Should coaches be allowed to challenge penalties?

With all of the extra flags being thrown nowadays for roughing the passer and helmet to helmet hits, should the red challenge flag also be able to be used for penalties?

The refs have been instructed to err on the side of caution, and thats fine, but frequently it's resulted in some some pretty poor judgement calls that are made in real time. These calls could be corrected if the ref had the chance to review it in slow mo.

So, leaving the challenge rules as they are now, and just adding in penalties as a challengeable item, would it be a good idea?

I really have yet to see the problem with this one and think they took the guess work out of it.
You control the ball all the way through hitting the ground and every inch of movement caused by your momentum.

By those rules, I have yet to see one gotten wrong.

I'm sure there are some I haven't seen, but the one against us a few weeks ago was not a catch.

And yes I am all for challenging flags, but not no calls.

They got a catch/no catch call wrong in the Seattle/Tampa game just last week.

They should have both.

refs on the ground and super ref(s) in the camera room

in fact, i imagine they can make software to identify certain penalties for automatic review.
