As a devoted fan of the NFL and owner of the Green Bay Packers 🙂 , I wanted to mention a possible rule change and help eliminate kick-offs from our great game.
After a team scores a touchdown, they would continue to have the option of kicking or running the ball over the goal line for one or two points. The change that would make the game safer would occur on the ensuing kick where the team that scored would kick from their own 40. If the ball should travel through the uprights that team would be awarded one additional point and team B would put the ball in play from the 20 yard line. If the attempt is no good, team B would get the ball 1st and 10 at their own 35 yard line.
This change would eliminate the kick-off and still make kickers a very big part of the game.
What do you think?
