I can't be the only one who's tired of seeing professional quarterbacks toss away the ball as they're being dragged to the ground, and getting away with it. It's time for the NFL to change its intentional grounding rule.

The NFL's current rule reads as follows:

Intentional grounding will be called when a passer, facing an imminent loss of yardage due to pressure from the defense, throws a forward pass without a realistic chance of completion.

Intentional grounding will not be called when a passer, while out of the pocket and facing an imminent loss of yardage, throws a pass that lands at or beyond the line of scrimmage, even if no offensive player(s) have a realistic chance to catch the ball (including if the ball lands out of bounds over the sideline or end line).

The NFL should scrap this second paragraph entirely. Professional quarterbacks shouldn't be able to doge a sack by taking a couple lateral steps and chucking the ball towards the stands.
