Commissioner Roger Goodell recently proposed an idea that would eliminate kick offs in the NFL. After a touchdown or field goal, instead of kicking off, a team would get the ball on its own 30 yard line and the down would be 4th and 15. The options would be to go for the first down or punt the ball away. If you go for it and don't pick up a first down the opposing team takes possession where the previous play ended. The motivation behind the proposal is player safety, but is a rule change of this magnitude setting a bad precedence?
