#2 is the best concept....take advantage of the opportunities of technology and use them to create the fairest and best product possible.

I also think it's ridiculous how small NFL rosters are....there's no reason not to have 53 men dress up on gameday.

ive heard before that the reasoning for that was back in the day, before the salary cap, roster limits were to keep rich teams from hording players.

its a concept that just never really went away....especially with the salary cap now, why not just blow the limit way up. keep starters healthy cause they wont have to play special teams and also, it gives those young DB's and WR's a place on the roster while they try and prove themselves at their real position

In an interview, Jeff Fisher once addressed the gameday roster issue. He agreed with the idea in theory, but said that he felt that instead of giving teams greater depth, it would simply lead to a higher level of specialization. Teams would use the extra roster spots to add very specific role players. For example, we'd see more kickers with great power but no accuracy being signed as kickoff specialists....or teams keeping an extra QB who would play only in short yardage situations as a run specialist.

In short, he felt that expanding the roster would further dilute the overall talent level of the players, bringing in players who are nothing more than one-trick ponies.

i can see in some ways how that would be bad, but i think i could stand it if those came as side effects of the rule.

i think it would be most utilized by keeping around guys to play only special teams. young, cheap guy at that who can do that while being groomed for their regular position.

I do think they should re-examine the replay process, and allow for certain penalties to be subject to review.

I've seen several players flagged for roughing on what appeared to be a blow to the QB's head....but review showed that the hand never touched the helmet, and that it only appeared that way from where the official was standing.

We've all seen similar phantom penalties called for other offenses, as well. I've seen game-changing holding calls or DPI calls that reviews proved were blown calls. I'd certainly like the rules to be amended to allow for these clear-cut bad calls to be overturned....particularly when the call will directly affect the outcome of a game.

i like the idea of changing OT. ive always thought college football OT was so exciting, maybe the NFL can adopt something along those lines.... give each team the ball at the 50 yard line and see who can battle it out to win. it would promote more offense, which the nfl seems to always want to do. it would be real exciting and gives both teams a fair chance to win

well not even that. i think that all it has to be is what it is now, just that both teams get to have 1 possession each.

That's the one problem with this article, it doesn't give the other side of the argument. I enjoy #3 and #4 very much.


I have mixed feelings about #1 and #2. I like the idea of being able to challenge whether or not a player would or would not have landed in bounds if he wasn't pushed, but than that brings up a lot of speculation. I wouldn't mind it as long as there were still a limitation on the number of challenges you have, because I don't want the pace of the game bogged down.

I'm sure a good argument can be made against all these changes.

I think my concern is if you go ahead and do this, where does it end.

Can you challege pass interference on an incompletion?

Holding on a pass play?

Facemask?

Illegal formation?

thats interesting. what kind of grade did you get on the paper? I once wrote an essay about how the BCS needs changed for a class last semester and got an A.

but yeah, the rookie wage scale needs some big changes. i sat here for like 15 minutes trying to type how i would do it but man....its hard to explain

I don't favor changing overtime, but the best way to do it would be to kickoff to the winner of the coin toss, and then kick it off to the other team if they score to see if they can match. Otherwise, it should be played like a normal game. The college rule of placing it on a yard line and basically letting them score is pretty stupid. It's not real football.

What about turnovers, etc? If someone picks off a pass, where does the other team get the ball, etc? LOTS of nuance to do it that way.

well, if the team who gets the original kickoff goes out and on the first play, throws a pick....well, they had an offensive possession didnt they?

the other team would then get theirs and if they scored, they win.

i dont think its that complicated

I think all those ideas stink. Yeah, I'll be watching a lot of games as challenges extend the game for an extra hour or so. I'd find it real exciting waiting for 10 minutes of more advertising to see dozens of plays reviewed. They tried it in hockey with goals and it was boring as hell.
Most of those ideas are pure garbage and if anything would destroy the game of football in very short order.
The only idea that has some merit is extending revenue sharing to include every source of revenue and there is about 1 billionth of a chance of getting that agreed upon.

I like the idea of six a lot too. If there is no cap in space, there could end up being a divide in the NFL, and it will take away the parity that makes the game so great. 3,4,5 are good, but if 6 doesn't come about, those three will be the least of the NFL's worries, because, like in the article, the NFL will split apart.
