Kickers would no longer be needed.. good thing we got rid of ours before everyone else!

This coupled with 18 game seasons and additional seeds in the playoffs smh someones on crack. As the saying goes... if its not broke don't fix it.

He hasn't proposed to remove FGs from the game yet. Kickers would still be relevant. For now.....mwah hahahaaaa ......dumb

Actually this isn't a Roger Goodell idea. IIRC Bill bellicheck and maybe jerry jones put this in motion.
Needless to say several coach and owners brought this idea to light

For one thing, you'd have whole games hinging on one minor play, early in the game: a failed 2 point conversion in the first quarter could mess things up completely for an underdog type team fighting for their lives against a better team....it could mess with all kinds of things. It'd give more opportunities for games to be decided on "controversial" plays or judgement calls from refs...that is something we do not need.

Another idea would be to move the kicked extra point back, so it's not such an easy chip shot.... Spot the ball on the 12 if you opt to kick for 1.

Place the ball on the 37 yard line, making it a 45 yard PAT.

maybe they can also do that beginning of the game 2 man scrum for the ball instead of a coin toss, which is always boring as well

Re: So did anyone hear?

I'm all for changing it somehow. I don't think the kick should be eliminated though. 20 yard field goals are a joke. I would say make them kick it 35 or 40 yards. That way more variable come in to play such as wind. Keep it a one point field goal. No need to re-invent the wheel here. Just move them back farther.

This is like scientists who use their time and brilliance on ways to create mango-blueberry chewing gum. Aren't there other areas (concussions. replay, holding, PI, attendance in Jacksonville) that the NFL experts should be addressing first?
