Roger Goodell Considering Eliminating The Extra Point [POLL]

As the season draws closer to it’s conclusion, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and the league’s competition committee review what worked this season and what needed tweeking for next year. One of the major changes that Roger Goodell is considering is eliminating the PAT (Extra Point). This has been a part of the game for as long as I can remember.

If you really think about it, the PAT is pretty useless and is a waste of time. Sure it gives the offenses and defenses time to relax, but it’s not long. In an article on ESPN’s website Goodell stated,

The extra point is almost automatic. I believe we had five missed extra points this year out of 1,200 some odd [attempts]. So it’s a very small fraction of the play, and you want to add excitement with every play.

The question then becomes, what do you do in place of the PAT in regards to scoring? One suggestion Goodell had was give 7 points for a touchdown and give the option of an extra play that would either yield 8 points if successful and 6 if not. I want to know what you think!
