So, apparently the idea is going to be floated this spring to possibly propose narrowing goalposts in the NFL. The great folks at National Football Post reported this story yesterday morning as the possibility of this idea coming up at a Spring meeting of the NFL competition committee. While Len Pasquarelli of the NFP.com doesn’t think this idea will gain traction, the mere idea that this is even something that might be considered is outlandish.
Yes, in recent weeks we saw Denver Broncos QB Matt Prater break the long standing field goal record, booting a 64-yarder in Denver. Prater is a superb kicker, notice the location, in Denver. Baltimore’s Justin Tucker kicked a game winning 61-yarder in Detroit last Monday night. Tucker missed a chip shot on Sunday against the Patriots after kicking 33 straight.
