Let the debates begin.

There are so many debates that came from the Green Bay Packers' overtime loss to the Arizona Cardinals. Should the Packers' have gone for two instead of kicking the field goal? Should overtime rules be changed so each team has a chance to touch the football? And what about that coin toss?

TODAY's TMJ4's Lance Allan stopped by Wisconsin's Afternoon News to talk about the debates spinning from Saturday night's game. 

“To me it was the right call," says Allan when referring to the field goal kick. "This is one of those debates where everone is right and wrong, it can go back and forth. Just imagine if you went for two and didn’t get it? Now it’s easy to say they should have gone for two and it’s a no brainer, but the extra point with Mason Crosby is about as automatic as it gets… I know it’s convenient to look back at it, but at the time I didn’t have that big of a problem with it.”

And although he feels it shouldn't be completely like college football, Allan thinks the other team should have a say in overtime. 

“I think the other team should at least have the opportunity to touch the ball… I think that if the Cardinals score the touchdown, the Packers, or whomever the team is, should at least have the opportunity to have a say in the matter.”
