    Since the OT quarter is only 10 minutes long, should they:

    Play the entire quarter, no matter what? This means that the quarter won't end over a touchdown or safety. Even though the Steelers scored 21 points in 73 seconds, crazier things have happened before this game:

    The Steelers scored three touchdowns in 73 seconds versus the Texans

    It should be college rules. Current rules are the worst version yet.

    I'm OK with the rules for the most part as is. Besides, the Bears pissed their game away today.

    Not OK with the NFL TV rules forcing the broadcast to break away.

    It should still be 15 minutes to decrease chance of tie

    Changing to 10 minutes was dumb

    Why are we using a 4 year old game for reference here?

    I hate college overtime. I wish they'd go back to the first score wins thing. Luck is part of the game. If you don't get lucky, play better defense.

    Play a 10 minute quarter. The result is the result.

    I'd be ok with college rules if you don't start at the opp 25. I don't understand the idea that you start in fg range. Start at midfield and make teams earn a fg.

    Yeah I was going to say the 50, but there's a certain number of people that want their special teams for some reason so I was going to leave open the opportunity for discussion about that. I think that could create games that go to like 4 or 5 OTs somewhat regularly though. I think the 50 is the way to go.
