What about San Fran now? That also should be interesting.

they signed someone pretty awful didn't they???

it's amazing how a franchise can go from Joe Moe to Young to even Garcia and now can't find a guy who can throw the ball 15 yards for a decade!

Yep, saw that the other day... Good luck with that Arizona. Lmao.

IMO Porter put some teeth into a pretty tame defense while he was there. I know he had problems with the coaching staff, but I thought Porter had a pretty successful stay with the Fins. Arizona just seems to be reverting back to its proud tradition of mediocrity.

According to NFL.com as well as ESPN.com the NFL owners approved the new OT rules *FOR POST SEASON ONLY*....they will be as stated:

The team winning the coin toss will get possession and will win if a TD is scored on that possession. However, if a FG is scored the opponent will then get possession. If that team scores a TD the game is over and they win, if they score a FG then possession changes once more and the next team to score, by any means will be the winner. If the game is tied at the end of the initial overtime then a new OT will presume with the same rules.

Apparently they still have time to initiate the rules for this season and will even discuss adding this format (minus the multiple OT's) for the regular season as well when owners meet again in May...

interesting to say the least..means this past SB could've been different with the Saints pulling out the OT victory on a first possession FG during the NFC championship...

Jackers!!!! Talk about overreaction.

I don't see the problem in a playoff game, after the coin toss its typically anti-climatic at this point.

I'm sick and tired of this fvcking league re-writing ALL the rules to sh!t on defenses and make it as much arena football outdoors as possible... it's NOT BROKEN LEAVE THE GODDAMN THING ALONE!!!!!

Was it anti-climatic when Aaron Rodgers got mauled and it became 6 points???

Can we start betting on how many times we see Rex Ryan eating during team meetings?

That basically confirms the Jets will suck this year. The Woody Johnson distractions FROM football in an effort to sell seat licenses.

I wish they'd spend this time USEFULLY and do something like hammer out a deal with the goddamn players instead of making idiot changes that are NOT NEEDED :rant:

I agree, I always LOVED Sudden Death exactly the way it was.

But unfortunately, anyone paying half-attention could see changes coming eventually. Too many people always complaining when their team lost in OT. Including some coaches.

And now that the rule has changed a little, the floodgates have opened. I can almost guarantee the league will make further changes down the road.

You should hear some of these callers on the sports-talk shows, calling in with their crackpot ideas on how to make OT even "better." All of their ideas involve extending the game even more, like another full quarter. And then, if it's still tied, maybe a five-minute extra period on top of that!

...

Hey, I have a great idea! If the game is tied after regulation, want not immediately play another full game? After all, that would the fairest solution!!

Where does Donovan McNabb end up???

I'd guess Buffalo, San Fran would make sense but I can see Phily wanting him out of the NFC

If Phily's idiot enough to think the Dog Show is an actual NFL starting QB though.... good luck with that.....

(not to be racist but the best QB on that team is the white guy :P)

Kolb????? If we didn't have Flacco developing I would take McNabb in a heartbeat. The Eagles have a pretty weak O-Line, below average WR corps, no TE, yet he still gets the offense going. I agree Vick is a joke as a passer. I think San Fran wins the West if McNabb goes there with that up & coming D.

Looks like I'm a little late to this rodeo, but here's my take on the OT change: it really doesn't change much. The only way it's different is if the team with first possession kicks a field goal. Other than that, it's still sudden death exactly the same way it's always been.

I personally hated old OT. To me, it was as much real football as a shootout is real hockey. An above-average kick return, two or three first downs and you can trot out the guy who's barely even a football player to decide the game. That's so lame that it hurts. At least a shootout is exciting. But whatever, either one is acceptable for the regular season. At least this rule change makes it slightly less lame for the playoffs.

I was more in favor of a radical change, like making it the first team to score six points wins. Two field goals or one touchdown. Wanna win a playoff football game? Earn it by being a better football team. Not some namby pamby field goal kicker contest. Might as well be a breakaway contest.

Go back and look at the percentage of big field goals in OT and late 4th Quarter that were MISSED by kickers this year, and you'll see you didn't need the change.... the biggest problem with it was obsessively conservative coaches that got to the 30 yard line and ran 3 dive plays assuming a 47 yard FG was a given when it's NOT

And well don't like a long return, play better special teams right?? That's part of the game too... what if the guy runs the kick back for a TD? "oh that's not fair either" right???

I was already in a pissy mood at this, but last night's adding to it :P

wanna see what a shootout in football looks like?? Watch the moronic college football OT!!!
