Matt Barrows @mattbarrows John Harbaugh suggests this wasn't his little brother's first issue with his ticker
"He's feeling good," John Harbaugh said of his younger brother today. "He had a little procedure. He's had it before. I guess it's a little more advanced now [with] his heart rate and things like that. So, it should correct that. He's back at work today from what I understand."
It isnt surprising that this isnt the first time he has been in atrial fibrillation. It can occur acutely, chronically or intermittently. It comes back in many even after cardioversion. Ultimately he may eventually go on a beta blocker (like metoprolol) and a blood thinner (like warfarin). It isnt an issue that will prevent him from doing his job.
The comment from his brother about it being more advanced isnt entirely accurate. Atrial fibrillation makes your heart rate irregular. Basically, if you felt his pulse it would occur with variable time intervals between beats.
What his brother was likely referring to was that Jim had something called atrial fibrillation with rapid ventricular response. In other words, the atrial fibrillation was also causing his heart rate to run a bit high (likely 100s to 130s). So he had an irregular and also fast rhythm

First time poster and this is the best you can do? If you had looked at the whole picture, it didn't even need to have come down to an OT.
Here you want to blame CK, others David Akers ... when the REAL problem (in this case) was the special teams that allowed TWO fake punts and the inability of the Defensive coordinator to put two people on Danny Amendola after it became obvious that he was the go to guy.
The game should have been over in regulation time.
