I think it's a fair question to ask. I think it's perfectly understandable that some people enjoyed the old-school tough defensive contests, and don't want to see them go away. I don't think it's unreasonable to say that the defense should have a decent amount of time to set up and call a play before the ball is snapped. I don't agree with everything the OP said but will defend his right to say it without being negged to death.
