Oh that's an easy one. if you have a kicker that can boot it thru the end zone each and every time, that removes the possibility of long run backs, injuries, penalties, etc.... all those variables that make kickoffs interesting for the fans but drive coaches nuts.

Plus, your defense knows where it's starting and has a decent idea (if you have a capable D-coordinator) of what plays the opposing offense is going to run. Most teams go run-first - or dink & dunk if they pass at all - in the shadow of their own goalposts. So that should make things easier for the defense.

I like where your head is at - and trust me, I'd LUUUV to see it pulled off - but the truth is it takes a perfect storm for your scenario to work as planned.
