Kickoffs now from the 35 instead of the 30
Touchback point is still 20 (proposal was 25)
All scoring plays will be confirmed by replay
coaches are not charged a challenge for those replays
all in all – I think its good for the Packers. We had a very spotty kick coverage team, and with the move forwards, Mason should get it into the end zone more frequently for touchbacks. I’m all for that! No more extreme nervousness at every kick!
Also, this hurts the Bears quite a bit with Hester. Between kicking a punt out of bounds and more touchbacks, a team can virtually neutralize him with solid and consistent kicking.
