Default NFL changes kickoff rule to help Nate

Lol...kickoffs will be from the 35 yard line now instead of the 30. What are the odds we can get Nate to have a few more touchbacks?

Even if he kicks it in the end zone, why take it on the 25 when they can just run it back for a TD?

This is a dumb change. It eliminates some players form the game. Sproles free agent market is pretty much gone.

If anything this puts even more a premium on the ELITE returners, guys that average 30+ yards per return and can still make big runbacks out of the endzone. The mediocre ones are just a lot more expendable since you can get the ball on the 20 with or without their services.

Well, it's too bad this rule didn't go into effect before our lousy ST. We really could have benefited from it.

Now kickoffs will essentially be pointless. You might as well just automatically start the player at the 25. With 5 yards extra of kicking room, the ball will almost always reach the end zone.
