Doug Flutie's Dropkick

I'm simply posting Doug Flutie's picture of his dropkicked PAT simply for the historocity of the moment. It is the first dropkick since 1941. Every rugby fan / player has the dropkick in the arsenal. I'm surprised teams don't do more of them. Dropkicking from any point on the field would yield three points.

I think the biggest reason Doug hasn't whipped this out before is that is has to be done from behind the line of scrimmage in the NFL. He was pretty far back from the linemen.

I vote for a change of the rules. You should be able to dropkick from anywhere in the field, regardless of the line of scrimmage.

It's still harder than a rugby dropkick. The pointiness of the football complicates the drop.
