The NFL has done lost it's mind!

NFL has considered widening the playing field 35 feet, and reportedly may revisit the idea

WRs, Speed RBs & Big armed QBs would have to be licking their chops.

This is fascinating. What impacts would it have? My initial thinking is the following:

1. Everybody would get smaller. This change would place more emphasis on speed, so everyone on the field would get smaller to gain that speed.

2. The market for speed would get bigger among running backs and linebackers.

3. The market for shiftiness would get bigger among WRs and DBs. They're already playing out on the edge, so they'd have more space to operate. Increasing their speed wouldn't matter so much, but increasing their ability to work in space would be important.

4. Cannon-armed quarterbacks would be at a premium. You'd have to throw the ball 3 or 5 yards further just for a WR screen, and it would increase with deeper routes. Arm strength and velocity would become more important.

5. Running quarterbacks would go wild.

6. Would the hash marks get wider? That would place a premium on kicker accuracy over kicker range, and we'd probably see fewer long field goals.

7. Returns would be much shorter because kickers and punters could make returners run all over the field to get the ball. However, the returners would become much faster, so you might end up seeing more short returns and more touchdowns.

Wait. Did I just describe the CFL? Did I just waste that three minutes?

Might as well have 12 guys on the field. This is just stupid. I'm sick of Goodell thinking of stupid ways to change the game. Football was better before Goodell. Not that its bad now, but he's done more harm than good with the league.

I think if they're going to screw with the basic dimensions of the field, they should just go ahead and add hills and water traps too.

You'd think so but really, it just makes every quarterback, regardless of talent, more effective. That's why shitty NFL QBs can play in the CFL.

The more area a defense has to defend, the easier it is to attack. With a wider field, weak-armed QBs can put more air under the ball.

I was going to say -Is there a stadium that can give up 35 yards-but I like your ideas better

Don't think it could ever happen. They would probably have to redesign a lot of the stadiums or else the players would literally be backed up right againts the stands like an Arena League game.

NFL stadiums should become like MLB. Every stadium should have different field sizes and dimensions.

I've got a better idea... lets make the field diamond shaped, and we'll have one offensive guy stand on plate that we'll call "homeplate", then he will swing a wooden stick at a football thrown at him by a "pitcher".

Except the football is now perfectly round and smaller, so when the O guy hits the ball with the stick he will have to run around 3 "bases" without letting a guy with the ball touch him.

I smell a winner here guys, i'm going to flesh this out a little more and send it to Goodell.
