Actually I'm pretty sure the circumstances of that game would be exactly the same with the new rules. I think that if the first team with possession scores a TD they win. The other team only gets the ball in the case of a FG being kicked by the first team.

So we leave a system in place that grants the team winning a chance event a statistically huge advantage, purely on the outside chance that somewhere between 0.5% and 2% of games will have thrilling finishes? That logic completely eludes me. It's the functional equivalent of deciding overtime by lottery.

My opinion of the sudden-death system is not affected by who is playing or by who wins. When I am watching two teams I care nothing about, I am just as dissatisfied when one of the teams drives down the field for a field goal to end the game as I am disappointed when the Packers lose in similar fashion. Similarly, when the Packers kick a field goal win in overtime, I am rarely thrilled at the finish -- I find planned field goals boring and anticlimactic. I'm more just relieved they managed to pull it off and didn't get screwed by some quirk in the game. I want to feel like the team who won actually outplayed their opponent, not that they happened to profit from a lucky flip of the coin.

I don't get much, if any, pleasure out of watching overtime in the NFL. Mostly I am just a nervous wreck, wincing at every aggressive play that might go wrong, and totally wrung out (and more often than not, feeling let down) when it ends.

Zero2Cool (3h) : Hi 😊😉
TheKanataThrilla (8h) : I guess I should have did a refresh when I walked away from the computer.
TheKanataThrilla (8h) : Peters is 25 with one year left on his contract at just over $3M
Zero2Cool (10h) : Mel Kiper sticks with Marcus Davenport to GB in 2nd mock
Zero2Cool (11h) : As for Marcus Peters, how old is he an what's his contract years left?
Zero2Cool (11h) : Packers got tired of Sitton's antics.
Zero2Cool (11h) : Sitton was released not because of play or salary, but personality. He will not be re-signed.
TheKanataThrilla (11h) : If we are planning on possibly cutting Cobb I can see the 2nd round pick. A second round pick for Peters is a pretty good deal.
Smokey (13h) : I'd offer Cobb + a 3rd round pick + a 6th round pick in 2019 for the CB Peters from KC.
TheKanataThrilla (13h) : I guess that is a highter round pick
TheKanataThrilla (13h) : Suggestion was a 2nd round pick. I would want a lower round pick. I think that is too much. A 3rd or 4th seems about right.
Smokey (13h) : Cobb and WHAT PICK ?
TheKanataThrilla (15h) : A suggestion I saw was a trade of Cobb and a Pick for Peters. I think that would be a great move.
Smokey (17h) : Sitton was drafted be GB in 2008, not a young man at this point, but still is a "bear" of a man.
Cheesey (21-Feb) : Sitton? Maybe if the price is right.
Cheesey (21-Feb) : I doubt the Packers would try to resign Sutton. But who knows? If the price is right?
Zero2Cool (20-Feb) : Bears declining option on Josh Sitton. He'll be Free Agent.
Zero2Cool (20-Feb) : Chiefs CB Marcus Peters trade rumors -- come to Packers!
