Media versus non-media timeout

It's all about when certain ads are slated to play...

So is there a non-30-sec TO?  I can't say I've ever noticed a pattern to when ads get played during a TO or not

Yeah, I've seen them - can't recall a pattern, but I know they go full split from the action, not the split screen action we get in the 30 second cut.

I'll have to pay more attention now...

*What happens if Joe Montana doesn't get bent in half when he's 31? What happens to Steve Young's career as well?

*If Drew Henson doesn't play baseball/get drafted in the 1st Round by the Yankees, TB12 never starts at UM, much less is drafted, much less becomes who he is today/goes down in history. How many other "what if" stories out there have we missed on due to college coaching/coaching before college (Big Ben, for example, played TE in HS until his senior year, because the HC's son was the QB. Since he only had 1 year as a HS QB and most recruiting is done before your senior year, he only got small offers. It makes you wonder.)

I am completely convinced, and there is no way to prove it, that if Chase Daniel was 6'2, he would have gone to UT and they would have won multiple national titles.

Network gets an allotment of TV timeouts ( 2 minutes) and once they've used all of their allotment for a quarter/half - then they can go to a 30 second timeout IF the team calling it just wants to stop the clock. That's when you'll see the split screen.
IF the networks haven't gotten in all their commercials vyet, then they go full 2 minutes, even if the team calling it is just stopping clock
78 commercials/game is current allotment spread over 4 quarters - that doesn't count the various overlays, just the actual breaks from the broadcast

What of Tony Boselli was healthy and had a 5+ year career as a Houston Texan? What does that do for David Carr?

Carr would only be shell-shocked on one side of his beaten brains, instead of both

All 3 of them are weird dudes.

Brady kisses everyone on the lips. Including his own kids.

Belichick is a curmudgeon.

Kraft prefers 40 dollar rub and tugs to the world class escorts he could easily afford.

I don't think being a curmudgeon is weird, he's old so it's kind of expected.  

$40 jobs don't necessarily make it worse than what the world class escorts could offer.

Yeah Brady is weird as ****.

Based upon his production at Missouri, he may have done well enough there even if not as long as he's offered a scholarship.

You lost me I didn't compare lebron and jordan at all I simply was curious to know why Phil Jackson and MJ aren't dissected and broken down just like Brady and bill B are.

Rethinking it I think it's because MJ had a coach before Phil and peaked with him he kinda needed Phil as a catalyst.

I remember lots of talk about this when it was more relevant.  Maybe even more than BB and Brady.  

I think there isn't a lot of talk about it is because everyone knows PJ wins nothing without MJ/PIP and Shaq/KB.  Coaches have way less impact in basketball than in NFL it's not even close.

Mods please don't lock this. There's been a market for random questions that don't belong in other threads for ages :D

All your points are very valid but as I'm reading each one I keep saying to myself the kraft ,brady , bill B relationship always seemed awkward and not organic to me. Like I feel like Kraft loved brady maybe Brady won some power struggles we don't know about. I mean him and kraft kissed on the lips after a superbowl lol. They were right as soon as tom said to him I was the best pic you ever made lmao.

Bill B is an awkward dude but I get a sense he's different behind closed doors there's some personality there. I remember that randy moss halloween party video and you could tell bill B was hyped.

My input is that your first para is correct - Kraft and Brady are chums forever. Brady is the son Kraft never had (....have you seen his actual son....eesh)

And your second paragraph is correct too, by literally ALL account from ex-players I've heard across all our teams' podcasts, different forms of media, the players love Bill and say he's totally different and warm away from football. Knows a lot about people's personal lives, because he's actively interested in them, their families etc. In work mode he's clearly the type of person that doesn't care if/who he upsets by making his decisions, and he doesn't care that he comes across a total tool in press conferences.

How many QBs are having a better year than Lamar last year?

(Ignoring the the fact teams suck on defense this year)

I think I'd say Wilson and Mahomes. I don't want to forget what Lamar did (which was shred defenses all season), but I feel both Wilson and Mahomes' QBing this season is totally lighting it up.

That's on him, he needed to work harder to figure out where the blitz was coming from...he just took snaps and tried to freestyle out there, that's gonna get you killed with a functional OL.
