The increased use of no-huddle offenses has broadcasters scrambling to keep up. Less time in between snaps means less time for replay, graphics and other tidbits.

"When you're calling a Patriots game you cannot rest," CBS broadcaster Marv Albert told the Wall Street Journal.

FOX color commentator and NFL Network analyst Brian Billick added, "It's tight enough as it is, you only have 10 to 15 seconds to make a point and now you don't even have that."

The reduction of replays is frustrating at times. But the positive might be less Tebow talk over a 60-minute span. As long as they return from commercial on time, I'm good.

However, I would love to be there when the networks approach Belichick with the "problem."
