  3. In light of how the Packers-Cardinals Divisional Playoff game finished on Saturday night, there are a couple of rule changes I would make: The first is one I've long said should be done, that being in the final 2:00 of each half and overtime (except odd-numbered OTs during the postseason), the clock stops on a first down to move the chains as is done at all times in college football. It would only add a minute or two to a game at the most. When a situation happens that a team scores on the final play of regulation (as what happened in Packers-Cardinals), the other team automatically gets the ball to start overtime (no coin toss in that scenario), however, the OT rules for such situations ONLY would be modified to where if a team scores a TD (as the Cardinals did to win the game here), the other team gets a chance to answer with a TD. If they do that and the game is tied, the game then reverts to what would normally be the first possession of OT where if the team then getting the ball had to score a TD to win, whereas kicking a field goal gives the other team a chance to tie with a FG or win with a TD (if that team kicks a FG, the game then goes to sudden death). This would also be the case where the team with the ball first fails to score where it would go to the first possession of OT rules, then if that team failed to score, then goes to sudden death. If in this situation ONLY the team playing defense first returns a turnover for a TD, the team that was on offense gets one more possession to tie and if they do the game then goes into sudden death. If the defense gets a safety, then that team gets the ball and a TD with an extra point wins the game right there, otherwise the other team gets one more chance to answer. That to me would be more so the casual fan does not get a bitter taste because they think a team didn't have a fair shot as it's the casual fan that drives the TV ratings.

  7. I'm sure the NFL breathed a big sigh of relief they beat the Bengals on Sunday night: I'm sure the NFL now hopes they beat both the Vikings and Packers in their games against them (Vikings in the Week 14 Thursday nighter, Packers in Week 16, both at home) and otherwise take care of business so they have the #2 seed in the NFC wrapped up before the final week of the season because of a potential issue if they are in a position if they can still be the #3 seed going into New Year's weekend: The Cardinals home (University of Phoenix Stadium) is the site of the College Football National Championship Game on Monday, January 11. I would presume the entire weekend of January 9-10 would be needed to have everything in place for that game, especially since unlike in the NFL, you likely will have fans of the two schools in that game arriving as early as Friday 1/8, and in some cases in RVs looking to use the parking lots for 3-4 days (something unique to College Football that is NOT the case with the NFL). IF CFB Playoff officials insist on having that Saturday and Sunday to have everything in order for the Championship on Monday 1/11, then if the Cardinals wind up with the #3 seed and having to play at home in the Wild Card round, the NFL may have to have the Cardinals play such a game on FRIDAY, January 8 (and if so, most likely that being ESPN/ABC’s playoff game since ESPN would be there anyway for the CFB Championship) so the CFB Playoff committee gets the weekend to set up the Cardinals home field for the CFB Championship game that Monday. If the NFL were forced to have that playoff game on Friday 1/8, it could result in the Cardinals’ final regular season game (at home against the Seahawks) and that of ANY potential first-round playoff opponents being moved to SATURDAY, January 2. While I’m sure the NFL made provisions for this and worked deals out ahead of time to avoid such a scenario, if the CFB Playoff committee insists on a Wild Card game being played Friday 1/8 so the stadium can be readied to their liking for the Championship Game Monday 1/11, then I think the NFL may be forced to kowtow to the CFB Playoff Committee so as not to upset elected officials in parts of the country where college football is actually bigger than the NFL. The NFL earlier this year I believe learned a lesson when it said if the playoffs are expanded to add a third wild card they wanted a Monday night playoff game the CFB Playoff committee made it clear they would fight the NFL on that as I believe elected officials, particularly where college football trumps the NFL could very well go as far as to introduce legislation that would give the CFB Committee preference on dates for the National Semifinals and Championship game, something I'm sure the NFL wants to avoid at all costs.
