Automatic Replays for All Scoring Plays

have been approved by the owners:

Owners embrace replay for all scoring plays | ProFootballTalk

sounds good to me, pretty much what we have with college football and a step in the right direction imo.

Re: Automatic Replays for All Scoring Plays

I like the idea but I wonder if it will noticeably slow down the game?
No more rushing to kick the extra point?
Is the kicking team going to be waiting on the field before final approval?

Re: Automatic Replays for All Scoring Plays

I just wish they would fully adopt the college replay system. This is a nice step though.

Re: Automatic Replays for All Scoring Plays

Here is my question, can we just have an additional ref look at it(who is not on the field). That way the main ref doesn't need to run under the hood, have eggs thrown at him, etc. He just waits after the touchdown for another office who is sitting in a cozy room aware from everything to make the final verdict. It is radioed down to the field ref and the call is confirmed or denied.

Re: Automatic Replays for All Scoring Plays

^ im pretty sure thats a change being consider or maybe already made for next season. There will be an official non-field review guy(s) like college.

Re: Automatic Replays for All Scoring Plays

You would hope this is done off the field and would be pretty much done behind the scene unless its a close call and needs further review. I would think teams will not need to waist a chalange if they don't think the other teams scored.

Re: Automatic Replays for All Scoring Plays

I'm betting it will be down pretty quickly upstairs and won't be a big deal unless the play is questionable. Good move by the league.

Re: Automatic Replays for All Scoring Plays

Looks like the kickoff changes were also approved.

Re: Automatic Replays for All Scoring Plays

Kickoffs will be moved to 35-yard line | ProFootballTalk

Touchbacks will continue to be returned to the 20-yard line.

agreed.

The College rule may cause more reviewed plays per game but they do them much quicker...no dog and pony show with red flags and officials walking 100 yards to tuck their head in a booth and then another 100 yards back out to the field.

Re: Automatic Replays for All Scoring Plays

The NFL had the 35-yard line kick-off rule before. Not sure why this is such a big deal.

There will be more TB's but returns aren't going to be eliminated.

Re: Automatic Replays for All Scoring Plays

Brian Mitchell made his living returning kickoffs from the 35-yard line his first few years of his career. It really isn't a big deal. I'd rather see a touchback than a nice kick off return being called back for a phantom illegal block in the back call each and every time.
