Ban Punting?

Ban punting.

OK, maybe not ban it. A punting ban would provoke coronaries around the NFL. Coaches would be wandering zombie-like between film sessions, mumbling about "field position'' and "establishing the running game.'' They wouldn't know what to do. Conventional wisdom -- which is the only kind NFL coaches believe in -- would be history. Goodness knows what would happen next. Innovation, maybe.

So let's temper it some. Let's say no punting in the other team's territory. Let's parcel out punts: Three a game, use them wisely. Let's say if your team's record is 2-7 and it trails by two touchdowns in the 3rd quarter, it's not allowed to punt. At all. Every possession is four downs.

Thats 1/4th our playbook right there, can't take that away. Sing's claim to fame.
That would lead to some pretty retarded games if teams are turning it over on downs deep in their territory because they ran out of punts. Leave that ridiculousness for pee-wee football.

Will they melt in a bunt pan?

Ban valrod?

JK.

Punting is part of the 4 down rule system. You don't get a first, you can go for it or punt the ball.

Get rid of punting, and you are killing the essence of football.
