Has Peter King Bitched About the OT Rules Again Yet?
 
You know, since he went on and on this past postseason about how tragically unfair it was that Lord Manning never had an opportunity to get back on the field against the Bolts and how the OT rules needed to be changed pronto to prevent such an injustice from ever occurring again.

Considering that last night's game could very possibly have huge implications on playoff seedings/berths down the road, has he written another whinefest demanding that the Competition Committee change the OT rules to allow each team at least one possession?

No? Is that maybe because he doesn't have the Titans' balls on his chin? Something to ponder.... :scratchchin:

He tweeted about it last night:

"Overtime rules stink. Both teams need a possession. @michaelombardi. We can start the 09 season debating the overtime rules."

I've never really agreed with them either, but that is some excessive whining. Hell, we're only one game into the season... Can't change them mid year so why whine about it now?

I stand corrected, but I don't pay any attention to Twitter. However, he didn't make it an issue in the most current column he wrote, like he did last January.

Here's what he said today, with not a peep about how "unfair" the OT rules are:

Quote:

I'll forever wonder why Tennessee defensive coordinator Chuck Cecil called the dogs off late in the fourth quarter, with Pittsburgh driving to win. After Jevon Kearse demolished Ben Roethlisberger and left him reeling at the Tennessee 33 with six minutes left, the Steelers had a third-and-12 and were on the edge of field-goal range. One more strong rush, and the Titans could preserve a 10-7 lead and beat the Super Bowl champs. But Cecil called for a three-man rush, and Roethlisberger had enough time to throw for a 15-yard gain. A tie game soon followed, then a Steelers OT win. I can hear Tennessee fans everywhere saying this morning: "Damn pree-vent defense. All it did was prevent us from winning.''

Here's what he said last January:

Quote:

The overtime rule continues to be the dumbest, stupidest, most indefensible rule the NFL has on its books. Giving a coin flip more power than Tony Soprano has now deprived us of a satisfactory ending to two pivotal games this year -- Jets-Patriots in Week 11, when the Patriots and 401-yard passer Matt Cassel never saw the ball in overtime after a heroic fourth-quarter comeback, and Colts-Chargers, when we didn't get to see the NFL MVP even play in the fifth quarter because it was a one-possession overtime.

I was talking to a titan fan friend of mine and we came to the conclusion that they should play another 15 minutes of football and if there is no winner by the end of it, then it's a tie.

I like that idea.

Hey....they had a chance to be in the game with their defense. You all know if we had lost the toss, we'd be expect our D to win that game for us, one way or another. And they are more than capable of doing it.

They let Ben waltz all the way down that field.......to the winner goes the spoils.

I don't particularly like the OT scenarios either, but I despise the word 'tie' even more.

I prefer the college system myself.

The Pro seems to moreso leave it chance on whether or not you've won the coin toss. And this is me,speaking moreso as a guy who's looking for entertaining games to watch, not strictly as a Browns fan.

When I saw the Steelers had won it, I knew right away what was going to happen.

Roethlisberger was going to lead a drive down field with relative ease because the Titans were playing the Conservative Zone/Prevent Defense, something he THRIVES off of. Get it down to the 20 and win the game via Field Goal. A very, very, very anti-climatic ending.

I propose that both teams get to start at the 50, like a more challenging version of the aforementioned college rules. After a couple of OT'S and the game isn't settle, a forced two point conversation is made mandatory just like the college rules.

I also think the "One-foot in bounds" rule should be imported into the pros and the playoff system should be exported into the NCAA. ;).

Wouldn't matter, since Braylon Edwards would have to learn to not drop passes.... zing! I kid I kid.
