NFL changes overtime format for playoff games
Team winning coin toss must score touchdown to win in sudden death

Honestly, I'm not liking it.  I think it should either be sudden death or a full OT quarter.  Anything else makes it look almost as ridiculous as OT in college football.

AMEN!!!!!! I hate gimicky rules

A full 15:00 is the only thing I've heard that makes more sense than what we got, but players are already so concerned about wear and tear on their bodies... I doubt they'd support a mandatory quarter when 5:00 might be plenty to settle it.

Limiting it to two possessions could help that.  I'm a big fan of, "Defense is part of the game", and so one team getting an offensive possession and not having to defend is kind of lame I think.  I like the direction they took, I just don't think it was enough.  I also find it odd to only do this during the playoffs...  Why not test it when the games don't count as much (or at all)?

Santonio Holmes has (reportedly) tested positive for a controlled substance...

And other news coming out, at least locally tonight, is he's been traded to the NY Jets. 

Hmmm...  Looks like the Steelers MIGHT be looking for a young receiver.

I am happy with the trade and dont mind the 4 game suspension. They didnt have to give up much to get him and they needed another good WR.

They blew up Texas Stadium on Sunday....

Insert "Cowboys collapse early" or "Cowboys choke on more than Dust" Joke here....

I am hoping that something exciting happens in Free Agency or the Draft or it is going to be another boring off-season. 

I think losing Flozell Adams will give us a net +30 in penalty yards per game though.

Till he tweets "Wake & Bake Baby", and the NFL tests him, and he gets a season-long suspension. :)

EDIT:  To be fair he maybe has learned his lesson and he's a really good receiver so you'll do well with him if he doesn't make himself a liability.  He got axed here for more than just weed, but weed I think was the ultimate deciding factor that he wasn't able to get out of and didn't really seem to care to do so anyway.

Which part?   :D

If you mean the last post I made, that was referencing Santonio (or San Antonio, according to the ditz on the news tonight) Holmes...  And yes, Holmes was that dumb.  Big Ben didn't Tweet he was raping anyone prior to any alleged attempted rapes.

OMG... FREAKIN Dez Bryant?  Really?  I blame this crap on f'n Randy Moss.  Hopefully Jerry Jones got it out his system and he can stop chasing bad boys and get back to building the team we need... Defensive Backs, Linemen and a Decent Quarterback (not the 3rd stringer that starts for us now)

So Dallas gets T.O., Jr.  Only without the skills and Touchdowns......

Yes, I am bitter right now..... I'll get over if the Cowboys ever win another Superbowl (so never)...

Steelers picked a Center...  I was surprised by that.

Waaaaaay too much value for them to pass up Bryant at 24.  It's pretty insane that he fell that far.  There were reports that the Cowboys were going BPA with their picks this year and I think that's reflected in this pick.  It was a good one I think.


Steelers picked a Center...  I was surprised by that.

He's a good one!



Meanwhile, I'm disappointed that the Bucs couldn't draft Suh, but I'm pretty excited about McCoy as a consolation prize.  Warren Sapp insists that he's going to be the better pro of the two... hopefully he's right.
