overtime

Postby DaKnife » Sun Nov 10, 2002 8:03 am

does anyyone besides me think they should go from a sudden death overtime to a full quarter of play?
I am tired of seeing games go to ot, just to find that the team that wins the toss, wins the game on the first posession, most of the time the team that loses the toss, doesn't ever touch the ball in ot....

Unless we happen to be talking Atlanta vs. Pittsburgh. :-D

Seriously, though, I see your point. There have been lots of suggestions to improve this, but nothing that's stuck...

The steelers game would not have mattered, nobody scored, I am saying what if steelers lost toss and falcs get a field goal on their first posession... steelers never get to touch the ball in ot !!! bull !!!

ot should play 1 full quarter....period
just think if the nba or mlb were sudden death.. !!

A full quarter of football in no way compares to an inning or period in ANY other sport.I feel a college type overtime could be more appropriate,giving equal opportunities to win the game.

TIES SUCK!!!What are the rules in the play-offs if this situation should arrise?A winner should be decided in every football game played.

In the playoffs, I believe play continues in fifteen-minute quarters until a team scores. If the Steelers-Falcons game had been a playoff contest, it might have taken a while the way things were going in overtime... :-)

the only problrm with giving both sides a shot in OT is that if one team kicks a FG then the other team gets a chance to tie or win with a TD.... the second team can play 4 down ball which gives them a huge advantage because the first team would get a FG and to be able to use 4 downs to simply get into FG range isnt that difficult to do compared to the first team doing it with 3 downs

i just think it should stay the same. it might be more entertaining the other ways but in increases chances of injury to players... when they are fatigued they tend to get hurt easier. also its hard enough for players to bash it out for 4 quarters but five every OT game would kill them because if you think about it the bills had 3 OT games out of their first four or five and if had played 5 full quarters in all of those they would have nearly zero chance at winning the next few.

anyway plus fair is fair in my mind and a coin toss is as fair as it gets:
50-50 all the way

unless of course you're using a two headed coin! i wouldn't put it past those dirty refs....<grumble grumble>...I like the idea of putting the college OT rules into effect in the nfl. I would rather see both teams have a shot vs the luck of the toss...Let the best team win, not the luckiest!!!
