It doesn't happen often but, if the returner breaks thru the first wave of defenders the kicker has to ATTEMPT to make a tackle. It can be quite amusing to see.
Do you think that 3 points is a bit low for a field goal?Maybe 4 points?
3 points is okay with me. Although, the point may be moot in the no-so-distant future. The NFL seems to pushing for the elimination of kickers and punters from the game completely. They say that kickers are defenseless when on the field.
I guess because they aren't 300lb behemoths they are considered too fragile. There is a saying in the NFL that kickers/punters are NOT football players, they are kickers. Funny to me that they get so little respect when it's the kickers who decide many, many games.
