NFL Competition Committee to take a look at current overtime format

As a football fan you either love or hate the current overtime format. There’s really not much of a way around it, as if your team loses a lot of times you hear about how OT is unfair, and then again if your team wins it’s fine as is. Finally the NFL has decided enough is enough, and in late March the competition committee will take a look at the rule of OT according to Peter King of SI who twitted about it earlier today:

Here’s a stunner: NFL Competition Committee will consider a “modified sudden death” rule at NFL Meetings in late March.

I personally feel it is just fine as is. If a team loses the toss and can’t stop the opposing team, so be it. Sure it’s tough to watch your team battle for three hours and then lose after they lose a coin toss and can’t stop the opposing offense, but it’s not like they don’t have the chance to do it.

This may be just posturing by the league to try and settle down those that seem to complain about it after every OT game that is own on the first possession. To me, it’s a non-issue, and if they crack and go with the college rules they are just bowing down to those whiners that complain about it all season after overtime games.
