A rule that won't get tabled or approved is Washington's suggestion to move the kickoff line up to the 40, from the 35, based on player safety. "That one makes no sense to me,'' said one NFL coach. "That will only encourage teams to pooch their kickoffs more often, rather than going for the touchback, and wind up increasing the amount of contact that kickoffs produce. I guess Washington proposed it because they had the worst special teams in the league last season.''
