Why? The way kicking is now, you're taking away some of the drama and entertainment of the game. XP's are no longer automatic. 

I agree with kickoffs. Minimal entertainment there.

I was just half joking on the XP thing, It's fine, I just prefer to have games decided by good offense and defense than if a kicker makes an extra point.  I've always found it weird that the offense does the work needed to score a TD and then you have to do one more thing to get the total amount of points.  You just threw a 80 yard bomb that a WR jumped over a CB to catch and run into the end zone, now do one more thing.

I want Tom Brady or JJ Watt making the play that wins the game, not a 39 kicker missing an XP.

There is enough drama with field goals.

That's what makes it interesting. Teams can spend all the money in the world on stars and big names but the little unknown kicker can make or break it.

It comes down to the team not just the stars. Just like what happened to the Bears last year. It sucks as a Bears fan but people will never forget the "double doink."

I'm fine with 3 point field goals.  They break up periods of time without TD's and make sure there isn't a ton of games going into overtime.

I just find XP kinda pointless.  You did the work by scoring a TD, that should be it. 

Kick offs are the thing that I really wish they would get rid of.   Waste of time and dangerous to players.

I would like kickoffs to be the most dangerous 20 seconds in sports.  Whatever it takes.  That shit could be electric.

You mean like they can still wear pads, but no helmets dangerous or like they get to keep the helmets, but everyone now has medieval weapons dangerous?

Lol I dunno but I like where you’re going!  Those are all reasonable ideas that belong on the table of discussion.  😂

Im just saying there is probably a way to make the kickoff the most exciting part of the game.  

8 vs 2?  You get one blocker and maybe the defenders are each limited to a 10 yard vertical zone?

This would actually be interesting.

If they are going to do preseason,  they might as well do some cool stuff like this.  See what sticks.

The entire franchise looks different if Jay doesn't break his thumb late in that San Diego team. That offense and team were just rolling.  Like rolling.  

Fucking Johnny Knox getting beat on a slant and letting Cutler take the blame for the turnover AGAIN putting Cutler in a position he never should've been in

I cannot remember the last time I saw a team in the NFL being as aggressive in trades to improve their roster as Houston is being right now. Free Agency sure, but trading away all their draft picks to fill positions around their star QB?

2 firsts and a second for a good LT and an ok WR. That’s insane.

That’s a lot of money for a guard, I could see it for a tackle.

That’s the way it’s been going last three years. Only 9th highest AAV for guard

Plus Whitehair can play center very well. The guy is a straight up tank and he was a very good pick by Pace

The return for Clowney is gag inducing

Heh. Pace picked up Khalil Mack for less than that.

This Trey Burton stuff keeps getting weirder and weirder

No kidding. Weird considering Anthony Miller had the more serious surgery and he's out there practicing. Gotta be something else wrong with him to likely miss the season opener.

Yeah and this isn't the John Fox regime, they are usually pretty forthcoming about these things

?  I wouldn't say shoulder surgery is more serious than hernia surgery.
