Re: Overtime Rules

Both offenses deserve a chance, plain and simple

They have 4 quarters with equal opportunities. Whatever a team does to screw themselves over, or to get the job done and win is decided by the play on the field. When only one team gets the ball in overtime, we're left to assume that because they scored a touchdown the other team somehow couldn't have.

Both teams should be put to the same test, just like the first 4 quarters.

Hey man, I had just finished making a point, and you followed it up perfectly. It's a tired old mentality to say "well if they can't keep them out of the end zone, they don't deserve to be there".

So how about all the touchdowns these teams have given up all year long? I guess they shouldn't have been allowed in, by that logic. Just because you give up a touchdown, the other defense gets a pass? It's not equal. It's not about feeling sorry for the defense that gives up the touchdown, it's about making both teams prove it, and not having a flip of luck give one team a huge advantage.

That's not to take away from teams who win on the first possession. They are winning by the rules that are applied. But the rules really are dumb, and this is coming from someone who has seen his team lose and win by this format.

If I had a nickel for every time I heard that, the NFL would fine and suspend me.

Re: Overtime Rules

I never understood people who don't like the college overtime rule. I love it. Yeah, it's nerve racking, but, damn is it exciting!

They already say that if the team with the first offensive possession doesn't score a touchdown, it's sudden death if it's tied after each have a possession. Okay, just change that to each team gets the ball once and it's sudden death if it's tied after that. Not really a big change.

I will never forget hearing Peter King lament that it was a shame that Brett Favre didn't get a chance with the ball.

I sent him an e-mail and asked him if he would have had felt the same if the Vikings had won without the Saints and Brees getting a possession.

I didn't get a reply.

And there's always "that guy" who thinks his opinion is the only one that is right and then gives crap to another person with a different one.

A very simple solution to the issue! I like it!
