Eli is absolutely right - if you are going to ice the kicker, do it early enough that the kicker can't get a practice kick off

Interesting to also look at the XFL system.

No kicks, you go for 1 at the 2, go for 2 at the 5, go for 3 at the 10.

Cant remember exactly, but it was something like 60-70% for 1, 40% going for 2, 10% going for 3

If its simply about maximizing wins, taking the 3 each time, taking the most pts on offer, was actually the worst strategy. And even going for 2 was only used in certain situations to get back to the groups of 6, 12, 7, 14 game situations

In the NFL, the existence of a 2 pointer is an interesting dynamic/philosophy when scoring is almost always going in 7s, 10s, 14s. But as i said above, if the whole league was always going for 2, the nerds would then be champions for the 1 pat as maximizing your wins.
I miss the xfl

Favre when talking about some of his improvisation throws: "I tried things out during the game .... Well if I tried them in practice I'd have been in trouble" 😂
