View Full Version : 1 more thing - fair catches inside 10 yd line?

In the old days, I think the teaching was to let them bounce at the 10 yard line or inside, to not fair catch them.

In the last 3 games, it seems we've fair caught them a LOT within the 10 yard line, especially by #84.

Has the strategy changed with kickoffs at the 35 yard line now, or are we making mistakes here too?

Changing where kickoffs start should have nothing whatsoever to do with where you field punts (2 completely different plays entirely). Antonio Brown should have let that punt he fair caught at the 5 bounce into the end zone.
