But for argument's sake, let's say the amount of time for a review doesn't change. In 2013, the average NFL game lasted 3 hours and 10 minutes and featured 1.6 reviews. Let's say the number of reviews goes up to 10 per game, which is probably a stretch, you're looking at about 18 more minutes. You're now looking at the average NFL game lasting 3 and a half hours. Not a material change, especially when you consider that added time comes with more accurate officiating.

Yeah ... the average time was 3:10 for the actual game plus 50 minutes of complaining about all of the bad calls.  Now it will be 3:30 with only 10 or 15 minutes of complaining afterwards, so the overall time out of your day will be shorter. ;)

6 hours was obviously a hyperbole, but it would make a game that is already bordering on having too much down time have even more. Comparing it to college isn't accurate, because they don't review penalties either.

All it should mean is that TV takes such opportunities for commercials.  Now they have a score - commercial, kick off - commercial.  They would be able to continue the action more around scoring plays and use the review time for commercials.  Also since we a talking about real time reviewing, the time required for such decisions should be only marginally more than what we already see for the between play replays.  Just time enough for the booth to contact the referee and reset the ball and down according to the new information.

In preparation for the Super Bowl, here are a few articles from one of the best football analysts around, Chris B. Brown, aka "smartfootball". No lame narratives or attempts at fueling a controversy, just knowledge bombs being dropped.

 

On the Seahawks side:

This one breaks down how Pete Carroll's twists on some standard defensive concepts and how they've made Seattle's D so tough.

 

For the Broncos:

Manning will obviously be their guy, so here is a piece talking about some of the concepts Manning made his name with in Indy, and has brought over to Denver.

 

Really awesome stuff if you are into the X's and O's. I've learned more about strategy reading Brown's work than I did in 6 years of organized football. Enjoy!

Great post @uno6518 . I love this stuff.  I love the X's and O's stuff and wish the media would do more.  A couple of weeks ago a local Boston station asked Belichick about offenses.  He went into detail about the Tom Landry Cowboys offense and how intricate it was.  It was fascinating. 

 

I don't think any intelligent fan thought that Carroll was a horrible coach in NE, just that he did not have the players to fit his D and he did not know enough about offense.  Our GM at the time was dense.  The media tend to blow things up, which I can't stand.

 

The Seahawks have a real good chance of slowing down the Manning offense for a couple of reasons.  First, the cover corners can limit Thomas and Decker with just one corner each freeing up the safeties.  Once Talib went out, the Pats had no answers with there young secondary, especially with Thomas.  The looked lost and Seattle will not.  Second, the middle linebacker is key to disrupting the "Dig" play and any crossing route.  He has to read the play, but disrupt the crossing route.  The Pats had Collins, a rookie, in that spot and he did not react well to any cross that Thomas had.  Manning ate him up.  

 

My worry for Seattle is their offense.  Wilson is young and has not looked his normal self the last few games.  When the Pats had Gronk in November, it was easier to attack the Denver D because of the match-up.  Without Gronk and limited wide receivers, it was easier for Denver to take away routes.  Seattle relies a lot on running the ball, which I think is Denver's defensive strength.

Joke posted on Seahawk Facebook page: Tom Brady, Colin Kaepernick and Michael Crabtree walk into a bar.  Bartender says "You must be here to watch the Super Bowl".

 

I though it was funny, anyway.

These guys are aware that they are allowed to hit a green in regulation, aren't they?

I don't know if either team has the 34 X out greens in regulation pass in the playbook. a2_wink.gif

Omaha.

I am camera shy.  (Video camera)  Whenever I go to a wedding and somebody starts walking around with a camera and a microphone and asks people to say a few nice words for the bride and groom, I take that as my cue to go to the bathroom or have a cigarette (I don't smoke).

 

This picture ... terrifies me. :bugout:

 

P.S.  Where are they doing this?  Is this at MSG??  Izod??  It's obviously not outside at Metlife. ;)

Prudential Center in Newark.

Izod seems like it would have made more sense. It's right next to MetLife, and no one really plays there anymore. (I'm sure they had a reason though, it's not like they just forgot about the Izod Center. a3_biggrin.gif)

Marshawn Lynch in an interview with Deion Sanders was hilarious. He dropped some absolute gems. I'm just bout that action boss.

 

Deion: “You look good.”

Marshawn: “S***, you do, too.”

Deion: “You’re kinda shy.”

Marshawn: “Nah.”

Deion: “You just don’t wanna talk, really.”

Marshawn: “I’m just ’bout that action, boss.”

Deion: “You just like to do it.”

Marshawn: “That’s what it is. I ain’t never seen no talking win me nothing.”

Deion: “Well I respect it.”

Marshawn: “You want something, you go get it. Ain’t no need to talk about it.”

Deion: “It’s on your back. They feel like if they can stop you, they can stop this team.”

Marshawn: “Well they gon’ have to stop all of us. I’m a piece to it, but we got some dogs.”

Deion: “You don’t like podiums, do you?”

Marshawn: “Nah, it ain’t my thang.”

Deion: “What is your thing?”

Marshawn: “Lay back, kick back, mind my business, stay in my own lane.”

So Lynch is essential the polar opposite of Deion Sanders.

Exactly but I feel like it backfires because he is getting so much attention for trying to stay out of the limelight.

Unless someone shows me the RAW file, I have to believe that this is a Photoshopped collage.  The lighting/white balance is different from one face to the next.  Just doesn't look like a natural photograph to me.  I could do a better job of cutting and pasting than that.

Well, it is a press conference and they could very well have some lighting set up in various spots around the stage.  Photoshopped or not, the view from the stage of a press conference like this would still give me nightmares.
