Q: Adam, I have only heard a little about it, but is the discussed kickoff reform a legit possibility?

-- Dave (Oregon)

A: There's been some talk about it in the competition committee, Dave, and we might one day see games in which kickoffs are eliminated or overhauled. But it doesn't seem to be a front-burner issue today. Excluding the replacement refs, the league usually is looking for ways to make the game safer. This could be one down the line.

Q: With Darrelle Revis out for the season, do you think the New York Jets can still make the playoffs?
