Citing the argument that Interceptions are scored -5 points and other turnovers like Fumbles lost are scored at only -3 just doesn’t add up. A turnover is a turnover no matter how you look at it. It’s a change of possession forced by a single player. Wether its a QB, DB or a WR its a misplayed ball that leads to the change.
I am proposing as of 2010 Forced Fumbles, Interceptions and Fumble Recoveries will be worth 5 points. and subsequetly, Interceptions and Fumbles Lost will be scored -5 points.
This will effect your Defensive players points by an increase of about 15-20 points per season on average and negatively impact your Offensive players other than QB’s by roughly 10-15 points per year.
I feel it’s a good change that helps keep the lines even and consistent.
I am proposing this change to Mike and Todd and upon their feedback we will have a decision made within the coming weeks.
