fonebone77: UNAUTHORIZED FINGER: p the boiler: How about no kicking at all. No punts and no kick offs either. One team starts at the 20 and goes until they don't complete a 4th down or they get in the end zone. Basically back yard football.I'd be fine with this, except you can't call it "football" any more.The term "football" originated as differentiating sports from equine games. It wasnt about the ball and the foot connecting, it was about playing the game "on foot."

Sir VG: 50 yard field goals with 4 points? Denver fans scream "YES PLEASE!"See you at every single Super Bowl for the next few years at least.
chuggernaught: Shame Us: Rewarding offensive ineptitude has not usually been the NFL prerogative, but hey, it's a new age of stupidity to put points on the board, so why not? Right, Rog?Exactly. Why reward a team that cannot advance the ball any further than the 35 yard line. If you want to change things up, field goals 50+ are 1 point, 30 - 40 is 2 points, and anything else is 3 points. That way you're not rewarding a team just for having a great kicker.
Gosling: Here. There's even a graph.[www.decisionsciencenews.com image 480x360]Pick out about the amount of the time you'd like to see a PAT miss. Anything closer than the 10, it's a total gimme unless the snap is bad. Accuracy starts to become a factor around the 10, 15 yard line.
FreakinB: Why reward teams for not advancing far enough to give themselves an easier field goal?
