Can't have ties in the playoffs.




I know that. In the playoffs you would play another period. No sudden death. I hate sudden death. :-P

No way they would ever do that. Think of the injury factor alone.

I hate that in the NFL a 60 minute game can come down to a coin toss, a few 1st downs, and a FG, without the other team ever having the ball.

I think the NFL should keep their same exact system but make 1 change. Make it a rule that each team gets a least 1 possession in OT. If the team that has the 1st possession scores a FG or a TD, the other team would have one possession to either win or tie. If the team that has the 1st possession doesn't score, the other team takes over and it's now sudden death. If both teams tie on their 1st possessions, it's now sudden death. If the team that has the 1st possession scores a TD, the other team must score a TD for the game to continue. I just think it isn't fair for the team that loses the coin toss to sometimes not even touch the ball in OT. This way the coin toss can't decide the game.

I think the college OT system is a joke for one reason. I think giving the teams the ball already in FG range is stupid. If they moved the ball way back to start the OT drives I think their system would be much better. I wouldn't want this type of system in the NFL.


I completely agree with this logic. Allow each team to have it once after the coin flip. If it's still a tie after those possessions, then make it sudden death. Seems logical to me.

What do you do if there is still at tie after two more quarters though? there has to be some kind of back up plan.

College overtime is superior, but would be much better if each team actually had to put together a drive, starting form the 50, rather than at the 25 when you are already is field goal range.

I like the extra full period. If tied after that then go to the college rule. This would be fairly similar to hockey or soccer where they play extra time and if no one still comes out ahead, then it becomes a shootout.

I dont like taking injury consideration into the discussion. These are "supposed" to be tough guys playing a tough sport who practice this game for hours every week with very limited injuries, and are much more protected today than they ever were in the past.

Why don't they just have a FG kicking contest to decide a 75 minute game then.

I dont recall saying that the NFL should go to a shootout. Take another look.
