If anyone really cares about getting rid of the PAT (point after attempt) because it seems too automatic, then just make the kick more difficult. The problem is where do you put the ball? I mean most of these NFL kickers can bang out a fifty yard field goal with their eyes closed now. The knock on this is that a fifty yard extra point would make it worth trying to block, and this would create injuries for a stupid extra point. I myself think you don't move the ball back, but move it over. Move the line over to the far right or the far left, and kick it from the two yard line. That type of kick would take some serious talent and actually might make field goals more difficult too, if the kickers have to kick PATs from the sideline, they get out of the habit of just driving the ball forward as hard as they can.

Let Me Tell You How to Ice a Kicker
This Is Me
I have been bouncing around online for just about 20 years, so I have been there and have done that. It doesn't mean I didn't like it and wouldn't do it again. As most humans, I am a social animal. To be a social animal on the internet it is social media that binds us all together. I prefer Google + and Twitter but have pages on the other ones that I ignore, so you probably should too.
I blog a lot. If you don't like people that blog a lot then I don't know how you got here to begin with. You may want to just move along.
Contrary to popular opinion I hate politics, but have political opinions ..
The easiest way to get under my skin is to apply the "all you talk about is politics" tag. This is a common knee jerk reaction some have when they see something political, and unfortunately I don't hold back sometimes. As a matter of fact, I share more about health, fitness and blogging than politics, which you would know if you weren't busy dismissing me. I actually follow and interact with more people that disagree with me than agree with me politically. The list of "other than politics" seems to be growing everyday and it probably looks a lot like this:
- Blogging (I am a blogger and I blog a lot. Get used to it.)
- Health & Fitness (Avid bodybuilder and diet guru)
- Photography (If I don't know your language now you know why I follow you)
- Android (I love Android, and wouldn't wipe my rear end with an iPhone)
- Humor (If you are funny, I am going to like you)
- Sports (Patriots and Red Sox mostly)
- Music (You'd be surprised how diverse I get here)
- Quotes (I love quotes from historical and hysterical figures)
