Seattle vs. Green Bay. December 27, 2009 at Lambeau Field in Green Bay, Wisconsin. By: Mike Morbeck
I think the stupidest rule change in the NFL was moving the extra point back. It adds no value to the game. People get excited about blocking, scrambling, running & passing and the work required to get a score.It's like all this skill and excitement to score 6 points and then just some mundane zero excitement single point try.Just watch.
The most successful NFL franchise of the last decade gets a lot of push back for being cheats. Yep, the New England Patriots always seem to be in some situation that makes you think that Belichick and company are up to no good.
When the game is close and every second counts, that's when smart NFL teams pull their best tricks. Those time wasting plays that eat the clock and destroy the other team's chances at a comeback can be all the difference between a .500 team and a playoff contender.
There used to be a time when if you caught the ball on the green, it was a complete pass. If you tackled a man with you head ever so slightly down, it was clean, and if you stuck your hand out in a certain way it wasn't interference. But rules and regulations have taken over in the most frustrating way.
