Coin Toss Schmoin Toss

How interesting can it be?An interesting post over on the fanhouse mentions the possible change in rules regarding coin tosses.

Which kinda got me thinking about the XFL's short lived idea of having a 20 yard dash to secure the ball instead of a toss.

In principle it seemed like a great idea but then, on the very first dash, one of the players dislocated his shoulder and was out for nearly the entire season. Now imagine if that were to happen to your star player and all for the sake of getting to choose who kicksoff first.

So what do you think, could this idea work in the NFL? Is it something you would like to see introduced or not? Got any better alternatives to a toss?
