So basically, if a team has a very good passing game, there's the potential in this proposed rule for an opposing team to literally not even touch the ball for 99% of the game. Worst idea I've ever heard.

But, if you have a really good defense and a solid running game, you have huge potential to do the keep the ball out of their possession as well and possibly blow them out.

So basically this single rule changes the entire game of football and it becomes just a game of who can cheese their punts the most.

No surprise this idiocy was Greg Schiano's idea.

Just give it to the team at the 20 for christ sake. This sounds idiotic.

Honestly there are injuries every game, but I can't even remember the last time there was a major one on a kick return. I have no idea why they put so much focus on changing them for the sake of injury when the majority of injuries come from simple things like your own team mate rolling over your leg.

I admit, I think it does make it almost an entirely different game. Part of me thinks it is really exciting, but it's hard to imagine eliminating an entire part of the game. How would returns both past and present be tracked?

Honestly, when I read it, I thought it kind of sounded like a rule for the XFL, lol. But, I think people would grow to like it if it was implemented. Do I think it will be? I doubt it.

Kickoffs are like way more dangerous than unexpectedly crashing the victory formation.

well there's that...but even then, just provides even more reason to 1) improve your passing game and 2) score first and 3) have a defense that can cause turnovers just in case.

Only in theory. The 4th and 15 would in reality only be used when the onsides kick would have been.
