NFL 2024/25

Might as well get this started now it’s been a few weeks since the Super Bowl…

NFL committee earlier voted in favour of a revamp to the kick off return - effectively adopting the XFL approach to kick offs. I presume they are trying to encourage more kick off returns (2023 had the lowest rate for kick off returns in the league’s history) while minimising the risk of injuries.

Here’s what we can roughly expect it to look like, with a couple of small differences: https://x.com/adamschefter/status/1772615947922149879?s=46&t=ynww82GMl7VKBjthBflU0g

    actually really liking the new rule now I've got my head round it. kick offs were becoming really boring recently with no-one bothering to run them back
  • Options
    With so many stadiums being enclosed and kickers having absolutely massive range on them, they had to change the ruling or everyone would just kick it into touch every play and you may as well eliminate the need for a kicker for the most part

    I love the player safety aspect they are going for on tackles and kick offs.

    Then they announce 2 games on Christmas Day (Wednesday) so teams could play Sunday, Saturday then Wednesday at the back end of the season, utter nonsense!!

    I would guess his best chance is signed to practice squad, then maybe get a spot on special teams during the season. Going straight in as a WR or RB would be insane!

    I believe there's an extra practice squad slot for international players this year so there's more incentive to take a gamble on someone like LRZ and see if they can make it work. Would be surprised if he made the field straight away or even in preseason.

    You'd imagine if there's any coach and side who can scheme for someone raw like LRZ, it'd be the Chiefs. Be very interested to see if he actually does anything. Christian Wade got that 65-yard TD in pre-season but never saw a down of course.

    special teams would seem the way to go. With the new rules a player like him could be a perfect KO returner, the timing might be perfect for him

    Cowboys pulling up trees in the Free Agency...... sigh.....

    Think the draft is gonna be very interesting. 

    Am pretty sure Vikings are going be trading up now they have got two first round picks and you have got Giants, Raiders and the Donkeys maybe all looking to move up as well. Will Patriots go QB at 3 or trade to strengthen multiple areas? 

    Will Cardinals take Marvin Harrison Jr at 4, or rinse one of the QB needy teams

    I can see Pats leaning on Brissett for a year and trading down. I'd like us to trade down and still get Harrison Jr, somehow
  • Options
    Oh and can I just say, I am hoping Max Crosby being joined by Christian Wilkins are going to be causing carnage this season. 

    Probably gonna go 17-0 baby.
