Titans Coach Jeff Fisher Supports Playoff Overtime Proposal

  1. As co-chairman on the NFL Competition Committee, Titans coach Jeff Fisher not only is in favor of changes to playoff overtime rules, he's one of the key minds behind the proposal that owners are scheduled to vote upon at next week's Annual Meeting. This is Fisher's rationale for the change from "sudden death" to a format that tries to give each team the ball at least once. "What we don't want to have happen in the playoffs is a kickoff return, and then a penalty and a field goal, and have the game be over," Fisher said. "What we're proposing has sudden-death qualities throughout it, even at the beginning. Bottom line is that each team will have an opportunity to possess doesn't guarantee a possession."

    Why not just go ahead and guarantee each team a possession, ie college rules. It makes the most sense.
