than the college game, to try and shorten the total time of games. If they DID stop the clock after first downs, as efficient as some of these teams are at running the "two minute offense", I do believe there would be some very different outcomes.

There are a few dumb timing issues imo in both college and nfl. One being the clock running and the umpire standing there holding up the play for substitutions in the college game. Any first down for either imo should stop the clock seeing you have to reset the chains. That one is common sense to me but they never asked me. So here we are.
