No Punts

leave a comment »

I’ve always been a believer in field position football, using defense, prudent offense, and a good kicking game to incrementally win games. I’ve even vastly enjoyed defense-dominated football games, including the 2008 Super Bowl between the Giants and the Patriots, a game where defenses completely dominated the first half.

Not this season.

I don’t want to see any punts this year.

I want to see mad shoot-outs, with teams moving up and down the field, going for it on fourth downs, where kicking field goals is only done if there are more than four yards to go on fourth downs inside the opponent’s 38.

I want to see no-huddle offenses, tight ends who can both run block and terrorize defenses out of the slot (that’s you, Jimmy Graham, and you, Jermaine Gresham, and you, Jarred Cook, and you two, too, Fred and Vernon Davis).

I want to see running backs break huge runs off–like LaMicahel James at Oregon– designed cutback runs out of spread formations with wide O-line splits.

Anyway, screw the D this year. Let the points rain down.
