ITS FREAKIN' sudden death...

I don't see why it needed to be messed with... after all. You should win the game during regulation if you lose in OT then you deserved to lose.

I can live with the rules... these new rules... fine. But now there is talk that they needed to be changed AGAIN... to make it more fair.

FAIR!?!?! Why not give every team a SB trophy at the end of the year.

To have a rule in the playoffs that wasn't used during the regular season in which who made the playoffs is determined, is just horrible.

If you win in overtime, but wern't supposed to win the game at all, the other team gets a second chance to beat you, no matter what.

The Tim Tebow rule!

Euphoria, I hear you.
It stands. Owners met and decided on this.
I would have prefer the old rule to for all games.
OT=sudden death. Game over.
I am just throwing this out, possible reason for change...I don't know.
New rule makes sure teams don't go for OT rather than just risk it all and win or lose and play that last 30 sec. or minute. Risk it all there. Win or lose there.
With new PlayoffOT, even if you get a FG, game is not over.

Or perhaps, teams are in OT, then media, fans get to see a real, full, qrtr. of football.

I do not like OT. Never. What you said about teams winning if deserving or losing, then they did not deserve it anyway...these current Saints have done that OT over these past years. It is can be a win for either team. It is not good going to OT in any game.
