Tuesday on 2 Pros and a Cup of Joe, Jonas Knox, Brady Quinn and LaVar Arrington react to the latest uproar against NFL Overtime Rules and explain why the rules are fine the way they are, but if anything needs to change, it would be an end to overtime all together in the regular season.

Brady Quinn: "If we're being real about this, I wouldn't even have an overtime in the regular season. If you're trying to make changes to the overtime rules, and you're implementing player safety, yet it can still end in a tie like it can in the regular season, why have it all together? Why make any of the players have to go through that in a 17 game season that's probably going to be an 18-game season?"
Jonas Knox: "Kind of a waste of time."
Brady Quinn: "It's an incredible waste of time, so instead of having an overtime at all, just have regulation be able to end in a tie and then you have overtime rules that are purely, strictly set for the playoffs. And then we can have this discussion about wanting both teams to touch the football. That's great, but what does that really solve?... We have to stop acting like everything needs to be fair. Sometimes it doesn't work out that way. Sometimes your defense has to step up and make a play. Defense wins championships, right? That's what they say, but apparently we don't use that in this argument."
LaVar Arrington: "I used to ride-n-die with that comment but I don't know if that still exists."
