Keep reviews to scoring plays and turnovers
While taking pass interference out of equation, keep all the other plays available for booth review in the last two minutes only. Outside of that, only scoring plays and turnovers should be able to be challenged by teams.
So that takes out slowing the game down overall but maybe only slows down the last two minutes of each half. Again, isn’t the idea to get it right when it counts the most?
Take Sunday’s game with the Detroit Lions and Chicago Bears. Lions receiver Kenny Golladay spotted a ball a good yard or two forward in hurry up in the last two minutes. Did it end up hurting anything in the end? No, but what if it had? The official didn’t think twice and just put the ball down where the Lions said it was. Again, not a good look.
Is there a perfect solution to all of this? Absolutely not. Will it make everyone happy? Nothing that happens one way or the other will make everyone happy.
At the end of the day though, the NFL should be doing everything to protect the integrity of the game. At this point, that is what is most questionable above all else.
