    They are big boys. They should be able to handle a few extra minutes.

    5 is a few. 15 is 25% more work than they are conditioned for.

    It makes no sense to make one rule for the postseason and another for the regular season. You are essentially saying our OT rules are flawed so we need to improve them for the postseason but are good enough for the regular season which decides who goes to the postseason. To me you either leave the rule alone or change it for both the regular and postseason. Half changing the rule makes no sense.

    Apparently there will be another chance to vote on passing the rule for the entire season later on this year, I thought Mort said it was around May sometime.

    So what if the team #1 has the ball, throws an interception, team #2 runs it back 20-30 yards, and fumbles the ball back. Then team #1 kicks a FG.

    Did team #2 "possess" the ball? Do they get another chance?

    Pay attention to the open sky

    Good question. I'd think they would because I'm guessing the intent is to get the offense to have a shot at scoring.

    Good point but keep in mind we already have differing rules. In the post season you can't have a tie but you can in the regular season. Donovan McNabb recently learned this...
