This could be a disaster if attempted to implement, but it would be nice if rule changes were listed not only as they started, but also how long they lasted Autkm 05:44, 14 January 2007 (UTC)

Well, we could add cross references to the other "Major rule changes" sections on the NFL season articles. For example, currently on 1986 NFL season#Major rule changes on the entry about the then-new instant replay system, it is mentioned that it was repealed in 1992. But so far, that is really the only one. Zzyzx11 (Talk) 12:19, 14 January 2007 (UTC)

Replacement players[edit]

For the people who want to know about it (like myself, since I was 1 at the time), it should go into at least some detail about the replacement players. This seems like a major deal, and yet there is only a brief mention of it. TJ Spyke 04:58, 6 February 2007 (UTC)

Rule Changes[edit]

What was the penalty for defensive pass interference in their own end zone before the rule change. This would be interesting. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Asherkobin (talkcontribs) 05:13, 11 January 2008 (UTC)

Season Breakdown[edit]

I think it would be a good idea to have an extra schedule showing each team's record with replacement players (3 games) and with regular players (12 games), and then the over-all record.Juve2000 (talk) 01:05, 29 September 2010 (UTC)
