes no replay, I might quit the NFL for the XFL if they do.

Actually, I am giving up football a lot for minor league soccer, because the great thing is that soccer currently doesn't use replay, and the minor leagues can't afford it, making that sport GREAT!

Actually I like the spot foul, it's always helped Ben, I like the EXTREME penalty, it's FUN. FUN matters more than anything. Hope they don't do this. More ruination of a formerly great game, I LOVE SOCCER NOW. Football is slow and boring, too many rules and too much stoppage. Way too much review and nitpicking, seriously I am really walking away from this game a lot, I will watch the Steelers games ONLY, almost nothing else as far as this boring sport.

I’m going by football outsiders and Aditi. I suspect there’s something else included in your numbers, like holding or declined penalties.

It was almost the identical number you had for Ben at 300.

And it SHOULD include defensive holding. And the relevant number is penalty called, not only accepted (in those cases where the receiver still catches the ball).

Football Outsiders must be accepted penalties only...
Brady 12/287, Rivers 16/231, KEENUM 14/284, BEN 14/299
