Not really, Dutch.
Lots of teams, including the Pats, use that extra OT near the goal-line from time to time.
Or like the Dolphins, when they started all that wild cat thing, use an extra OT quite often.
Also, we have used this formation forever, when Salaam was still with us.
Near the goal-line, sometimes we would see D. Brown, Salaam, and Winston as OTs.
