But this ending is the perfect counter-argument to those who want to change the OT system.
IND was so bad on defense and they practically gave the game to SD with those penalties. They didn't deserve to get the ball back.
Indy's team is built around a huge high-scoring offense. While that game wasn't a shootout, in any shootout they have a huge advantage. Why should they be at a disadvantage based on how their team is built?
That was their decision to build their team that way.
But there are 3 facets to any football game (OF, DEF, and ST) and you need to be able to play all 3.
So you're saying that they should have built there team differently based on what the overtime rules happen to be?
And also, that's how SD is built as well. The fact is, if Indy had gotten the ball they would have had the same advantage. The coin toss should not mean this much.
