Should the NFL adopt the XFL style kickoff?

The kickoff is pretty sweet if you watched the XFL. It was the only thing I liked about the XFL and wanted the NFL to adopt.

What exactly is a hip drop tackle? You hit someone in the hip and they go down? It is just another subjective way for the defense to be penalized.

Well now we need a kick returner/punt returner. Can we please draft a wide receiver that specializes in returning for the love of s**t just do it one time. Just drop Danny Gray.

we needed a new return man regardless of the rule change (McCloud signed with ATL)

but like I said, I think Deebo would be very dangerous in this new format
If only this rule was in effect years ago, they'd have 2 more super bowl victories. Time to recover being hit by a loose ball

Anything would be an improvement on the kickoff the way it has evolved until now.

I like this new rule.

Now, about the hip-drop...

I'm not a big fan of the new rule, but like you said, anything is better.

Hip drop will be very interesting.

The KR just got way more important.

Good spot for Deebo.

Deebo Samuel Sr. will be our KO return man and he's gonna excel at it

Me too.

Hopefully we only use Mitchell or Mason for KO returns…..until the playoffs. Then it's Deebo
