Why even have Kickoffs?
Seriously....FIVE Touchbacks in the Packers/Saints game and its not even halfway through the 2nd period yet. In a Stadium that had a whopping 2 TBs all of last year.
This new kickoff rule is ridiculous. Theres no point to kickoffs anymore, its just as bad as we all feared.
And this isn't even wind. With wind they would be easily flying out of the back of the endzone.
Start the games like the XFL did.
They had Goodell on the pre-game and they talked about that. He basically said they're not done with the kick-off, that the competition committee will take another look at it during the next off-season and will probably make adjustments.
Which made me think "Why did they mess with it anyway?"
Did some teams have an 'unfair' advantage on kick-offs? (wink, wink).
Don't start me on a CT.
Yeah, CT's aside, ok they claim they did it to reduce injuries on kickoffs. Fine. but did they have to make kickoffs COMPLETELY useless in the process? Couldnt they have changed where people lined up, not where the ball was spotted?
