The PFF curse. They had the Eagles ranked #1 for WR group last year.
NFL considering 4th-and-15 onside kick proposal among other rule changes
What the hell? What coach wouldn't want to have a 4th & 15 instead of an onside kick if they needed to get the ball back? It seems way too easy.
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.

I have no memory of this. I cannot believe it happened or that I forgot it.
@Captain Dave Poulin He had better be one of your favorites.
Oh yeah. And he was overshadowed somewhat by Erik Williams. An underrated Godzilla.
Thank ****. One of the most hateful and self-defeating rules ever. Imagine what it's like when the "local" team is first the Cardinals and then the Rams.
Any thoughts i had of being "athletic for my size" are now gone.
