Next week, the NFL’s owners meetings will take place in San Francisco and there will be a few opportunities to vote on rule changes. When it comes to the extra point, there are three proposed changes. The Patriots (booo) have proposed snapping the ball from the 15-yard line for the PAT. But the Eagles have pitched something different. From Bleeding Green Nation, which cites an AP report:
Philadelphia proposes snapping from the 15 for the kick, but moving the ball to the 1 for a 2-point conversion. The Eagles also want the defense to be able to score the points if it returns a turnover on the 2-point conversion to the other end zone.
Two-point returns? I’m down. But if the rest of this goes through, you can prepare for ESPN calling it the “Tim Tebow Rule” until Tebow never actually sees the field… or until Bradford gets hurt and Sanchez stinks and Tebow becomes the starting quarterback in Week 4. Get your shirts now!
