DENVER (AP) - Each of the eight teams still standing in the NFL playoffs can thank their special teams for helping to get them there. It's part of any winning formula.
That's just one reason players remain upset that Commissioner Roger Goodell has floated the idea of abolishing kickoffs altogether.
Baltimore Ravens return specialist Jacoby Jones returned two kickoffs for touchdowns this season. He said if the league gets rid of the electrifying plays, ``I'm going to retire. I will go (ballistic).''
The idea is only a suggestion, one Goodell says the league will consider in the offseason for safety reasons, but players are vehemently opposed to such a radical change.
Denver Broncos punter Britton Colquitt wonders what announcers would say instead of ``Stay tuned for kickoff.''
