Instead of having "Special Teams" each team should have another squad of anywhere between 10 and 20 guys who all dress in period uniforms and equipment. These are not members of the team per se. They're guys who probably couldn't make an NFL franchise but who still want to be a part of it. Think of them as some kind of bizarre throwback 12th man. They sit on the sidelines until a TD is scored and then they are solely responsible for coming in and doing these goal line extra point plays and literally anything goes. Leather helmets, no forward pass, everyone wears funky brown cleats and black socks. Freaky stripes EVERYWHERE
There. That's a change I could get behind. At least half of them need to be named "Sullivan".
