I wonder if Jack Fox would hit the roof of indoor stadiums?
You have to hand it to the Raiders for thinking outside the box.
I thought the league already stopped this. Raiders found a loop hole in the rule to allow a holder but the league fixed it
Why don’t they just get rid of kickoffs. How many more do we need to see that aren’t returned?
do you really?
I have no doubt. Coach Dan was saying he tells them which rafters he is going to kick it in-between in the practice facility. hahahahahahah.
We do the same thing without the holder, in kicking it short so they have to return. We all know Fox can blast it out of the end zone. I want him to practice FGs so we can see the first 85/90 yard FG.
When kicking outdoors in practice, Fox has to account for coriolis forces to determine which time zone the ball will land in.
If it wasn’t for onside kicks being needed to make games exciting at the end, they’d probably already be gone.
I miss seeing kickoff returns and having that extra weapon as your kickoff returner like we did in the past. Now it doesn’t even matter who you have back there.
I know I’m missing a few other greats we’ve had
The only time you really see returns is on windy days outdoors. Then the kickers struggle to kick it deep. In Dome stadiums, most of the kickers can kick it through endzone.
Here’s a question:
If kickoffs are so dangerous (which I’m not arguing), why didn’t college or high school change the rules to get rid of them like the pros?
It’s a fair question, the answer is likely because the nfl keeps getting sued over player safety issues. So they change the rules to make it seem like they care about the players. Optics is everything.
