NFL

Here are several other NFL overtime proposals that didn't make the cut

Overtime in the playoffs will be different from what it used to be in the NFL from now on. I'm in the middle of the road as far as my feelings about the new format, but here are some ideas that I pitched to Commissioner Goodell, but to my surprise, he wasn't that receptive. So I'll pitch them to you all, my beloved "Q" family.
 
Combine Challenge - At the beginning of overtime, each team selects two players to participate in the Combine Challenge. One player will run the 40 yard dash and the other will do the bench press. Whoever runs the fastest 40 will win the first half of the challenge and whoever does the most bench press reps will win the second half of the challenge. Should the teams split the events, in the tradition of the NCAA's wonderful overtime, the challenge will continue until there is a winner. Not only is it entertaining, but it also gives the combine something it lacks – a point. (Mike Mamula & Vernon Gholston would approve)
 
Wonderlic Test – Each coach will select a player from their team to take the Wonderlic Test at the 50 yard line. Highest score wins the game
 
Two Minute Mayhem – Each team gets the ball at the 50 yard line and is given two minutes to score as many points as possible. Two Minute Mayhem continues until there is a winner.
 
Mascot Analysis – If two teams are tied at the end of regulation, a team of scientists will determine the winner based on the likely results of what would happen if the two actual mascots engaged in combat. For example, If there’s a game between the Lions and Jets, the Jets would win, because the plane could just fly away from the lion’s rage.
 
Joust – One player from each team battle it out in the popular American Gladiators even in a best of three series to determine the game’s victor
 
Cheerleader Beauty Pageant – A panel of judges determines which team has the prettier cheerleaders. The team with the prettiest cheerleaders will be victorious. The panel of judges will include Simon Cowell, Tiger Woods, Pacman Jones, Shawn Kemp, Travis Henry, Antonio Cromartie, and Ben Roethlisberger (on his bye week)
 
Background Check Challenge – The team’s roster that has the fewest combined arrests (coaches are included in the total) win the game (The Bengals would not approve).
 
Madden Challenge: A player from each team will face off as their teams in the popular video game. Unfortunately, this will do nothing to cause EA Sports to correct the unrealistic player ratings.
 
Football Rumble: Fifteen players from each team will assemble in a ring in an over the top battle royal to determine the winner
 
The Biggest Loser Challenge: The team with the lowest total combined weight wins. (This might cause Kris Jenkins to become unemployed)
 
NFL Spelling Bee: One player from each team will battle it out to determine the winner, having to spell words like Ogunleye, Roethlisberger, and Houshmandzadeh to claim victory
 
I wonder why my ideas didn’t get approved…I wonder why.

During "Cheerleader Beauty Pageant", does Big Ben get penalized 15 yards for every contestant he rapes? (or since he deals in bulk usually, will it just be half the distance to the goal?)

And is [on his bye week] some sort of code or slang for "work release?"

Or the predetermined winners.  and the unreal turnover ratio.

How about each player plays each other in chess (or checkers) ON the field, until they figure which team won the most. I think sponsors would love it.

Why didn't they just go to the XFL style "two-guys-try-to-get-the-ball" at the beginning of overtime instead of a coin flip? lol good post

The Favre rule disables the ability Brett had to screw Brett
