http://www.nj.com/rutgersfootball/index.ssf/2011/06/politi_inspired_by_eric_legran.html I remember watching NFL preseason games and marveled at how many players got hurt on kickoffs and I wouldn't miss watching kickoffs since we wouldn't have to spend time waiting for an injuried player to take their time getting back to the sideline unless that player is carted off. Anyone note that people are getting hurt more often on kickoff returns. That was before the NFL moved back the kickoffs to the 35 yard line so there would be more touchbacks. Rutgers Head Coach Greg Schiano's idea is as follows: Can anyone imagine football with no kickoffs? It would be difficult to do since it's awesome to see those long kickoff returns but player safety is an issue these days. The idea of using skill instead of luck is a very appealing one.
