Rule On Kicker Icing Should Be Changed
By Merrill Reese: You can debate the practice of freezing the kicker all you want. It can worth both ways. Fortunately it didn’t kill the Eagles last Sunday night. My problem is the rule itself, permitting the timeout to be called at the last possible second. At that point you get a full line collision and a meaningless kick. Coaches should be able to signal timeout only until the center sets up over the ball in a field goal alignment.
