    Give defense incentive in the PAT then. This "better" game of football is driving me nuts. The only change I wanna see is the ones that bring physical play back into the game. Dont give me garbage about reviewing penalties for hits. Let 'em hit. I know I seem like I am dragging my knuckles here, but of all that can be repaired, you wanna talk about a PAT?! There is always still that chance that it can be missed, a botched snap....and it effects the game. Rare? Yes, but it does happen.

    I am totally fine with removing extra points.

    2 point conversions become 1 point conversions.

    Nothing really changes. It just saves 30 seconds of real time (not game time) every time a team scores a TD.

    I'm too lazy to check out the article, but some here have mentioned the fact that 2 point conversions would still be in play. I highly doubt that... they'd be 1 point conversions.

    This sounds good to me. Honestly the extra point is worthless.

    It's understood today in the NFL it's almost impossible to block an extra point unless you're offsides.

    Like when Pollard did it for us.

    Special Teams are important part of the game. I don't like the idea of removing the extra point, boring play or not.

    There may be no incentive, but it'd save time instead of making the special teams go out for something thats basically handed to you.

    Either that, or move going for 1 and going for two back about ten yards for 2, twenty plus for a PAT.
    Add some distance, make it harder on the kickers, make them earn it, instead of just taking it.

    Yeah, sounds great until you're at the opponent's 35 with 15 seconds left and down two. Time to trot the punter out there and hope for the best!

    Nah. You gotta up your lateral game at that point.

    We're going to make this league fun again.
