    Overtime Rules

    As a Saints fan I'm glad they won but personally do not like to see the outcome determined on a coin toss. It would have been interesting to see what happened if the Vikings would have had one last shot at the end. Maybe one day the Competition Committee will change these rules.

    Re: Overtime Rules

    That is the first time in playoff history that a game has gone into overtime and been won by the team who won the toss. 4 times a playoff game has gone into overtime and this is the only time I think they said on ESPN the team who won the toss won the game. So does it really determine the outcome and is this really what I heard?

    They were talking about conference championships. 4 conference championships have gone into overtime and the first 3 were won by the team that lost the overtime coin toss.

    We are also the first team to lose their last 3 games and make it to the Super Bowl.

    I would like to see each team guaranteed one possession in overtime.

    I like what Greeny said on Mike and Mike this morning. He wants to see the ruled changed to the first team to 6 wins. That means you have to drive the length of the field and score a TD or make 2 FG's and hold your opponent scoreless or to a FG as well.

    I like the rule better than the college system. Minnesota had a chance...they just couldn't capitalize.

    Really? College OT is awesome. And no more gimmicky than sudden death.

    You're kidding right? College OT is a joke, start at the opponents 25??? What arbitrary horse crap is that? College OT is the worst of all time as it stand now.

    Sudden death is the best by far, the Vikes had plenty of chances to stop the Saints, but they didnt capitalize.

    I couldn't disagree more. I'd much rather see both teams get a chance.

    Both teams had a chance. It's not perfect, but I'm with huss that college OT is goofy. Maybe each team gets a possession starting on their own 25 would be better, but that would extend the game too much.

    I think the NFL system is the best.

    Re: Overtime Rules

    The Vikes did have a chance in OT. The chance to play defense and special teams. They didn't do it good enough to win.

    I used to want the pro's to adopt the college OT but I have since changed my mind. #1 if you are in OT to begin with you haven't done enough to win. That's your problem. #2 The win is not being determined by a coin toss. Play some defense. Football is about offense, defense and special teams. Not just offense.

    Maybe, Maybe I could see going to the college OT if the ball doesn't start on the 25. I think if you go to this sort of thing you give both teams a chance but kickoff like normal. But that could really drag things on for a while. But then again I love football so MORE football isn't a problem for me, for people running a TV network it might be.

    They had a chance to play defense/special teams. They didn't do it good enough so they don't deserve to win.

    By both teams get a chance you mean if the first team doesn't score then the 2nd team plays it safe since they are basically already in field goal range?

    I wonder why more teams (err - any teams?) don't elect to play defense when they win the toss? I mean, defense is part of the game, why wouldn't you want to start with your defense out there?


    First to score wins means that the first team with the ball has a huge advantage.

    Is it any more arbitrary than flipping a coin? Isn't that the definition of arbitrary? A 50/50 guessing game?
