oh yeah, you're right. There are still some obscure rules in the books that crafty coaches exploit every once in awhile. Always weird to see and something I obviously rarely remember!

On a side note, aren't kickers in the history books as the top scorers in the NFL? I thought I'd heard recently that the top 10 leaders in career points are kickers.

Top 10 career scorers:

Quote:
1. Morten Andersen 2,544 1982-2007 5TM
2. Gary Anderson 2,434 1982-2004 5TM
3. Jason Hanson 2,150 1992-2012 det
4. John Carney 2,062 1988-2010 7TM
5. Matt Stover 2,004 1991-2009 3TM
6. George Blanda+ 2,002 1949-1975 4TM
7. Jason Elam 1,983 1993-2009 2TM
8. Adam Vinatieri 1,972 1996-2013 2TM
9. John Kasay 1,970 1991-2011 3TM
10. Norm Johnson 1,736 1982-1999 4TM
Jerry Rice is the first non-kicker at 31.

But QBs are not considered to have scored. The points go to the receivers. Peyton would have 2886 passing points.

Holy cow about Manning!

Thanks for the heads up about Rice at 31. Interesting bit of trivia.
