One of the most exciting parts of a football game is a 2 point conversion.

I believe it is that simple. This isn't High school or college.
See this is the point to me. In Highschool we went for the 2 points almost everytime, because we didn't have a kicker that was automatic on PAT's. It was a dynamic part of the game in that instance. In the NFL, however, it is pointless, maybe at one time it wasn't automatic (I don't know) but it is now. That is why I support backing it up for a 35 yard attempt, despite the fact that as a Skins fan it is more than likely to bite us in the ass.

How can you even say that? There is no comparison, I mean, yeah, with the kicks turning into touchbacks is kinda boring now, but there is still a chance for returns for a TD, onside kicks, etc.

This past weekend we saw a big kick return from the Seahawks that completely changed the game.

Against the redskins we saw a lot of big kickoff returns that changed games.

What extra point play is comparable to that?

Re: Roger Goodell says NFL considering eliminating extra point

I'm not really for or against the idea. I voted "no" because I feel more like, if it's not adding anything to the game; change it. Make it more difficult.

While we're talking about extra points, I think we should make it so that the defense can score 2 points on the play, as well. Same as college. If you go for 2 and throw a pick, the defense can return it for 2 points; same goes for blocking a kick

Re: Roger Goodell says NFL considering eliminating extra point

Things that necessarily weren't broke at the time, but were changed to improve the game for safety or entertainment:

Forward passes were once illegal, touchdowns were once 4 points and FGs were 5, horse-collar tackles were legal, before '94 there were no 2 point conversions, sudden death OT came along in '74, before '70 jerseys didn't have player names on them, in '78 a 2nd wilcard team was added, in '74 the goal posts were moved back, etc., etc.

Down the road I doubt we'll ever hear anyone say, you know I really miss the PAT.

Re: Roger Goodell says NFL considering eliminating extra point

why does anyone care about the PAT? The "it's part of the game" reasoning is lazy.

I live in Saintsland and you are correct. Saints fans clearly remember and lament that PAT.

But that was 10 years ago! I see no reason to sit through a gajillion boring PAT's because ten years ago the PAT had an effect on just one game.

Not eliminate, but replace.

I'm all for it since they're basically automatic.

Re: Roger Goodell says NFL considering eliminating extra point

saw an interesting suggestion, put a narrower set of post right behind the current ones. and xp's would need to go through them. not quite sure of the logistics but it is an interesting/out of the box idea
