Lets just get rid of kick-offs altogether and automatically start the receiving team at the 20 every time. This new stupid rule of kick-offs at the 35 has pretty much killed the special teams aspect of the game. Ok , perhaps not that drastic as special teams are still needed on punts, but tonight's game really annoyed me when watching the kick-offs. In case you weren't keeping track, tonight out of 10 kick-offs, 8 were touchbacks, and one was a squib kick, and one an on-side kick. Unless they(the NFL) reverse course, which we all know god-I'm-great-ell will never do, the kick-off portion of football is virtually dead now. And I can't believe more isn't being made of it. Pretty much now unless a team is going for on-sides, or trying to keep it away from a good return man at the end of the game who will probably run it out no matter how deep into the endzone the ball lands, kick-offs are are now... useless. This is seriously one of the worst things Goodell has done to the game imo. He's just killed one of the bigger aspects of the game. Even though its only 5 yards, its enough to let every kicker send it out of bounds through the end-zone. We are seeing the death of the kick-off. Anyone offended by this, sorry I needed to vent. I'm just really annoyed/depressed that a big part of football has been taken away. I really liked watching returns and sometimes being surprised/shocked when a kick-off produces a great return regardless of which team did it. They're just so much fun and exciting. Guess I'll never see that again except on maybe punt returns.
