  • Unfair to avoid Devin Hester?

    I'd like to see the NFL consider legislation that would penalize teams for punting out of bounds. And maybe the league should tack on another 10 yards to the penalty for kicking off out of bounds. It isn't good for the league to have dynamic players like Devin Hester taken out of the game.
    First of all, as bad as things have been in Detroit, I truly cannot remember anyone crying for a change in the rules when opposing defenses would put 11 men, four billy goats and a small family of water buffalo in the box in order to stop Barry Sanders. Secondly, the Bears have every opportunity to make teams pay for giving them better field position. Mr. Pompei, let me introduce you to the word "offense."
    This has got to be a joke. If a change were to be made, they'd also have to prevent 8 players from crowding the box and for a team's #1 receiver from being covered by more than 1 player.

    Oh, and Elam isn't allowed to kick within 2 minutes of the half/game.

    A joke. This is football... if you can't win without your KR/PR, you don't deserve to win.

      Let's make it a rule that you have to throw at Champ Bailey every time you pass. That way, the game would be fair.

      This is completely ridiculous. It's not like the Bears aren't getting great field position out of this or anything. If the Bears offense didn't suck like it does, teams wouldn't do this as often.

          That is extremely lame. You devise ways to eliminate the opposing teams best players, and that usually leaves you vulnerable in other areas. If the team you're playing can't figure out ways to exploit this then they don't deserve to win. Kicking away from Hester is smart strategy, just like double teaming Steve Smith or avoiding Champ Bailey is.

            Well, it isn't good for the league to have dynamic players taken out of the game. It isn't good for the league for teams to play defense, either. They obviously aren't gonna change it. The field position teams get on an out of bounds kickoff is top notch, they need to take advantage.

              you have a choice, you can kick it to Hester or kick it short and put the Bears in good position.

                    Yeah, this is really a pathetic argument.

                    As Marinelli put it before this weeks game, "I would rather kick the ball into Lake Michigan than to kick it to Hester."

                      People always talk about "fair" in football.

                      If you show up to a game and its going to be a "fair" match up, you're not prepared.

                        Boo freaking Hoo!

                        Is it "fair" to avoid shut down corners?

                        Its called a competitive advantage, if you don't want Hester lighting you up then you better tackle him or not kick to him.

                          So let's get this straight...

                          You have to kick to returners
                          You're not allowed to score X amount of points so so and so team doesn't get offended.
                          What else?

                          Shut up already. It's the NFL. It's strategy. It's a coach's decision to do whatever he feels helps him win. Enough already, stop complaining about something new every week.

                              It is much easier to direct a kick out of bounds on a kickoff than on a punt. On a punt you would lose yardage majority of the time by trying to kick out of bounds, but on a kickoff you could easily get it below the 15 yard line.
