more chances of missed/blocked FGs. more 1/2 point games. So teams would be more likely to be down by a FG or less on their last drive instead of having to get into the endzone.
as it is right now, the extra point try is a formality. there is no effort given by the defending special teams. basically a bunch of fat backups stand opposite each other and create a giant mass.

what do you do in a two-point scenario?
What the nfl should do is make the s oring team kick from wherever they score...similar to rugby
So if score straight on, good chance you make it. If you put it in the corne, the 2pt conversion might be a better option
Jackie Robinson isn't dirty. This isn't Pack Pride.
leave it the same. the NFL has tried to increase the incentive for teams to go for 2pts in the past.
edit- the same as in 2yd line.
I think they should just eliminate the kick.... No xtra point unless you want to go for two which if you fail your td was only worth 6 points
It should just be eliminated as wiscy suggested.
In regards to game design, the one-point reward should be granted 100% of the time if selected (safe choice) and the two-point reward should be granted only 50% of the time (risk choice).
If nothing else, it would speed up the game.
Make the guy scoring the touchdown have to kick the extra point.
Lol at the sight of Gronk kicking after a TD

you know what would be cool? If they turned a ground rule double a ground rule triple.
Why does everyone want to mess with a game that's perfectly entertaining?
Because PATs aren't.
classlessthug: I have too much on my plate to worry about the fact that my junk intimidates some needle D undergrad.
This. Goodell and his trained donkeys already jack around with the rules so much that the regular season records are meaningless.
walks aren't exciting but they are part of the game as a whole. My point is that there is nothing wrong with football but people still want to tweak major parts of the game for no viable reason.
I'm mostly just effing with you and for the most part I agree with you, but I don't think adding a wrinkle to PATs messes with the integrity of the game as much as a lot of the other GoodeLOL changes.
The extra points are untuned and let the networks show mad commercials. It's not going anywhere
Here's my friend's suggestion:
Have the televised and radio broadcasts 1 hour time shifted. Remove the tv timeouts from the live game and just add them to the time shifted TV/radio broadcast. That way the fans in attendance don't have to sit through all the tv timeouts. Also makes the live experience more worthwhile to attend.
Edit: wait that doesn't quite work.

That is a truly terrible idea.
eamhokie94: Is your name Nazi in pig Latin?
exactly. is this something that is actually being debated by the NFL like changing kick offs? or is this just pure hypothetical? either way very bad idea.
the NFL should focus on better equipment instead of changing the fundamentals of the game.
PATs are still in effect but the other team gets T-shirt cannons, hit the ball and cannon team gets an extra 3 points.
NFL scoring wasn't always 6/1/3, FWIW. Hell, field goals used to be worth more than TDs.
There obviously is something wrong with football. Doesn't have to do with this particular play but when a significant number of former players are developing mental problems than you have a problem.
Football is perfect.
But that would take away our enjoyment of moments like this:
SEATTLE (AP) -- All Tony Romo had to do was put the ball down and let Martin Gramatica make an easy kick -- just 19 yards, even closer than an extra point.
Move it back 5 or 10 yards and don't center the ball (side-to-side placement based on the TD).
