    I just heard on OTL that McNabb asked a ref if he had another OT, and the ref told him he did.
    The fucking ref didn't know the rules.
    This is pathetic.

    While we are on the topic of OT.
    Thoughts on changing the rules?

    I have thought for the longest time that the NFL should adopt the College format...or atleast something similar. Like when a team scores, atleast allow the other to receive a kickoff and have thier own possession. The length of games and endurance would be in question...but I simply feel if both teams earn a overtime then both should equally have a shot at it. Most teams don't even get the chance to touch the ball in OT.

    Good point. Although if your D is good, they can stop the O and get a chance. But I remember a game this year (I think) where on the first play of overtime, Favre threw a LONG pass which was caught and run in for a TD. That was amazing! The D only had one chance to stop that drive, and they missed it.

    Is it any surprise that in a league hundreds of players that could coast through school due to their athletic abilities, a couple would be morans?

    53% of the teams that win the coin toss win the game on the first drive. No big deal.

    The NFL has said once this number goes over 50% they would consider a change. Regardless, I think they have relied on the stats too much on this topic. Stats are for the players and contract negot.s...rules are for the game. It should be changed for reasons of fairness, common sense and equality. I'm not saying thier is an exact solution and my suggestions are the correct ones. Decide on a rule that makes sense and to hell with how the stats playout in regards to a rule, be it old or new.

    Thats kinda my point...be it one play or multiple plays, good or bad, only one defense or offense for that matter was displayed. Each teams offensive and defensive units should atleast see the field once and have a say in OT, just like they have done it for the previous 60 min.s.

    Word, they should follow the college format only in the sense that both teams get a chance on offense. Make them kickoff (or just have the ball at their 20) and make them drive to score. Whoever has the most points out of the set of possessions wins.

    I said "this year (I think)". It may have been last year, and thus GB/Denver. I personally don't even remember who the opponent was, just the throw from Favre.

    Yeah I think Ack is referring to the Packers-Broncos game last year. I remember watching that game and said to myself, "So that's how you win overtime games? Awesome."
