This.

I'll watch the highlights but since I don't have HBO I have no interest in finding a method to watch full episodes.

I hate the changes.

The XFL had an interesting concept with the scramble to start games.
I doubt they would try to copy anything from the XFL but it's the only thing I liked about the league.

Looks like that determined who kicked off, but the NFL should at least try to replace the kickoff with something. I fear they will just get to the point of starting each possession at the 25.

And the new suggested rules are ALL terrible.

The tough luck cut...the surprise guy who makes the team...the bad injury...coach yelling at a rookie...rookie transition to league...the rookie hazing...what other storylines am I missing?

Does McC still work for the browns? Maybe tried to feed him alcohol and roll camera?

What don't you like in the new proposals?

I might be missing something there but I think it's a pretty smart way to keep the kickoff in the game (as a real play, not a video game stuff) while reducing the high speed collisions.

Really don't see what people are hating on here...

Re: Around the NFL Post Draft News.

I was listening to Pat Kirwan walk through the changes and he shredded them. I doubt I can do his explanations justice.

The first thing I don't like is that the ball is dead in the end zone. The kickoff being a live ball even in the endzone adds a good drama to catching the ball falling short of the goal line or just into the end zone.

2nd, the kickoff team gets to start running at the kick off, the receiving team can't block until the ball is touched or touches the ground, that means the receiving team who should be lining up blocks will be running backwards full speed and have to be aware of where the ball is and if it's been caught while the kicking team is setting to blow the blockers off their feet.

Most special teams players run a 40 in under five seconds, kick off hang times are about 4-5 seconds. That means that the kicking team players will cover about 40 yards (or to the 25 yard line) before a receiving team player can legally block them. How is that going to even work?

Finally the 5 on each side rule basically will negate onside attempts which again are one of the fun elements of the kickoff.

I have no idea where this "no blocking before the ball is touched" rule comes from... this is absolutely not what the new rule is.
PFT summed it up pretty well.

-No blocking from the restraining line to 15 yards from that (so from the kicking team's 45 to the receiving team's 40, where 8 of the 11 receiving team's players must line up) before the ball is touched. IMO the point is to reduce high speed blocks.

-I don't see what's wrong with suppressing the 5 yards running start for the kick off team... doesn't change much, just reduces speed a bit.

-No wedge is smart.

-I'm pretty sure I read the rules for onside kicks would remain unchanged.

Re: Around the NFL Post Draft News.

If the NFL gets rid of Kickoffs/Punts, it will cripple the game. I'm sorry this is NOT 2nd grade football, these grown ass men signed up to play and get PAID BIG MONEY for playing a game. Let's not act like they don't know the risk they are taking. Seriously they are going down a path that could end up like baseball, nobody thought the MLB would ever be 2nd or 3rd fiddle and now it is.

Re: Around the NFL Post Draft News.

I donít see anything wrong with modifying the most dangerous play in the game.

I'm with you, the changes aren't that dramatic and seem like a legit attempt at KEEPING the kickoff in the game...

I really don't get the logic behind hating getting rid of the wedge and adding a 15 yards no block zone... but prefering arcade video games stuffs like a rugby scrum or a sprint for the ball... how is this more in the spirit of the game than a slightly less concussion inducing version of the kickoff?

Re: Around the NFL Post Draft News.

I remember thinking in high school that kickoffs were crazy, it was fun because I didnít know any better, but man nothing got the adrenaline pumping quite like charging full speed down the field and knocking someone on their tail

I'm all for safety and modifying the play but KEEP it in the game, don't take out ST's. Some guys that get into the league are through ST's, that's how many get their start.

Funny u mention that because my JR year I stopped playing due to a concussion suffered on a kickoff, I went to basketball after that lol. So yes I want safety of these guys but as I said it's a tradition, how odd would it be to watch a game and have no kickoff's or punts??
