4th & 15 Replacing Onside Kicks???

Recommended Posts

I am totally opposed to this.  The recent years' issues with the extremely low onside kick rate are actually very easily manageable in the same exact way that they dealt with the extra point changes.  You let teams declare they will be going for an onside kick, and then they are allowed to line up using the old kickoff rules.  There was never a concern about the lack of onside recoveries in the old days, and the injury risks have never been the same for onsides as they are for standard kickoffs, so it's the most simplistic change that aligns with the history of the game.

The NFL has become already excessively offensive-centric as it is, this is a whole new level that's really changing the game.
