I agree totally. Just to add some of these holding calls saves the qb from a sack which usually results in more than ten yards.

block in the back, late hits . calling time outs seconds before a FG thats all needs to go.

Having said that, I think Goodell will flip it over to a five yard penalty sooner or later to promote offenses.
Also, ten yards with the modern passing game isn't that bad. It more kills run based teams than pass based ones.
Exterminate all rational thought, that is the conclusion I have come to

What would upset me most is an 18 game schedule. There's already games that end up meaningless to some teams at the end. It's also gonna be a lot harder to compare stats, etc.

If they take away a sure reception - like the flag on Santonio on Sunday - then I think having them as spot fouls is a good idea, otherwise you would see defenders interfering more on deep passes where they are trailing a receiver or in a bad position to give up the lesser yardage.
In regards to holding, I too think a ten yard penalty is warranted. Compared with false starts and offsides, which a player wouldn't commit on purpose, holding generally occurs on purpose so it should be penalised more.
