It's like Maino said on the post game. You have a 14 play, 70 yard drive, score a TD, and then you don't get the lead, because your kicker missed the PAT? That's lame.


Again, how is that making the scores higher?

It's making scores stupider.

I thought you said it was going to be high scoring games like Madden, now you're saying it makes scores stupider? While I agree Goodell is changing the game too much (mind you, this falls on the players more than Goodell when you dive deep into it) the moving of the extra point just makes sense. It took me a minute to warm up to it, but I like the added drama to it.

I find it a bit humorous. Back in the 80s or 90s there was talk of just giving a team 7 pts when they scored a TD since the PATs we almost automatic. Looks like the pendulum has swung the other direction. With all the "player safety" concerns it does surprise me a bit. A player is more likely to be injured on the new longer PAT than on the old one.

No matter what anyone thinks of the new PAT rule experiment, we can all agree that getting through a preseason game without 6 players pulling up with hammies is a big win.
thanks Post received 3 applause.

I guess I am one of the few who likes the new PAT rule. It provides excitement and goosebumps! I like that!

The two question marks I had going in were Tretter and Sherrod. I thought they both played really well! Should either Bacteria or Bulaga go down, we have a capable backup. Which leads me to a question, is Bahktiari's best position guard? He's a little short for the LT position.

I like it. Its still pretty damned likely but it's not as automatic and I could see a few more two point tries especially in games where weather is a strong factor.

Fuck that. Linsley can back up anywhere on the inside. Then there's also Lane Taylor.

If you can please enlighten me why would we cut a 24 year old that can be groomed to be a decent WR in the league?

Weather wasn't that great in this game, team never got into a groove. I'm sure the kid will groom up to be better then you expect. I don't think he sucks, I don't think his good either "a lot of work to be put in" well but for whatever the reason is I see something in him. I ain't ready to part ways with him yet that's all I'm saying.

Anyone else see some light at the end of the tunnel for this kid or it's only me?


I know what you mean. He can make plays, but lacks consistency. He surely has some upside to him, but he needs to be able to catch the ball regularly. I have been pulling for the guy with hopes that he will put it all together.
