Default The new OT rules

Yet another example to me of why the NFL should abandon their sudden death overtime rule and embrace something like the Kansas Plan used at the high school and college levels. Denver wins the OT coin toss and receives the opening kick. Tebow then throws an 80-yard bomb, the Broncos score on the play, and the Steelers aren't even given a chance to answer.

Either way, old rule we lose, new rule we lose

But I have always felt both teams need to get a possesion just like college.

Believe it or not, the rules are not in place to help the steelers win.

Also, if the steelers win the coin toss this thread never sees a steelers' forum.

Are you saying that a team deserves a chance to win after that? Because that's stupid.

No we were given a full 60 minute regulation game to win the game. Can't do that? Then sudden death it is. Also we were given a chance... who gets the ball first is decided in the fairest way possible.... a coin toss. Even so, they have the ball first, so what... its still fair in that we get 11 men to line up accross from their offense. It's called a defense. They get paid a ton of money because they specialize in stopping the offense. Still fair.

Sorry the sudden death rule made perfect sense and when ever people whine about it drives me crazy. So much that I had to register and post this. The new rule really bothers me.

But like the guy before me said..l just don't give up the 80 yard play on the first place.

I dont think anyone is whining, although Tebow whined every time someone touched him, lol

Just a rule discussion not an outcome discussion.

Well maybe blackout is whining, lol. But we lost, and it never shouldve came to ot we should won easily. We didnt, we sucked.

BUT i like college rules lol
