They are fixing something that really doesn't need to be fixed.

What about making the goalposts narrower. Instead of 18' 6", change it to 17'. that way it would make coaches go for it on 4th down more and force teams to drive deeper down the field before settling for a FG. Also it makes a very accurate kicker even more important.



now that is a good idea.

Nothing in the NFL is a gimmick. Anything can happen at any point of the game/season. A missed XP can mean a team doesnt make the playoffs/superbowl. Nothing wrong with the current system....Leave it alone.

I think you guys are kind of missing the point.
I'm not advocating these changes, I'm saying that drastic changes are becoming inevitable-and how do you feel the best way to go about them would be..

I understand your point. Im just saying I feel the best way to go about them would be to leave them alone. That surely is one of the options. Leaving things in the current state HAS to be one of the options in any business decision. You look at the pros/cons of every option available. I really hope I dont need to write up a white paper on this...lol

wouldn't mind moving the ball to the 10 or 15 yard line won't be as easy as the 2 yard line. Bringing a little more drama to the game :cool:

Make the kickers wear a blindfold during XPs. Adds a whole other element. Or, have a lion attack the kicker mid-kick. Composure, baby. Composure.

Anyone have the picture of that block, with the one guy in a Panthers jersey in the crowd cheering? I can't find it.

I like the idea of making it a longer kick, it is a bit of a gimme now.

I think you have to keep the kick and the 2 point conversion, but I like the idea of making the kick a bit more challenging.

Better question.

Should Bill Belichick be told to keep his trap shut?
