You may be in a minority. Most people (here) did not want the Pats to win another Superbowl. I suspect the OP is certainly one of those.

For the regular season, sure
For the Super Bowl?
Yes, even the Superbowl. Seeing teams go back and forth with no end in sight will eventually get old. Think of signs of impatience after already sitting for a full game. Again, even players get tired and want a resolution.

It'd need to be proven to me that the length of baseball games is significantly more variable than that of football games.
Really? How often do football games go beyond overtime? How often do baseball games go beyond 9 innings?

What did the NFL push as The Greatest Game Ever Played? The 1958 Championship which went to Sudden Death overtime. Sudden death, not trading possessions was the dramatic break which gave that first championship the status it held.
