    8 minutes is way too long. I think it took almost an 1.5 hours to play a user game last night. Guys hat played the cpu may have to chime in as well, but I say we bump it down to 7mins at the most.

    I havent played a user game on 8 minutes yet this version but that seemed to be the perfect amount of time last year. Have played 2 games vs CPU with 7min in the Dru's OD and it seems to short. Does the clock not run like it did last season or did you guys just throw a boat load of incomplete passes?

    It might have been a combination of things. Not used to playing on 8mins, we did throw alot of incompletions, and it seemed like time stood still as I watched by lead twindle in the second half....

    I always play 8 minutes so this is a non-issue for me.

    Yep. That is what I got at least when I looked at the stats on the EA web site. I'll check them again.

    smh, 8 minutes is good enough, 7 isn't long enough.

    maybe it's because all of y'all have powerhouses, try that with Arizona...smh!
