8. Protecting read-option quarterbacks in the pocket
Quarterbacks are already treated like they are made out of glass. If a quarterback wants to run the option, that's fine. However, a defender should be able to pop him like a paper bag if he does so. Again, this speaks to fairness. Stop protecting all the quarterbacks constantly. If they are threatening to be a runner, cream them.
Currently, a quarterback can be hit if he is in the process of the read-option within the pocket. Please, leave the rule alone.
I hate this one generally. If you are going to act like you have the ball, you get hit like you have the ball. But an additional reason is because it will become a playoff differential on how the game is played like PI is now. Make game changing discretionary ticky tack calls during the season to "enforce the rule" and then during the playoffs "let them play."
