Are the idiot owners trying to destroy their own game? By changing this rule, they have marginalized the defenses! Championship teams are supposed to have championship offenses AND championship defenses. So, if team in the playoffs loses the toss, they have to play defense and stop the opponent's offense. If that team scores a touchdown, this rule change makes it OK that your defense FAILED. You will get another chance! Shouldn't be that way. If your defense fails in a championship game, YOU LOSE! That's the way it should be. The noise generated this offseason is just bitching from the playoff's losing teams, and the idiot owners bought into it. Makes the offenses more important than the defenses, so changes to the teams' draft strategies is inevitable. Defenses will take a back seat to the offenses, and that is NOT as it should be. I strongly suspect that they will regret this foolish move.
