Too Many Penalties
We’re seeing more penalties in the NFL than ever before and it’s making it an unwatchable product. Pete Carroll justifiably complained when the Cowboys beat the Seahawks in 2023. The teams had a combined 19 flags for 257 yards as the officials made their mark on the game.
Carroll said that there were too many flags on both sides and that we need to get this out of football. He’s right because this is happening in too many games these days. Even if the referees might be technically correct, they need to think about the integrity of the game as well (via Bleacher Report).
