Can we all just agree that this is the best thing to come out of the Bill Belichick documentary?
“Philosophically, plays that are non-plays shouldn’t be in the game. I don’t think it is good for the game. Extra points, when the odds are 99 percent range in extra points it is not a play. Let’s move the ball back to the 15-20 yard line and not make it a tap in. Let them kick it. Same thing with the kickoff return, if you’re just going to put the ball on the 20, put the ball on the 20.”
I love it. Thank you, Belichick, for calling it like it is. There’s been a lot of talk about the new kickoff rules, which I know are reported to be for safety reasons - but this is the kicking rule I’d like to see changed. My opinion was that they could just remove the extra point all together and make teams go for 2. However, moving the kick back and making it less automatic would be fine in my book.

A touchdown is six points. Not seven. The extra point was designed to be a bonus opportunity for extra points not a given, which it has become. I think moving extra points back would add even more drama and strategy to the game. I’m for it.
I support this 100%.
I know a lot of people don’t like Bill and I have no idea why (besides rivalries). He doesn’t give a fuck. He will say what he wants to say and he’s usually right.
