here is an excerpt from time magazines interview with goodell

TIME sat in on meeting between Goodell and Rich McKay, head of the NFL's powerful competition committee. Goodell brought up a proposal promoted by Greg Schiano, coach of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers: after a touchdown or field goal, instead of kicking off, a team would get the ball on its own 30-yard line, where it's fourth-and-15. The options are either to go for it and try to retain possession, or punt. If you go for it and fall short, the opposing team would take over with good field position. In essence, punts would replace kickoffs, and punts are less susceptible to violent collisions than kickoffs

going for it on 4th and 15 is easier then getting an onside kick..that would be a joke and a huge advantage for a team with a manning or tom brady

and you would get much better field position on a punt from the 30 then on a kick off...what would deacon jones say about cutting down on collisions

That sounds stupid, if they do it they should change the NFL to XFL.

Don't believe everything you hear.... The NFL is just putting stuff out there in hopes of mitigating their liability in all the former player lawsuits.....  IF they change kickoff rules, probably just eliminate the two man wedge totally first....
