    It would be a huge change and kind of gimmicky, but I think it is interesting.

    I think it would be pretty rare that someone went for it and punt returns and punt coverage would be hugely important, but people would be averaging better field position, so you would see a LOT more points.

    If they keep screwing around with things football will go down the same path as boxing.

    Soon head coaches are just going to play madden against each other...That's pretty real safe.

    Touchbacks went from 16% to over 43% after the rule. I actually thought it would be over 50%.

    Roger Goodell is destroying not only the NFL, but football as we know it. If the NFL does this then the NCAA and High Schools will be soon to follow.

    He needs to be stopped. Scarecrow and I will start browsing the ads section of Soldier of Fortune Magazine.

    I will probably just stop watching football if this happens. Whats the point anymore? You can't touch the QB, No more kick offs, No more hard hits... They just need to put a flag on the players and get it over with. Disgusting.

    I am seriously worried about where the NFL is headed. You have obtuse ideas like this kickoff replacement out there, people are talking seriously about getting rid of helmets to stop the head to head hits, Cut blocks are being talked about getting outlawed, etc...

    The next thing you know we won't be watching American Football, we'll be watching Rugby.

    I've heard it, that and getting rid of facemasks for the same reason.

    I've heard the facemask idea but no helmets at all? That's a scary thought.

    Either way it's all a bunch of nonsense.. what happens when a guy gets hit with no facemask and falls face first on a turf field? Yeah the amount of concussions is really going to go down :rolleyes:

    Or how about a shoulder pad to the face? Or, an arm, a fist, etc etc. Just completely retarded how pathetic this league is getting.
