Rantings from the redhead: Rule change for Dallas Cowboys’ Dan Bailey?

These will be the words of a confused Dan Bailey. For those reading this who don’t know, the NFL has made a change in the process of the extra point. The ball will now be spotted at the 15 yard-line, making the total distance of a kick 33 yards. Personally, I think it’s a pretty dumb and useless change. What’s next Roger Goodell? Change the referee’s shirts to have horizontal...

Dan Bailey: The new PAT requires the same skill set

Dallas Cowboys kicker Dan Bailey has been one of the most accurate kickers in the NFL over the last few seasons. He is not disappointed with the NFL's new rule to move the distance for an extra point from the 2-yard line to the 15-yard line, but he is confused.  "I think there was talk that they wanted to add, quote, 'skill,' to the kick," Bailey told Todd Archer of ESPN.com.

New PAT Rules Shouldn't Be a Problem for Dan Bailey

The NFL came out today with changes to be made to arguably the least interesting part of a football game: the point-after-touchdown kick from the one. The success rate for this point was over 99%, seemingly too automatic and predictable. It has now been moved to the 15-yard line, a 32-yard field goal with around 90% success, in order to make the kick more exciting.However, this change...
