Trying to fix something that is not broken if you ask me. If the players don't want to get injured, stop launching yourself with your head down. You telling me guys can't launch with their heads up? That will be their problem.

If Goodell wants to change a rule, make it where you can dress all 53 guys on game day. Or will that cost the league too many dimes?

launch with their heads up?

yikes.

and it is broken in that it causes more injuries than at any other point in the game. trying to find a way to cut down on concussions.

how will that achieve the goal of cutting down on injuries and concussions?

I just don't like seeing my starters play special teams. That would be sufficient for me.

you don't think the game would be more interesting with teams switching from kickoffs to 4th and 15 type situations?

i think it's an upgrade. kickoffs are kind of boring except at maybe the beginning of the game and the 2nd half. rarely were the returns interesting even before the move up to the 35.

more options available and teams would probably be more creative.

won't cut down on injuries, though.

fwiw, i do think the rosters should be expanded to the full 53. not sure what the reasoning is in not allowing all 53 to be active.
