Field Goal Stats 30-39 yards

I think it would make the game better...just my opinion.

re: NFL Rule Change...What would you do?


the kickers should have as little an impact as possible

I don't want some 150 pound jackass that sits on the sideline the entire game to be making millions upon millions of dollars because you put such an importance on the weakest position in football

make field goals only worth 1 point and you can only elect to kick them twice during a game.

There are some great ideas in here, if you hate the game of football and would like to frick it up.

But football is also supposed to be a game of skill. I fail to see how this would cheapen the game.

If you don't care about skill and you just care about people being bigger and stronger and running each other the frick over why not just make the forward pass illegal also? Take all of the ball skill out of the game and must make it a death match.

Make pass interference a 15 yard penalty instead of a spot foul. If it's obvious that the defender tripped, pushed, whatever the receiver to prevent a catch, an additional 15 yard personal foul penalty could be tacked on by the referee.

This. I hate the spot foul rule.

2 points for putting the kickoff through the uprights.

One of the greatest plays in the history of football, ruined by an extra point.

Single platoon, ironman football, the way it was meant to be played.

How the hell did you jump to this?

I just want the positions that play 90 percent of the game to be the ones to decide the game

I'd like to see an experiment, in preseason, that FGs are worth one point for every ten yards.

Goal line to 10 yd. line - 1 point

10-20 yd line - 2 points, etc.

I would like to see just how much this might change third and fourth down strategy.

NFL Extra Point Stats 27 of 32 teams were 100% on extra points in 2012.
The best way to make this better is to make the goal posts narrower. This makes extra points more difficult (good) and increases 4-down territory (also good).

Kickers already decide games. Punters have an influence as well although it's less obvious.

What's wrong with everyone on the roster having an effect on the outcome of the game?

Also extend the posts as there are too many issues when the kicks go too high over he posts.
