Re: Steelers and the new kick off rule...
I do think it benefits the Steelers although it adds an extra layer of boredom to the game itself.
So a team scores, then the network cuts away for 2 minutes of commercials killing any of the excitement. Then the kicker kicks one through the endzone and the network cuts away for another 2 minutes of commercials. It's the most boring time of the game besides halftime now.
