Look at Jim Kelly, he doesn't have a ring by in large because of a kicker. Look at Tom Brady, he has several rings that other players have only because his kicker was better than theirs. It would be like having a sick ass lawyer work an entire case and then letting an office intern deliver closing statements. **** that shit, man.


    If we get rid of kickers and special teams then that gets rid of alot of other hopeful players that want to become a starter one day. Just like David Bruton or Terrell Davis, both made their marks playing special teams in the NFL. It just gives guys a shot at making it.

    So do you want to see field goals, the kickoff or punts eliminated all together? Or just tweaked somehow. I know kickoffs are the most dangerous play but it's also the most exciting, for me at least.

    If those guys wanted to be starters they should have been better in a more obvious and direct measure. I hate underdog stories in regards to sports.



    Field Goals have to stay. The kickoff can go. Punts have to say.

    Yet my underdog Reds and Bengals consistently let me down.

    Since we're on the topic of underdogs, how do you like AJ McCarron? He seemed pretty solid with the exception of the botched snap vs Denver.

    He will be a serviceable backup but might have potential to do a little bit more; if he comes into his own as a starter he could be a very fine game manager with a bit of playmaking potential.

    If they're that worried about player safety they may as well get rid of offensive and defensive lines too. Those are the guys who take a real beating.

    I'm sorry, but this is a huge hot take argument. You can take away elements of special teams that don't really fundamentally change the game. Yeah taking away kickoffs would change the game a little, but it would still be 98% the same. Taking away the lines is something that would fundamentally change the game. Obviously you can never make the game 100% safe, but if you can only change 2% of the game yet greatly improve the safety of it, then that's an easy decision.

    Default NFL Competition Committee Move Touchback to 25 Yard Line

    http://www.chicagotribune.com/sports...321-story.html

    There has been more buzz about the NFL competition committee's recommendation to make two unsportsmanlike-conduct penalties by the same player in the same game an automatic ejection, but the reality is that situation is rarely going to arise.

    However, the committee's proposal to move touchbacks to the 25-yard line from the 20 will have a far greater impact on the game if the rule change is passed when it's voted on Wednesday morning at the NFL's annual meetings...

    Moving a touchback up to the 25 hard line seems like a fair thing to do.
