              I can throw a baseball 65mph with my skinny noodle arms.. 60yard fieldgoal requirements, according to calculations, is 87 yards. Legs are far stronger than arms. As well as you can kick a football much further than a baseball. With that math in mind 100 yard field goal is probably possible

                              Um, no. It's not just the point of impact & the speed of the kick: the mass of the kicker's body & leg, which translates to the point of impact, figures into it as well. Harrison is a big boy. You could hit that ball with a feather at 1000 mph, & the ball would just fall over.

                                Why 50 and 60 yard FGs are with the same amount of pts as all other FG attempts is beyond me....

                                50yds = 4 pts and 60 = 5 pts. Completely changes the strategy of the game.

                                Or at least just make 60 yds worth 5 pts.

                                        with the current rules it may happen if a team was left with no time on the clock and fair caught the ball allowing them a field goal as a free kick with time expired.

I remember that even on Madden 95' football if you played with the Kansas City Chiefs you would never make a field goal even game world. 😂

Same as a penalty kick with ball standing still and kicker can set himself exactly where to run on ball... same as a place kicker, just an FYI.... Host dude, kickers DONT wear hardly ANY pads these days so how can you say soccer players and place kickers are different when technically, soccer players are way better cause our legs are tired and we still kick further than place kickers...Do your sports history before comparing soccer and football kickers...
