Kasay still can't get it into the endzone each time even with five extra yards.

ok, but w/ the wind at his back he can cross the plane of the endzone.....I am certain of it.

Maybe we can get the entire crowd to bunch in to one end zone and blow as hard as they can and wave paper fans toward his back. That's good for at least 1 knot.

idk why people are so angry about this. yes kickoffs are an exciting part of the game, but lets be honest, as panthers fans, it is never exciting for us. Its sad when our most exciting special teams moment is Baker making an ankle slapping tackle to save a touchdown. do we have a person who can kickoff and kick field goals at the same time? no do we have someone who scares people on returns? no. even if they reverse the rule in a few years, it will give kasey enough time to retire and we can have a kicker that can do both.

ps. I think people are forgetting that Baker has done kickoffs before and he would probably be doing it if we didnt have lloyd.

One other rule change (per Florio). The league established that green is the official color of all NFL football fields.

No Boise State type blue fields, and no painting the field some other color for marketing purposes.

might not always be touchbacks..if you have a strong kicker you can kick a really high kick to the 1 or the 2 yard line so your kickoff team can get there and pin them back even further..adds more options for the kickoff teams but severely limits return teams.

If they can think of a way for teams to still perform onside kicks, I bet they'll ban the kickoff completely within 5 years because of "safety concerns". After the other team scores, you'll get it on your own 25 and be done with it.

Marvin Lewis had hinted that there was talk of doing away with kickoff returns entirely.

I'd like to hope the NFL isn't that stupid, but some evidence points to the contrary :(

So because kickoffs aren't super exciting for us we shouldn't hate the rule? I'm pretty sure most here watch more than just Panther's games. So taking away exciting plays from other teams still effects us as fans. Not to mention Goodson had a return that was exciting until the flag was thrown.

I agree. They will say it's for safety but getting rid of kick returns makes the offense and defense play more plays. Doesn't that increase their risk of injury?
