Make TDs worth 11pts, and extra points worth -3.

Make 2 point conversions with 4 points, but keep the name '2 point conversion'

Move up kickoffs to the 50, but don't allow the use of a tee.

Make kick returners tie their shoes together.

justabitdisturbed: I like the idea of having a rotating goal post during extra points.  Maybe it could even be controlled by the opposing team's defensive coordinator.


Just throw a windmill in front of it like mini-golf.

Milk D: Alex Karras (yes, Mongo from Blazing Saddles and the dad from Webster) - once said, "no football game should be won by a 110 pound immigrant."

Always makes me laugh.


Kickers only pawn in game of football.

The person kicking the point after must either
A) Have a blood alcohol level greater than .3
B) Kick in high heeled shoes while wearing lingerie.

I'm hoping some ladies will finally find their way onto some NFL squads.  Odds are we'd get kickers in drag, but its worth a shot.

MugzyBrown: Ya know, I don't know why they don't trade Chris Johnson for Luck.  The Colts need a running game.


Because they need a running game, not a stumble for 3 yards and fall down game.

I like rule change threads.  It's like sports talk radio and everybody coming up with the trades the GM should do.

dragonchild: It strikes me as an incredibly stupid way to bring unpredictability back into the game -- remove specialization from a game that is dominated by specialists.  Oh, it'll be hilarious the first few weeks when some TE clunks a PAT, but come time when the games start to matter, everyone will detest the idea -- especially when every team will still have a placekicker.  It'll change the game, but not in any way that people want to see when it's their team trying to win games.


Think of this... down by 6 late, 3rd and goal from the 1.  You sub in your KICKER at halfback!

But if the NFL got rid of extra points, then we would only have one commercial break after every touchdown, instead of two. And that hurts revenue.


I'm sure Goodell is drafting a sternly worded letter to Belichick as we speak.

Hes just mad since he got caught cheeting trying to block a field goal earlier this year.


Once a cheat always a cheat.

They shouldn't allow receivers to wear those sticky gloves, but QBs should be forced to wear them.

Arkanaut: Right, because Adam Vinatieri didn't save Belichick's ass a dozen times.



Are you one of those people who tries to shame billionaires who call for meaningful economic reform too?

I agree, kickers are stupid. You know what else is? Quarterbacks. farking fancy little prima donnas throwing the ball with laser speed and accuracy. Football should be like it was in the 70s, when some lunkhead like Terry Bradshaw would launch a duck, and there was no telling where it would come down or if George Atkinson had left anyone alive to catch it when it did finally land.

I have to say I'm amused by the idea of the scoring player kicking the extra point.
