Get rid of the kick PAT.

TD -6
Take it in from the 5 - 1
Take it in from the 10 - 2

So goodell tried to get rid of kickoffs, now they are toying with PAT's

will you even be able to call it football anymore when they are banning every form of kicking the ball

Re: 42-yd PAT's a possible change in NFL

NFL chose it as the best option from a list that included:

*first TD scored by both teams must be followed by a two-point try
*PKs must designate dominant foot. All EPs must be kicked with non-dominant foot, ala Rich Szaro 1978
*all EPs must be attempted blindfolded, or a team may also sign a legally blind kicker who does not count against the 53 man roster or salary cap (ADA tax incentive available)
*Team A chooses spot of ball for EP for Team B, but must add 5 yards to same spot on their ensuing EP

They will ban punts soon and say every team starts every drive from the 20 yard line

Re: 42-yd PAT's a possible change in NFL

I wouldn't mind changing the PAT somehow. I don't know if this is the way to do it but now they're so predictable that most people don't even watch.

Re: 42-yd PAT's a possible change in NFL

I have a really novel idea.
Why not leave well enough alone??
Let the game stand on its own merits.

Re: 42-yd PAT's a possible change in NFL

I think this would be a great change. Nobody ever misses PATs. They are a waste of time as it is. Everybody knows they're going to make it unless it gets blocked. Moving them back makes the game more interesting imo.
