PP7 value drops if this passes. obviously.

I think it sucks. KO returns are some of the most exciting plays in the game.


Nobody is looking at to draft a Kick returner number one.
Especially one that has said he doesn't have a great desire to return KO's from the beginning.
He won't lose any value.

How long before the foot is taken out of football?

Probably not long seeing as the balls are already being removed.

I respectfully disagree. I've read and heard it talked about that the KO return ability of peterson is one of the things that makes him a game changer.

Owners have also voted to make all scoring plays subject to booth review. Coaches will no longer need to use challenges on these plays.

They have also, for the moment, set aside proposed expansions of the "defenseless receiver" rule.

(no problem for me with either of these things)

Peterson was on Total Access on NFLN last night. He said that he's been asked by teams about the return game during interviews at the combine. He prefers to do punt returns and not kick returns.

I thought this as well, but saw an interview with him last night in which he emphasized that teams spoke with him about punt returns, not kickoffs, and furthermore, that punt returns would probably only be in critical situations.

So there is likely no impact on his draft value.

I got no problem w/ the booth review....

I might have issue w/ the 2nd.....imo there were a lot of "bang-bang" football plays that shouldn't have been called as penalties last year....expanding that just means more good/clean football plays getting flagged.

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

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.
