The NFL’s competition committee, of which thankfully Matt Millen is no longer part, is taking a look at the always contentious overtime structure this week. We don’t much mind the way things are handled now, but there is some room for improvement. Here now are some wholesale alternatives or slight tweaks of the currents rules for determining the winner of a game that cannot be decided in regulation.
Best rape joke wins
Coin toss replaced by game of War.
Winner is the team Simmons gambled on (because that was the right play)
Victor determined by Cleatus the Robot
Final Jeopardy. And the category is Opera.
Teams have to climb the Aggro Crag
Have Peter King judge which team is the “clutchiest”
Mascots fight to the death
BEST FACKIN’ FANS WINS!
Hide-and-seek on stadium concourse.
Quarterback pie eating contest
Red Rover exclusively with special teams players
Overtime decided by Madden simulation
Head Coach vs. Head Coach in a 100 yard dash
Cheerleader Jell-0 wrestling (Giants and Steelers lose automatically)
Most Super Bowl titles wins (Steelers win automatically!)
Roshambo for it
