    Peter King looks at the PAT, how it might be eradicated, why it might no be, and what some of the proposed alternatives might entail. My question isn't whether there's a better option out there; there almost certainly is. My question is, why is there suddenly a rush to make this change right now? I've been paying pretty close attention to football since the late 1980s, and the extra point kick has been nigh-automatic that entire time. So what spurred the NFL, after 30-plus years of this, to suddenly look around and say "Hey! Extra points are boring! We should fix that!"

  • NFL Bans Patriots' Ineligible Receiver Ploy
    I am sad. Not because I'm a Patriots fan. As a Patriots fan, it was fun watching them pull off the craziness with the declared ineligible receivers. It was fun trying to figure out what the heck was going on, and watching John Harbaugh try to figure out what the heck was going on. But that specific trick wasn't going to work over and over. It's not like life got harder for the Patriots offense today. No, I'm sad because changing the rules makes it harder for other coordinators to come up with interesting, crazy new wrinkles on what the Patriots were doing.read more

    The NFL is taking its big draft show on the road for the first time in 50 years, and the two biggest names to enter the league might not be in attendance.Florida State QB Jameis Winston has said he might not go to the draft in Chicago — moved from New York City for the first time in half a century — and now Oregon QB Marcus Mariota appears to be skipping, too, per ESPN's Adam Schefter.Like Jameis Winston, Marcus Mariota does not plan to attend NFL Draft in Chicago, per league sources.

  • newJ.J. Watt shows off acting, singing chops in 'New Girl' episode
    When he's not training in a log cabin of sorts, J.J. Watt is acting. And singing.Seriously.The Paul Bunyan-esque offense wrecker for the Houston Texans is apparently a big fan of the show "New Girl." Although we confess to having not seen the critically acclaimed program, we are fans of the work of leading lady Zooey Deschanel. And now Ms. Deschanel and Mr. Watt can say they've been teammates, having worked together on an episode of the show.Watch above for a tease of Watt singing and — we think — ad libbing through what could be a funny few scenes in "The Right Stuff" episode.

    A hot take on the Carolina Panthers from my son's elementary school newspaper. pic.twitter.com/uxzeurkcIl— Jeff Atkins (@atkinsjeff) March 30, 2015In some respects, the Carolina Panthers had a successful 2014 campaign. They won their division, made the playoffs and even won a wild-card weekend game against the Arizona Cardinals before losing to the then-defending Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks. Cleveland Browns fans pray for such a season.But one elementary school student isn't buying that hype. Not by any stretch of the child's imagination. In a piece penned for a grade-school newsp…

  • newJameis Winston explains why he might not be in Chicago for NFL draft
    If Jameis Winston doesn't attend the NFL draft in Chicago, and he goes No. 1 as expected to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, it will be a rare occurrence.It seems like every first overall pick – and this isn't just NFL, we're talking NBA and NHL too – is on hand, and walks across the stage and greets the commissioner and gets the photo op that will live on forever. But there have been reports that Winston won't attend the draft. He is widely expected to be the first overall pick on April 30.After his pro day workout on Tuesday, Winston appeared on NFL Network and said that he hasn't made a fin…

    With a month left before the draft, one of the more interesting prospects is Wisconsin running back Melvin Gordon.There has been a ton of talk about running backs not going in the first round for consecutive years, a lot of talk about Georgia back Todd Gurley's ceiling (and his knee injury), and there sits Gordon, coming off a phenomenal near-Heisman season at Wisconsin.In a "Path to the Pros" interview with Stack.com, Gordon lays out his goal, and that's to outdo every other back in the 2015 class."I want to be the best back, that's my goal," Gordon said.Gordon is known for his big runs,…

    A loyal Twitter follower asked me a few days prior to free agency a question about his beloved Green Bay Packers, something along the lines of: “Are my Packers finally going to do something in free agency?” (I for some reason can’t find the original tweet, perhaps because my answer might have led him to infer how silly the question sounded to me and delete the son of a gun.)It was short and sweet:“No.”Mind you, this was one year after the Packers had done the unthinkable: Sign an aged Julius Peppers to a bloated three-year contract (!) worth beaucoup dollars. It got Packers fans a…

  • Other side of concussion issue: Austin Collie can't find NFL work
    When linebacker Chris Borland walked away from the NFL, he said it was because he was aware of the concussion risks and decided that wasn't for him anymore.Receiver Austin Collie presumably knows all the risks too. But he can't land an NFL job, even though he wants to. He thinks his concussion history is the reason. Collie signed with the Canadian Football League's B.C. Lions earlier this year as he attempts his comeback. His NFL story is a tough one: A fourth-round pick with the Colts in 2009, Collie was off to a great start with 15 touchdowns and more than 1,200 yards in his first 25 caree…

  • OMG, Lions linebacker DeAndre Levy stands on a moving plane
    It makes sense that NFL players are thrill seekers. You don't go through the adrenaline rush of playing on Sundays in the fall and then sit at home all offseason and watch old movies.That's why Tom Brady was giving New England Patriots fans a heart attack by cliff diving. But Brady's rush looks like playing in the kiddie pool compared to Detroit Lions linebacker DeAndre Levy's mode of offseason relaxation.Someone turned off the "Fasten Seat Belts" sign on Levy's flight, so he went up to the top of the old Red Baron propeller biplane and took in the flight from there.

    The New York Jets have made a big splash this offseason, adding key pieces such as Darrelle Revis, Antonio Cromartie and Brandon Marshall. But NBC analyst — and, oh yeah, former New England Patriots safety — Rodney Harrison doesn't seem all that impressed. “You can say whatever you want about Darrelle Revis — and I do believe he’s the best cornerback in the league — but Darrelle Revis has not thrown a touchdown pass," Harrison said, via ESPN.com. "He’s not your quarterback. Yes, he can shut down a No. 1 receiver, but they need a quarterback. The Jets are, all of a sudden, on a…
