Yes they do, big time. I wonder if the league will make a change at the meetings this Spring. Mark Murphy is on the competition committee, think I'll write in to his questions column at Packers.com and ask (not that I'll get an answer)!

Ties make no sense in a 16+ game NFL season with a Super Bowl always in sight.

Baseball gets 162 games per team, and they always go into extra innings to decide the winner.

Soccer's the only game I'm aware of where a tie (draw) is "acceptable"!

NFL needs to develop a way to decide game winners.

Bears are leading by 3, another 3 and out for the Vikes and maybe we'll have another low scoring game or "oh, no" another tie??? Wow, Cutler just threw a great pass, go figure! Back to DWTS!

I hope this game ends on a 3-3 tie. With both teams having a TD nullified in OT by a holding penalty and both teams missing 2 FGs apiece. Oh, and both defenses creating a safety only to have it nullified by an offsides penalty.

If this was a college game, about now is when the "Overrated" serenade would begin.
