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.

truth is most nfl games already suck unless you're a fan of one of the team's playing...

and there aren't enough good QBs to take advantage of the pro-offense rules...

tackling is for shit with the exception of a couple of defenses....the NFL has already peaked in terms of being a compelling event

pretty much the only thing they can do from here on out is screw it up more in the name of safety...

Yeah maybe I didn't think that all the way through. Still IMO it would suck. And if the game is tied late in the 4th qtr it's going to be harder for either team to win the game if they have to score a TD instead of kicking a FG and that could lead to a tie game. And don't forget about TV and time constraints.

That's just dumb. I can't believe these ****ers make all that money to come up with the most ridiculous shit ever.

If you want to get rid of kickoffs, just give the other team the ball on their twenty after a score.

Problem solved, now where is my ten million?

Too bad. It's clutch time in the 4th, it's supposed to be difficult.

Not to mention, it's not like the kicker is guaranteed to make a clutch field goal anyway (I know this full well), so....

They can't address totally subjective and game changing calls like Pass Interference with instant replay.

BUT BY GOD THEY CAN CHANGE KICKOFFS EVERY YEAR.

No, Scott Mitchell had some talent. The dude ran a badass pass-first offense for a few years.

He was just an injury prone choker.

Matt Cassel RAPED the Hunt family because the league changed the passing rules.

I would take the replacement refs back in a second over the likes of Hochuli and Leavy.

The replacement refs had a few blown calls. The regular refs are responsible for travesties such as Super Bowl XL and the Tuck Rule Game. 'Nuff said.

So with field goals it's still difficult.

Next up, Goodell makes field goals worth 10 points, and touchdowns 25.

Teams are not unique enough. Just a rotating band of mercenaries who don't actually care where they play or the organization they represent.

The constant focus on the individual and fantasy football has made the league shit.

Crennel thought he could beat Denver with Fg's... Take them away and he still wouldnt know what happened.

Could you imagine Marty and Herm without FG's... They would never score...
