Yeah, HORRIBLE thread title. An owner bouncing a crazy idea off the wall is not the NFL considering something.
They will never widen the field. You change dimensions now, and every record becomes obsolete. Different game entirely.
Owners should be trying to get the league to extend the goal posts about 3-4 feet higher at the top. A kicker can only kick a ball so high. About 3-4 feet would completely eliminate any borderline in/out FG calls.
