Great article by Jason Lisk over at The Big Lead. He went back with a Lexis search to show that people have been complaining about the NFL watering down its product since before the start of free agency. This is a general rule of sportswriting: the golden age was always 10 or 15 years ago.

Yes, believe it or not, there were NFL games in the 90s with lots of penalties and turnovers and sometimes bad offensive line play. And sometimes in the 80s, and 70s, and 60s.
