I say leave it. Defense is part of the team too, they need to step up and not let the offense score. Plain and simple. I however don't like it coming down to just a field goal. I don't know how they could change that though.

I think what he is saying is that the coin flip does determine the winner 60% of the time:
Quote:
the team winning the coin flip now wins 60 percent of the time
And the winner of the coin flip wins on the first drive 40% of the time:

Quote:
40-plus percent of the time, wins it on the first possession."
Definitely could have been stated better.

Maybe they should consider adding the human element to deciding who gets the ball first? Like the XFL did.

Or, not allow FG's in the 1st half or something to that effect.

Who knows. I'd rather see them get rid of the offense friendly rules so we can stop with all the knit-picking that constantly follows close games. 25 years ago, there was no bitching for weeks after.

Exactly. If the NFL farks this up by changing it, I'll watch curling from now on.

The NFC has won the coin toss 12 straight years in a row. We should change that if anything.

I agree with what you have said up to that point. I don't have a problem with the game coming down to a fg. Kickers are part of the team as well. If the defense allows the opponent into field goal range...and the game is won on a fg....thats the way it is.

Yeah, after the flip, if the NFC won the toss the Ref should declare "opposite day!"

I agree with that. But I just don't like the whole game being lost on a field goal in overtime. It bums my trip. I like the idea of not winning it on your first possession with a FG.

I disagree.

The best solution to this problem is to beat your opponent in the allotted 60 minutes. If you can't do that then...

...CALL IT.

On a side note, that could have been the best movie EVER if they just would have given it a frickin' ENDING!!!
