Hang on a second - isn't this what happened in the Browns game, late? Didn't the Stains use up their timeouts on our drive even though they were dead and buried? And didn't that lead us to score on them with Miller's touchdown, because we were annoyed about it?

Spooky. CBS must be tapping up the coaches too!

Maybe the nfl should give teams 6 time outs per half now. Godell might go for it since it would make advertising money for the league.

Nothing like making the worst Monday night game of year longer by wasting TO's for the good of the almighty dollar.

This is one of many reasons I'm really hating football these days.

3 plays - commercial
punt the ball - commercial
2 more plays, play under review - commercial
back to the action, player goes down - commercial

God forbid someone scores. Then you get TD/PAT - commercial - kickoff - commercial - back to the game

I'm starting to see why soccer is so popular everywhere else in the world. The action is non-stop, no commercial breaks except for halftime. I could only dream what a football game would be like with no commercials or at least 100 less a game. In the last few years football has gotten almost as boring as baseball.

Fisher will be coming out with a statement saying what he said in his earlier statement was "misconstrued"...

Just so you can see a commercial that you have seen a hundred times before...

No, Fisher will get fined, then suspended by Goodell, then fired . . . will come out with a book about how corrupt the NFL really is, but before it is completed, the writer and Fishers will be given concrete boots for his final swim in the ocean . . . (sorry watching too much mafia movies lately)
