Jeff Fisher on fate of the PAT

Posted by Chris Brown on February 21, 2014 – 7:20 pm

There has been much discussion on whether the extra point attempt is a necessary play anymore in the NFL. A key member of the NFL Competition Committee provided an update on where the fate of the PAT lies right now in the league’s decision making.

Fisher basically said if a change is made it won’t be enacted in the 2014 season.

“We’re just starting the process,” said Fisher. “The process basically involves digesting the information from the club surveys, that the committee sends out in January. There’s an awful lot of comments with respect to that. We’ve had several conversations on that, and we’ll continue to do that over the next few weeks and talk to ownership. But it’s unlikely – highly unlikely that we do something this year.

“You know, someone said there were five extra points missed last year. We were also told that they were all blocked. So you block an extra point at the end of a ballgame, which gives you a chance to win a ballgame, you’re taking a play away. Now, there’s been a lot of suggestions on how to do things, so we’re just pretty much kicking things around now. We’ll continue to do so.”
