EDIT: Just read the article... I guess they are thinking the same about safety.

As long as they put 12 players on the field, otherwise NO.
What I think they should do is eliminate illegal formations except for having 5 lineman on the line.
Also have multiple players in motion and holding on run plays only five yards.
college rules for the passing game.
what are those?

The Ralph couldn't add 35 more feet of room. The players in the sidelineS would be 5 rows deep into the stands.
Not gonna happen.

My thought also....
Or maybe build a new stadium?
I think Foxboro (not sure) has a stairway downstairs right off the field. That's a lot of changes for a weak ass 35 feet for no reason. The game is fine the way it is.

About the best the NFL could do, is male it mandatory that any new stadiums be built with additional room for these types of future possibilities. Of course, it would take 30 years to make this all happen anyway.

To do so would be Draconian anyways. That's why it would never happen.
Now if you tried selling that you would widen the field by 2 yards (one yard on each sideline), you might find it more feasible to sell to players and fans and also you wouldn't have problems accommodating the new field dimensions in existing stadiums.
It doesn't seem like much but we're talking about and additional 2160 square feet. In a game of inches.
I've often thought that if the NHL wanted to increase scoring that they could simply increase the size of the goal by just a few inches.
I believe the extra room would have a significant effect on the game, more than most people would believe.
