Do you think the new pass interference replay rules will help us or hurt us?

60 posts in this topic

How do you feel about this new rule? Do you think it will help us or hurt us? Do you think our secondary gets away with a lot of pass interference? This should help Julio Jones but they can go after offensive pass interference also. Are there any other teams besides the Falcons who you think will be effected positively or negatively by this new rule? Your thoughts?

It’ll help the Saints, this rule was for them and they will benefit first and foremost from it, especially when we play them.

It will **** Julio for sure. I think it will hurt Trufant who is every bit as grabby as Alford but has gotten away with it for a long time due to the guy on the opposite side of the field attracting more attention

It will definitely hurt us, we already have the most 3rd-and-long bailout penalties called against us every year as it is. It’s going to be compounded now lol. 

Hopefully Alford leaving will help

Hopefully the refs start letting the players play and force the coaches to use a challenge to review the "interference". I live in a fantasy world though.

It's hard to imagine the Falcons getting any worse treatment on either side of PI calls, but with the Clown Shoe zebras the league has you gotta be concerned.

I'm more concerned it'll hurt our WR group on OPI than the other way around. Already mentioned above, but we seem to get an extraordinary amount of penalties that seem to keep drives going for whomever the opponent of the week is

It is going to make football less enjoyable. PI is already enforced inconsistently. Now, we are going to add another level of frustration. It will be like the old catch rules where fans will have no idea what PI will be.

My problem with making this a review call is it will have no end.  It’s like offensive line holding - goes on every play.

Same here. Its too subjective

It will lead to even more controversy.  “

Why did you call this PI for their team but not our team?”

It would have been nice when Richard Sherman mugged Julio and got away with it 

i hated how sea fans rebutted by saying JJ grabbed or pushed off at the line..thats stuff is legal within 5 yards not 30 yards downfield
