    I think the argument that it may change kickoff strategies is legit. But the actual 5 yards over an 80 yard (or 75 yard) drive isn't going to be all that significant.
    They were saying there is a 5% increased chance of scoring from starting on the 25 as opposed to the 20. That is a pretty good increase for teams that score a lot. Hopefully McManus can angle kick to the goal line and force them to return the ball.

    The touchback at th 25 could just increase returns in my opinion. Teams will try and kick high kicks to land within the 5 and go for the pin back. Just a thought.

    This is going to backfire. A lot of teams are going to instruct their kickers to kick-off high and a yard or two into the endzone. If anything more players are going to bring it out.

    The only thing saving the kickoff from Uncle Roger at this point is the onside kick and the fact that they can milk another commercial spot when teams change possessions after a kickoff.

    The extra point thing is a ploy to draw attention away from the unpopular 14 team playoff money grab.
    No way they take away the extra point. Too much opportunity for commercial breaks before and after the stupid play.

    NFL looking at possibility of playoff games on Friday and Monday
    • NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said earlier this month that expanding the playoffs from 12 to 14 teams is something that the league has 'under serious consideration.'
    • When asked by NFL Network host Rich Eisen if the expansion format would mean 14 teams in the playoffs, instead of 12, Goodell said 'That's correct.'
    • Six games on Wild-Card Weekend could mean Friday and Monday playoff games, according to Goodell.
    • Goodell also said on Monday that the NFL is exploring the possibility of eliminating extra points.

    Are you so naive that you truly believe if Goodell was gone that anything would change? That the owners wouldn't just replace him with another bot to do their bidding? You're buying into their plan, which is make him the focal point of the negative things the league has to do - it redirects from the owners.

    Keep up the hysterics, Footsteps. It's who you are!
    To bad for you I never said Goodell was personally responsible for rule changes, though I notice plenty of your boyfriends on this thread did just that, including some of the same little clowns busting my chops for it on the other thread. To bad for you I linked on the other thread to a specific post months ago where I specifically noted the Competition Committee was responsible for rule changes.

    Didn't they teach reading at Mormon school?

    Prepare for Foosteps to vomit all over you.

    Because the Pats introduced the longer PAT and it burned them. Now suddenly the NFL wants to pull PAT's all together.

    I watched NFL Insiders today and they said now that the NFL has moved the spot of the ball to the 25 on touchbacks teams will try to kick the ball high and short to get hang time and kick it around the 10 in order to allow gunners to get down and blow the returner up before he can setup a return.

    Unintended consequences.
