I don't really care about Football, but this looks fun.

Don't really care about sports, at all. Played a little Madden, found it kind of boring. This seems really fun though.

Is it worth dropping the $10-15 dollars on it (whatever it costs) if I really don't know anything about football?

These type of games become very boring unless you're playing with friends or online. Jeff mentioned many times liking an older version better. I believe he even owns an arcade cabinet. 
 
From what I've watched, haven played, it seems to have some very fundamental skills that can be learned, but I noticed people having control problems. You know, meant to do this and did that.

I'd say yes. It's so far removed from football that you don't need to know anything other than pass to the guy who's open when you're on offense and hit the guy before the ball gets to him on defense. Pro tip if you get the game: Use icon passing (in the options menu). Directional passing is true to the series but makes it a lot more difficult.

I enjoy watching football. Football games have gotten to advanced for me. I don't want to know a hundred controls for both sides of the game. I might give this a shot. It looks like it could be fun and not a simulator like Madden has become.

I'm in the same boat as you, but have very fond memories of Blitz. I have not played NFL Blitz: The League, but when I heard that NFL Blitz was getting a remake of its old style, I couldn't wait for it. This is the perfect football game for a gamer who does not follow football that much, but wants a really cool competitive game for either playing friends online or completing challenges.
