In college, yards lost on sacks are counted as rushing yards. In the NFL they're counted as passing yards. Do you think sacks should count as rushing yards or passing yards?
I think it should count as negative offensive yards because when you think about it, the QB is sacked before he decides what he is actually going to do. It seems strange to dock the running game yardage or the passing game yardage when neither were really the clear goal since we don't know what the QB was going to do. I think sack yardage should simply be deducted from total offensive yardage, that way both passing and running suffer penalty equally.
