NFL Rule Change...What would you do?



If you could change a rule or two to make the game better, what would you recommend?

My rule change would be to push back the extra point to a 40 yard attempt and the 2 point conversion from the 5 yard line.

The other change I would do would to widen the field by 5 yards...2.5 on each side.

What's your idea?

I'd like to see them make it so if you score a defensive touchdown, the other team kicks it off to you. That would make defensive touchdowns even more exciting.

Right now you have to give the ball right back and put your defense on the field again.

So you now want most games decided by a kicker on extra points?

Bring back bump and run coverage.

When the current system was installed you did not have a kicker position...you had linebackers kicking extra points.

I think the extra point should be more challenging than a 20 yard chip shot. It's not like extra points are even worth watching under the current system.

I wish they would stop changing rules every single year just to change them

That's a good thing. I don't want my tying TD score to not matter b/c my kicker sucks and can't hit a 40 yarder.

No way kickers should ever become so prominent in the game.

Every TD - they have to kick a 40 yarder to get that Xtra point?

Insane...

So if your kicker sucks...you're now down potentially 4 points after 4 Tds...

NFL Extra Point Stats

27 of 32 teams were 100% on extra points in 2012.

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.

Good. They all make it.

Like I said, I don't want them taking a prominent role in the game - I'd just as soon get rid of the Xtra point.

The TD is the thing - not making kickers more prominent by them deciding games on long-ass Xtra points.
