    I had no idea ... maybe the NFL should think about having advertisers sponsoring Quarters and cut down the time of the game a little ... TD & XP (Time Out) ... Kickoff (Time Out) ... 3 & Out (Time Out)

    maybe they should quit having 4 minute commercial breaks after every stoppage, it's so annoying.

    40 seconds to run a play that takes 8 seconds at max.

    That's 90 plays ind a 60 minute game. - Times 8 seconds, that's 12 minutes.

    And yet in those 11 minutes is more excitement than any other sport in the world can offer.

    i remember a few years ago seeing adds about some sports cable package where you could watch a whole game that you missed in 30minutes... and considering over half of the time they are walking up to the line or settin up a kick, it makes sense
