There was a time, when you had to have a freak'n leg to get a touchback. You weren't crap for a kicker if you couldn't get the ball to soar high enough & far enough to allow your team to get down the field & prevent the other team from gaining just 20 yards. Now, I can do it. (Maybe ) Is the idea now to just give the other team 20 yards? I'm hearing these dumb ass anouncers gushing over these pitiful kicks that puts the ball in the stands..... what the hell are they thinking? To me, it's the same thing (sorta) as a punt. You don't go and pick a guy who can punt the ball from your 40 yard line into the stands. You get a guy with skill & talent who can put that ball on the 2 yard line. I would have thought the rule change was so that initial 20 yards a kick returner gets isn't unchallenged. Now they're getting 20 yards regardless. I would have thought Kickers would have been working on getting the ball higher & inside the 5 yard line.
