I don't think both teams should get the ball, I think that's a bad idea. If your defense is good enough, you'll get the ball.
The game is already too offense oriented, we don't need to add to it.
Good points. I love the new rules also. My only issue is the one I brought out however I can live with it. Watching those 2 games simultaneously was really crazy. In both games I had accepted defeat at some point. The Bucs comeback was a little more dramatic than the Texans. The Texans game was more of a relief.
