Brandon Staley: New Overtime Rules Change the Calculation


Los Angeles Chargers Head Coach, Brandon Staley joins Dan Patrick on The Dan Patrick Show. He talks about the new overtime rules, specifically how he plans to adjust his approach, and why there is a difference between the playoffs and regular season. He reacts to Tyreek Hill being traded out of the AFC West and their approach to facing the Chiefs as well as how he plans to handle Russell Wilson now twice a year. He talks about what he learned in his first year at the helm. And he weighs in on the success of his crosstown rivals Sean McVay and the Rams.

Dan Patrick: “Strategy-wise, now with overtime and both teams get the ball, what do you think you’re going to be leaning towards if you go into overtime in the postseason?”

Brandon Staley: “...I think that it is going to change things when you don’t have that sudden death element. I do think that there’s going to be some different calculation as you head into the game. And I think that now, when you’re guaranteeing both possessions, which side of the field you’re on, hey, wind, that sort of thing, knowing that you are going to get an op(portunity); it’s that information advantage that you have by possibly deferring because you don’t have that sudden death element.”
