Amendola told Sports Illustrated's Peter King following the game he expected things to continue.
Amendola just told me he thought there was going to be a second overtime. Didn't know it was over till he heard from an official.— Peter King (@SI_PeterKing) November 12, 2012
"I didn't know the rules! I didn't know you could tie in football," Goldson said. "It's a competitive sport, man -- you've got winners and losers. You've gotta choose one. I never heard of tying in football -- I really didn't."
The Niners defender said he figured things out when he saw the Rams and his 49ers teammates exiting the field.
"When I saw both teams walking onto the field. Yeah, really. I said, 'Where's everybody going? Did somebody quit? Is this a forfeit?'"
It's borderline unfathomable that these guys don't know the overtime rules, considering they, you know, play football and everything. But it's also a little understandable considering just how rare a football tie is with the current (and new) overtime rules.
And on the bright side, now McNabb is off the hook.
