That a trip
To the Super Bowl
On the flip
Of a coin.
Have allow it
To come down
To a case
But since it did,
I feel the need
To speak up.
Do you really want
Your NFC Champion
The better luck?
To come back.
Don’t you think
At least deserved
In a perfect world,
A full quarter
Better team win,
The coin toss…
Or maybe the Packers defense could have stopped the Seahawks’ first drive in overtime, Austin. Just saying.
Nevertheless, I suggest not a rules change to not a full quarter, but 7:30. And if it’s still tied, play on until somebody scores.
You were right when you said the lack of 1Q TDs in the red zone would haunt the Pack. That’s what did it in the end.
It sure was an exciting fourth quarter, though. Quite unlike the dang Patriots-Colts game right now. 😦
Regardless of why the game made it to OT, I just think that when the stakes are a trip to the Super Bowl, both teams should at least get one possession in OT…
just caught the last ( YAWN) 1/4 of the Indianapolis/ new England game. who is the guy ‘Brady” trouncing around for new England? god it looks worse than Mick Jagger on stage. And why does one guy( called the coach) get all the kudos when its very obvious there are heaps of other people calling the shots for each team. Why is the grand final ( oops Superbowl) being played in such a place as the stadium in Arizona. Why do you not just play it in Wisconsin or Wyoming or south Dakota???
Because they want the game played in nice weather, so snow and cold don’t influence the outcome.
sorry mark just read your comment about keep playing until someone scores.. Why do you not just have a kick off like in soccer or rugby. Is’t you r game long enufff???
Well, maybe instead of flipping a coin they could roll a die instead, and the teams could get possession based on whether it comes up odds or evens, then?
Just give both teams a shot with the ball. Look at the way college football handles OT…
No matter what, those last two minutes were the ride of the season.
Yes, the were. I was rooting for the Packers, so I am disappointed…
How about guessing a number between one and ten?
I like the idea of a set OT time to play. Maybe not a full quarter but half like Mark suggested.
Anything is better than one and done.
Thanks. Glad you liked it!
They COULD have played defense in overtime… I don’t think the rule should change for the playoffs (except for the obvious rule about the game not ending in a tie).
You don’t think both sides should get a shot? A baseball game doesn’t end in extra innings without the home team getting last licks…
Well they did alter the OT rules to allow that a few years back as long as the team with the ball doesn’t score a TD first or the other team get a safety. I don’t think they should mess with it. Defense is an equal part of the game. You wanna win, stop the other team, flip the field position, get the ball back. I like the rules as they are, personally.
I guess. I just want more football, so I say play another quarter. 🙂
