    I'd like to see an NFL team employ a strategy where they never punted if they were on 40 and 4th down was no more than 5 yards. Once at 50 never punt unless 4th was over 10 yards.

    Also always go for 2.

    Don't think the onside kick thing would work but it would be interesting if a team committed to 1 onside kick per game at a random time in the game. Would have more success early in the season, but then late in the season it may result in better field position (for the D) since teams would constantly be scared of the random onside kick.

    This is exactly how I play madden. Though I'm not sure how it would work. I'm all for always going for it if you're on the 50 or closer and its 4th and 3 or less.

    I remember a couple year ago some guys on the radio speculating about something like this. Saying that a team that is terrible should give it a try as they have nothing really to lose.

    All depends on the situation. I bet those High School teams lose when they are going for it on 4th and 15 cause they got a holding penalty or a Sack. And you would need to be awesome at getting onside kicks. No way a team would ONLY onside kick in NFL. Just TOOOOO hard to rely on getting the ball back.

    I had a perfect onside kick record when I played.

    Sounds like the typical online game on madden. Pass. even though defense is bad enough in this years game, I still wouldn't give the opposing team any kind of chance...

    I think it takes guts to just concede and punt the ball back, in online modes anyways....

    This would be fun to watch, but I can't imagine the scores. Leave those kind of scores to basketball.
