Most of that is stupid, but I like the thirty-five second play clock and I love the fact that losing yards inside two minutes is akin to an incomplete pass. Both mean more football overall and the second dramatically helps alleviate what I find to be the biggest flaw to this great game...running out the clock.
This is supposed to be a sixty minute game. I hate that we can watch fifty-eight minutes of a great game and then have it end with the QB essentially falling to one knee and practicing his marriage proposal. That is not football and not how a game should end. Then team/coaches are seen as scum if they attempt to "Play 60" and disrupt the kneel down in any way.
There is standing around in all sports, but football is the only one where standing around and doing nothing is literally part of the game as the clock is actually running while they do nothing. I always imagine Mariano Rivera on the mound in the 9th, or Jordan on the FT line attempting to ice the game, and just saying "I do not want to risk screwing up, just going to take a knee." I hate that football allows teams to just stop playing during what should be the most important part of the game.
Forcing teams to gain at least one yard for the clock to run would be the NFL's version of making free throws at the end of the game. It is the best thing to come out of the Arena league (that is right Kurt Warner) and is something that should have been adopted yesterday.
