Two kickers missed extra point’s last night; Is the experiment working?

This year’s experiment with moving the extra point back to the 15-yard line for the first two weeks of the preseason claimed a couple of victims on Friday night. Saints kicker Shayne Graham missed a point after touchdown, as did Panthers kicker Jordan Gay.

So I want to know what you think? I was a kicker and feel a 33 yard field goal is very easy to make, but it has already shown to make it more difficult to score.

The new rule makes extra points the equivalent of a 33-yard field goal, instead of the normal distance of 20 yards.

Saints coach Sean Payton was not happy with Shayne Graham’s missed kick.

“Listen, the ball’s on the 15-yard line, so we’re not talking about hitting a 50-yard field goal here,” Payton said. “I’d like to think we can hit a field goal when it’s on the 15.”
