2014 NFL Season Thread

Great! Another tie game. The NFL still allows regular season games to end in a tie! They can ban dunks on a gpal post but they can have the power to end tie games with no winner and loser?

If you can't get a win in 75 minutes of game time then you don't deserve to win; simple as that.

This is probably the worst cliche in all of sports. Its a competition. Competitions don't end in ties. Even if its 1200 minutes. Do baseball teams not deserve to win after 12 innings? Should they just end in a tie? At least a tie can be justified in baseball because its 1 of 162. When you only play 16 football games, there should ALWAYS be a winner and a loser. No excuses.

I don't have any issues with ties. I think the only time where there should be no ties are the playoffs, otherwise I say bring 'em.

Upset brewing in Seattle? It would be awesome if the Hawks get punked at home by the Boys.

What makes 60 minutes different from 75? 60 is still a lot of minutes.

What do would you suggest they change about overtime? Imagine the outcry about player safety if they decided to just play until a winner was determined. Ties are rare enough that it's not really an issue.

I don't care if Dallas punks them or not, but a win would be quite nice.

I feel.....nothing. A tie is probably the correct outcome for that game. Both teams deserved to win.

I'm just happy Jeremy Hill did the Ickey Shuffle.

Cowboys are giving this one away. Two unforced errors have Seattle looking to take the lead.

Back to back errors at that. Sigh.

Edit: What a throw and catch by Romo and Williams. That was pretty.

They're so careless with the ball, but they're still in this game and have a chance to still win.

Yeah they do love shooting themselves in the foot, but they are rolling right now so there is hope.

That might have been the best toe-tap catch I've ever seen. That ball looked impossible to catch in bounds.

Dallas wins a game they kind of dominated. They were the much better team today and it was really only a game as a result of some dumb mistakes by Dallas.

What a win by the Bears. Shut up a lot of people w/ a crushing second half on an apparently wimpy Falcons squad.
