Can't imagine it being any worse than it is now.

Sounds like a great idea. Specially if they make an example out of Dick Sherman in the first game of the year.
I want to go out like my Grandpa did. Peacefully in his sleep.

Not screaming in terror like his passengers.

When the games start running 4 hours long and the late games with their higher ad dollar revenue are cut short due to a Washington- Houston snoozer the NFL will rethink and scrap this idea. IIRC they dropped one of their "point of emphasis" campaigns a few years back when i didn't work out the way they had hoped.

Between the advertising and the flags the games have become too long already.
Seeing the end of a night game has become a thing of the past for me.

Except for when the Packers are playing of course.

And to think, it took until only recently for the tv channels to give NFL games 3 1/2 hours of allotted time after years of lying to themselves the games would be over in 3 hours.

Take away all the protection for QB's and WR's and teams will go back to running the ball more often and that'll shorten the game air time.
