Generally, nothing though is more annoying to me than a QB burning a time out early in either half to avoid a 5 yard delay penalty. Only in very rare circumstances does that make sense.

How many yards is a timeout worth?

I give up.  How many?

I'm serious.

I watch coaches call for a timeout when they are about to be caught with 12 men on the field and I keep wondering if that is a reasonable tradeoff.

Third and one, yes
First and 15 because of off-sides?  Sure, why notake the delay.

There appeard to be some egregiously bad calls in the 1st qtr.

In the 2nd qtr it seemed the Falcons were content dicking themselves.

Every team turns into idiots when they play the Patriots.

Time well spent.

heh

On a more serious note, now I will spend an inordinate amout of time pondering how did the Pats down two starting CBs and in general looking like shit on D for the entire season, put on a defnsive clinic against one of the better offensive teams in the NFL.

yank is partly right, a lot of teams brain freeze against the Pats, but still...

Strange game.
