This may ease jk's concern:

For a brief second, it looked like Cleveland Browns were off to a 2-1 start for the 2007 season. The Oakland Raiders, using a tactic that worked against them last week with the Denver Broncos, would call a timeout at the last second and make Phil Dawson and the Browns attempt a field goal a second time. The first, that didn't matter, sailed through the goal posts. The second attempt would be blocked.
Bob Costas chimed in on JK's side during halftime of NBC's 'Football Night in America.' His suggestion was that time outs should only be allowed when the clock isn't already stopped. Apparently Bob has never changed his mind, or doesn't think NFL coaches should possess the ability to do so.
