Draft Scout Dan Bailey News
08/05/14 - K Dan Bailey will get his first shot at the league's experimental 33-yard extra point Thursday in San Diego in the team's preseason opener.
"I was kind of surprised they lined up in the middle," Bailey said. "I figured most guys would spot it on the hash and kind of mess around with that. It's just one of those things where we're just going to have to deal with it the first two [preseason] games, and then obviously from there see what happens. I guess it's a good opportunity to practice 33-yard field goals is the way I'm looking at it.
"The whole principle of the matter, I think, is a little obscure," Bailey said. "If we're so good, I don't understand why that's a bad thing. I think you ask anybody that knows the game, it's not as easy as it looks. Yeah, a normal extra point is a 20-yard field goal, but I guarantee you of the 53 guys on the roster, there might be a handful that would be able to make that. It's definitely not as easy as it looks. If it does take hold and actually is adopted, you're going to see a lot of games, probably where it has a lot more impact on even decision-making as well as end-of-game situations."
