Its not evolving naturally , it evolves every time a big name gets hurt.
Brady , Cushing , Peyton .... all had rules changed in recent years cause they got hurt.
Injuries are a part of the game ... even in basketball , whats suppose to be a non contact sport .... injuries happen.
They have changed the game so much and to the advantage of the offense , it really puts teams without those big name QB's in a bind. Teams use to be able to compensate for a poor passing game with good defense and running the ball well.
Now .... you don't have that option.
