What's people's opinions now that we've seen it in action? (denver/Pitt game doesn't really count)</P>


If it takes that long to explain, it can't be the right answer. </P>

You understand it?

It is very simple to understand. In my opinion, I liked it the way it was before but i don't hate this new rule.

Just a possible way to add extra drama to OT playoff games, nothing more to me.

Score a TD first and you win

OR

make a stop then FG for the win

those are the rules :P

New rule makes it fun and exciting IMO, do they go for the TD or do they go for the field goal, I like it

I really liked it. To have this game end on one FG without giving the other team shot would have been bad.

New OT rules are great

Coaches will definitely have some tough decisions.... 1st team possession has the ball on the 5 yard line and it is 4th and inches.... Does the team want to kick the FG, kickoff and give the other team opportunity to beat them with a TD? It is a little bit weird.

I don't understand why its still not like college and h.s. rules. It's fair and a lot more exciting for fans, and its kind of like shoot outs in hockey. A few years ago players didn't even know overtime rules i.e. Donovan McNabb
