Default (Peter) King furious about NFL overtime rules

Quote:
SI.com's Peter King came on without any sleep today and had some very strong takes ...

-- King thinks the current overtime system in the NFL is completely unfair. Too often the coin flip determines the winner and that makes no sense. King says the owners won't change the rules, but they're totally wrong.

-- Here is the system Peter wants. Each team gets to the ball one time. If one team scores, the other team has to get an offensive possession. Not like college, with the ball starting at the 35, but like a normal game.

-- King doesn't understand what Boston College coach Jeff Jagodzinski is doing. He will be one of 12 candidates to talk to the Jets. It's like the lottery. King thinks that if he's fired, he's still in a decent spot and can go back to the NFL. King and Dan think college athletic directors are fighting back. Dan thinks if a coach is under contract, he shouldn't be able to go anywhere.

-- Peter and Dan discussed the Falcons' offensive line had a tell and the Cardinals knew what play was coming. Arizona was getting off the ball immediately because its defenders were reading the Falcons center's butt.

-- King says LaDainian Tomlinson isn't the same back he was a few years ago and Darren Sproles is better than him right now even if L.T. can go.

-- King said Chargers punter Mike Scifres made the difference on Saturday. Peyton Manning never had good field position.

-- King thinks the Colts need more depth on the offensive line and a playmaking linebacker to take the next step. But he thinks Manning still could win another Super Bowl.

-- Dan asked King if he could change his MVP vote, would he pick Ed Reed over Manning? King told Dan he was crazy. There is no way he'd change his vote.

Overtime rule change, anyone? If so what would be the most "fair" rule?

Peter King sounds like a whiny douche - sobbing over Peyton missing the playoffs?

Life isn't fair

Ditka said it best

If you lose the toss, and your defense can't stop the other team from scoring, you didn't deserve to win the game in the first place.


If you want it "fair" why not move all the games to all neutral fields since teams playing at home get an "unfair" homefield 3 pt advantage.

I disagree. I think it's kind of arbitrary. I like the college system, and I sat through two college OT games this year. Both were REALLY exciting.

Didn't see King bitching about the unfairness of the OT rules when we lost the coin toss to the Ratbirds in our first game against them this season which we wound up winning anyway. But when one of the two fairhaired golden boys of the NFL (P. Manning and Brady) wind up being denied the chance to advance in the playoffs because of it, all of a sudden it's "unfair."

Like Killer mentioned, I also agree with Ditka - you lose the toss in OT, your D needs to go out there and stop them - again, kinda like we did against the Ratbirds in the first game against them this year.

Do the college system except start at the 50 yard line and go from there.

I have never liked the NFL over time rule. I love Mike Ditka but when did he or any other coach choose not to receive the kick off and instead play defense.

Placing the ball on the 50 yard line or even the offensive team's 40 yard line will certainly make for an exciting overtime period. Each team has an opportunity to play both offense and defense.

When we lose an overtime game as we certainly have (Turkey Day ) because we never got the ball is terrible empty feeling.

can someone please tell king to shut up..lol

if peyton was in zone, then the colts would have blown the bolts out and we wouldnt even had to worry about overtime. and if the colts would have had a good defense instead of relaying on peyton's arm to win games they wouldnt have been in that situation....

i don't like the system. i think both O's and D's , should get a shot in OT. as was said, give them the ball at the fifty, put 3 minutes on the clock, 1 timeout.
