NFL increasing focus on defensive holding in General NFL Talk Posted July 30, 2014 The CFL has only three downs and a bigger field, hence the massive amount of passing. These rule changes the Competition Committee are coming up with... what a joke. It used to be a special thing when a QB passed for 400-500 yards in a game. Now it's pretty much become almost an every day occurrence. And 5000 yard seasons will also become meh. Soon 6000 will be the standard.
