    The PFF curse. They had the Eagles ranked #1 for WR group last year. :)

    They basically killed the onside kick in the NFL currently with the rule changes. The odds of recovering a kick these days are remote. They’re not going to go back either as it was done for safety reasons.

    So I get their trying to find ways to give the would be kicking team more of a chance elsewhere.

    Yeah, I thought I saw the onside kick recovery percentage was no higher than 5% last season, and I think even that may be high. Without being able to get a running start and being restricted to having 5 players on each side of the kicker, there's just no way to recover the ball.

    I think I'd increase it to 4th and 20 though.

    To be fair, I believe the rationale was 4th and 15 from your own 25, so if you don't convert, you're basically giving away another 3 points, minimum.

    Yeah it’s not even a fighting chance anymore. Making a 4th & 15-20 yard first down is still unlikely but a fighting chance something like in 15-20% or whatever of success rate.

    4th & 15 conversions are in the 15-17% range depending on which time period you choose. The NFL likes to quote it at 16.8%. If you take the high end of that range, you're at a ~4% increase over non-surprise Onside Kicks before the rule changes that made them so difficult.

    Oh yeah. And he was overshadowed somewhat by Erik Williams. An underrated Godzilla.
