    Sure, but if you look at it, that only happens on a tiny percentage of kickoffs. I don't think removing that part of the game would have a huge impact, really. The biggest impact may come in freeing...

    Not really. They usually come out somewhere between the twenty and thirty. Not a lot of teams consistently get big returns.

    Punts are an integral part of the 'actual' game. They're performed on regular downs. By taking punts out of the game you're severely limiting the ways in which teams can manipulate field position. ...

    Sure, but tagging a defensive tackle isn't nearly as expensive as tagging a quarterback. It's really not comparable.

    Tagging Flynn is a huge risk with very little upside.

    Why? It's not an integral part of the game, much of the excitement has already been taken out of it and it's usually just an occasion to go grab another beer.

    Yes. I don't see the need for kickoffs in this game, honestly. Just give the opponent the ball at the 25 after a score and go play ball.

    He could, but why would he? Even so, assuming Flynn would be willing to do is an even bigger risk for the Packers. If Flynn is franchised, Flynn has all the leverage and the Packers have none.

    Let him walk and tag Finley. Tagging Flynn is pretty risky in the first place, and that salary will make it very hard to trade him - plus, they'd have to let Finley walk to do so. I don't see it...

    So pushing the kickoff forward 5 yards caused a 5-yard decrease in average starting field position. Neat.


    I wonder what it did for the variance of kickoffs. I felt like there were more very...

    Bruce Allen has always been a terrific salary cap/contracts manager. Too bad he isn't nearly as good of a judge of talent.

    Retention credits would be interesting. The long-term view of building a franchise. I wonder how much you'd see front-office/coaching staff turmoil reflected in those numbers.

    Also I have a problem with the way you evaluate those drafts. Retention rates are very dependent on the...

    I don't disagree with Bengals1181 that the last three Bengals draft can hold up with 90% of the league. 90% of the league is not overly successful drafting consistently.

    RG3 has just two things on Luck: open-field running and arm strength/deep ball. Everything else Andrew Luck is better at, basically.

    Wait, why is this relevant? The increase in touchbacks and non-returns was a consequence of the move up of kickoffs. In fact, that was the point of moving up those kickoffs: to reduce the number of...

    It's explained in the article. It's because of how option bonuses are accounted for (pro-rated). It's a $7 million difference, though, not a $1 million difference.
