    So are we over this take a knee business?

    Or is it going to ballon up again? The NFL allows fair catches on kickoffs now, placing the ball at the 25 yard line. A horrbile rule. What will they legeslate out next the national anthem?
    Tomlin hasn't won a playoff game in seven years and counting. The earliest will be eight years. I guess that in Art Rooney's II, opinion is worth a 3 year extension.

    Our 2024 draft looks to be grade A. Our 2023 draft is an A. The roster is talented, but Mike Tomlin is still the head coach.

    *** Mike Tomlin is the best coach since the AFL- NFL merger that has not won a playoff game in 8 seasons or more. It's either him or Lewis. ***

    It's basically the end of kick returns. You now get it at the 25 if it's in the EZ or fair caught outside the EZ. Within a few years I could see them just eliminating the kickoff and placing the ball at the 25.

    They keep diminishing the special teams aspect of the sport almost every year.

    College started doing this a few years ago. No issue with it, teams can still choose to return it if they want. I think if you drop the fair catch you spot the ball at that point if its recovered by the return team.
    I lost a bet about Najee gaining 1300 yards.

    "Our head coach has failed to win a playoff game for seven years in a row. His game day strategy, culture of divas, in game decisions, clock management, player evaluation, hires, and affinity with sub par starters at RB, P, and OL are holding the Steelers back. That standard remains the standard"

    There’s were 12 votes against it the day before it got approved. Goodell did his best to change 4 of the votes.

    Read that it’s approved for this year and then they’ll take a look at it.
    hopefully it changes back next year

    Well college has been doing it already, also you can still return it if you want. There are pros and cons to the rule but I dont think I would call it "horrible".

    Terrible podcast was wondering if teams will kick very high and short. Try to force teams to fair catch and move back to the 25 or try a return on a play which probably has a high risk of fumbling.

    Good news is that I think it's only a one year trial with this rule. We can hope it won't be permanent.

    If they do that, it's gonna cut down on how many player spots there are. No need for ST players.
