Possible changes for the PAT and the Bucs get a new look

From where I sit it looks like the NFL is looking at a great idea...

Making the PAT actually a challenge would create all sorts of permutations for the game. With this suggested scenario a 2-point conversion would remain at the 2-yard line. That's actually worth pursuing. The current PAT is so mindlessly a chip shot it's hardly worth risking injury to accomplish. I would rather see teams just get the 7 points. It also slows down replays both on TV and any in-game challenges. A kick from the 25-yard line is hardly a guarantee, it's still close enough to be makeable for any of the top kickers and most of the 2nd tier. It would also give the defense a chance to block the kick. Honestly, at this point in time anything wold be an improvement of the current eye-glazing PAT.

Meanwhile, the Buccaneers have unveiled their new uniforms...

It's a unique look to say the least. This bears more of a resemblance to something I would expect to see in the Arena League. The colouring and piping are bold and unique, however the numbers look more like an alarm clock than a football jersey.  All that being said it's a vast improvement on their awful creamsicle look. And in the end, this will sell merchandise and make the team more money...and that's the real point.

At least that's how I see it...and I sit in the cheap seats.
