So NFL Network is showing Canadian Football games now (according to the commercial, because it's football, and football is awesome). I'm watching because I have nothing better to do, and it's hit me that we would be an awesome CFL team.
- You only get 3 downs, so our defense would have one less chance to screw up.
- Wider/longer field=more room for spread offense to be awesome (although mitigated somewhat by 12 players per team on the field)
- Backfield players can be in motion before the snap, so our receivers can get a running start downfield.
- A missed field goal downed in the end zone gets a single point, which is good for us
Obviously that was a joke, but it is still interesting to watch this game that is recognizable, but still quite foreign.
