Goodell considering doing away with kickoffs

http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap100...ating-kickoffs

When the NFL changed the line of scrimmage for kickoffs to increase touchbacks, New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick derisively said that it was only a matter of time before the NFL eliminated kickoffs entirely. He believed that's what the NFL wanted to do.

Belichick might wind up being proven right.

Roger Goodell through the years
Take a look at photos of Roger Goodell through the years.
NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said that he's taken it under consideration to remove the kickoff entirely.

"It's an off-the-wall idea. It's different and makes you think differently. It did me," Goodell told TIME in a cover story for the Dec. 17 issue.

Even more intriguing is an alternative concept promoted by Tampa Bay Buccaneers coach Greg Schiano. Goodell met with the NFL competition committee chairman about the concept.

"After a touchdown or field goal, instead of kicking off, a team would get the ball on its own 30-yard line, where it's fourth and 15," TIME's Sean Gregory writes. "The options are either to go for it and try to retain possession or punt. If you go for it and fall short, of course, the opposing team would take over with good field position. In essence, a punt replaces the kickoffs."

It's an interesting idea. We haven't seen the numbers that punts are that much safer than kickoffs, but the NFL must have the data to support the notion if they were considering it.

The implications for strategy are even more intriguing. If a team is trailing by more than one score very late in the fourth quarter, they likely would to try to go for it on fourth-and-15 instead of punting. That's not an easy situation to convert, but the concept would still make it easier to make a comeback without ever giving the ball back to an opponent.

They keep it and they'll ruin the game. So they flip a coin adn then place the ball at the 20 instead of starting the game with a KO? That sounds exciting!

I don't like seeing Shane Drone returning kicks either, but this is ridiculous.

Do away with field goals and there will end up being a bunch of tie games. They need to quit messing with it.

Roger being retarded as usual. If anything, I'd like to see punts and field goals eliminated.

Coaches should be forced to grow some balls instead of wetting themselves and punting on 4th and inches because it's the "conservative" thing to do.

How can there be a bunch of tie games? You have to go for 2 each time and not kick extra points.

Then change the over time rules to College...

NFL would be crazy!!!

Actually, studies show that teams are statistically better off going for it on 4th down from damn near anywhere on the field, so I don't really see how eliminating field goals would lead to a bunch of tie games.
