MUCH too logical. It would be efficient AND effective to do it the way you suggest and that is at least part of the reason that the NFL will likely implement it in some other way...

Perhaps you may be old enough to recall when the kickoffs were from the 40 yardline. I am old enough to remember that - - but at my age memory is just one of the things that begins to fade...

I can't remember when they moved it to the 35 from the 40, might have been before my time.

I kind of like the game of giving the coach the chance to challenge the play but I would like it to be reviewed in the booth like college.

Re: Automatic Replays for All Scoring Plays

the touchback is still going to the 20 thats the only thing that matters, they were talking about moving it to the 25 i think. it's a good move if the nfl is serious about player health, they were also talking about getting rid of the two man wedge as well, not sure where they stand on that right now.

one rule that i think should be changed for kick offs is the god awful out-of-bounds rule. if the ball does not land in-bounds then yeah sure give them the ball on the 35. but if a kick lands in-bounds at the 5 and then bounces out at the 2, i say the ball should be placed at the 2, not the 35. if the kicker is good enough to place it there then why punish them for a great kick?

There's still going to be 2 man wedges.

Then you'll definitely never have a kick-off return.

College allows a coach to challenge if the review booth doesnt. College is years ahead of the NFL when it comes to replay. The whole practice is just faster and more well done.

why not? guys can't catch the ball next to the sidelines? they do it for punt returns.

i'm not saying eliminate the rule, if the ball lands out-of-bounds then ball at 35. but if a kicker can "coffin-corner"(i think thats the madden term, been a while) someone on a kickoff why not let him try? if he f's up the ball is goin to the 35, i justr don't see penalizing the kicker for what i consider a pretty impressive kick

Re: Automatic Replays for All Scoring Plays

Might as well just eliminate returns if you can kick it out of bounds. It wouldn't be that hard to do with kickers these days.

Re: Automatic Replays for All Scoring Plays

i'm not saying you can just kick it out, the ball has to land in-bounds which would give a returner a chance to catch it, and i think you are seriously under estimating how hard of a kick that is

Re: Automatic Replays for All Scoring Plays

Honestly I haven't given it much thought, because in reality the chance of it becoming an actual rule is slim to none.

I dunno...I've seen it happen quite a few times, I don't think it would be as challenging as what you're thinking. I doubt we'd see a rule like that any time soon.
