For instance using the suggestion earlier, team is down by 11 with limited time. If they get a quick TD do they go for 2 leaving a FG to tie or back it up so a FG wins but a miss means they'll need another TD to win.
The added strategy element is intriguing. One of the many great facets of the game is the design of strategy, so this is one of those issues that could have some interesting scenarios for teams and fans to ponder.

My initial reactions to this kind of suggestion is to leave it alone. However, that doesn't mean that I'm not open to hearing ideas and accepting them if they add to the game.

Extra points are rather boring. I cannot really defend it because it's gotten so routine and monotonous. I liked it when they added 2 point conversion options, so this might be another element that grows on me over time.
