    Wink A perfect way to reduce all the gaudy passing numbers

    Count all forward passes caught at or behind the line of scrimmage as runs.

    Discuss.

Then I seperated with [name redacted] and the other girls and went with another group, and everything else happened, and I was told about it this morning and felt I needed to give my statement. Looking back and hearing all of the details, it seems to me that it was a set-up, and so I think this needed to be told."

    I've actually always wondered why those aren't counted as runs.

    I first pondered such a rule change after watching the Saints and Eagles last Monday night. I saw Drew Brees drop back and then throw a very short pass to a RB who was still about two yards behind the line of scrimmage. I actually asked myself out loud, "If you're going to do that, then why not just hand the ball off?"

    Honestly, the more I've thought about it, the more I've wondered as well. A really short pass that's caught behind the line of scrimmage is no riskier than tossing the ball laterally or backward to a RB. It's essentially a "forward hand-off." I'm beginning to believe that a forward pass needs to be caught downfield.

    Except for the fact every season multiple passes like that are picked off. Spencer got one yesterday, and JPP got one 2 weeks ago against the Cowboys. Those are just the 2 Dallas has been involved with in 3 weeks

    its true. You even threw him in your Top 3 QB's this year. I just can't help but laugh, though.

    I wish they would as well but for teams who cant run this would kill them...Rodgers has no issues and I doubt his numbers would change but our run game is horrid and use the short passing attack to open things up.

    Just take out the P Manning rule where Defenders can actually ****ing defend and the numbers will go down. Corners cant play defense when every little touch or grab ends up being a flag

    How would this negatively affect any team? You would still play exactly the same, just those short passes would be considered running yardage instead of passing yardage.
