  1. Games rarely tie, but I've seen OT games go past 10 mins relatively often, especially since the rule changes of recent years. There are going to be a lot more ties deciding the standings. Also, this would seem to undermine the purpose of what they've been going for with recent rule changes to give each team a more equal opportunity. Now with the period only ten minutes long, the receiving team can much more easily play the clock and score a TD or FG with very little time remaining for the other team. Honestly, I just wish they'd go back to sudden death.
  2. Changing overtime some more, ugh....
  3. Because he exercised his first amendment right, duh!
  4. Football is inherently not safe. If we want everyone to be safe on the field, then let's just dress everyone in bubble wrap and make all hitting illegal. I understand making a few tweaks here and there to make things like head injuries less common and less serious, but we're going down the slippery slope to fundamentally changing any and every aspect of the game to make it "safe." There are plenty of other "safe" sports out there that people can play if they don't like the risks associated with football.
  5. Yay, more rules..
  6. College OT is a joke.
  7. Hey, we agree on something!!!! Of all games, too, this is probably the most absurd one to making this argument for. Atlanta led by 25 points in a game where no team has ever come back from more than 10 down. They had plenty of chances to close this one out. They earned this loss.
  8. It's not about punishing the team. It's about telling players where the best interest of their health lies. These guys play a game that often results in lifelong medical ailments, even for those who have short careers. The NFLPA is essentially saying "work wherever you want, but we don't recommend working for this particular franchise because of the higher risk to your long-term health." Publicly, they're using the only leverage they have to try to apply pressure to the state to not pass legislation that degrades the quality of care players can receive for medical issues relating to their profession, which is a big source of revenue for the state and city of Chicago. This is how people exercise influence in a free society, rather than being beholden to the financial whims of politicians and corporate executives who see people's health in terms of nothing but dollar signs.
  9. Pittsburgh D looks tired and disoriented.
  10. From the Pats 40 yard-line on third and ten, Pittsburgh should've played that as four down-territory. They should've tried to get at least 5 yards on third to gain the 35-yard line and either try to convert or kick a long FG.
  11. Wally gonna Wally...
  12. I don't think he's a bad guy, but I think he's probably conceited and not a great team leader just based off of that clip, whereas before I figured he was probably a pretty humble dude, being a 6th-round pick and all, and a leader in the lockerroom. Just saying that he seems to be more of a primadonna than I realized.
  13. I thought that video was cringeworthy. I kinda thought Brown was a humble guy, but after watching a video of nearly 20 mins in length in which he mostly just smiles at the camera and preens his hair, can you look like any more of a narcissist? All the while, your coach is giving advice to the team after a big playoff win before an upcoming championship game, and it's like he's (and a number of others) are totally oblivious to what's going on. Could he be have been any less of a leader? In my experience just playing in middle and high school, when the coach is talking to the players in the lockerroom, the players should be gathered around listening. Isn't this the NFL? This video certainly changed my impression of what kind of a person and teammate Brown is.
  14. Lol, well, I'll be rooting for the NFC team this year in the Super Bowl...
