Really good and comprehensive post, could not agree more. It is the beginning of a long slow decline. I stopped watching last year and won’t waste 3–4 hours of a precious day off on a crappy product. Its just boring compared to college football or even the Premier League. Endless penalties, bad plays, terrible QB play and the rules changes which sucked the life out of it. This is before the endless parade of bad commercials aimed at meatheads. I’m out.
