So I was reading John Clayton's mailbag and a guy had a nice take on a rule change for OT. He suggested that the coin toss from the pregame could count for OT. I always hate that whoever wins the coin toss in OT could just march down the field and kick a field goal for the win. With this system if a team is down by 1 after a touchdown and time is expiring and they know they won't get the ball in OT then they could go for the 2 point conversion instead.
