There are few things worse in sports than when conventional wisdom of how something should be done (because that’s how it’s always been done) sends a chilling effect for innovation and ingenuity.
There are few black-and-white decisions in the course of a football game. One may be better than the other, but it’s never 100 percent to zero percent. Belichick didn’t make a good choice or a bad choice, he made his own choice.
Having a coach think for himself based on great insight (statistical or otherwise) should never be called a bad move.
Great lines IMO. i saw Eric allen this AM calling the BB decision a pop warner coach would make. Thats the reason there are so many bad coaches and teams. Because very layman thinks he can coach just because they call the same plays and gameplans which fail and then blame it on the team/players/injuries and everything.Frankly from hating the call on sunday to today,my respect for our coach has grown even more.
My only gripe is that after looking at the reply 1000 times, Brady seemed to have Welker up the middle and instead, focused on Faulk who was in tighter coverage. Oh well. What if...
It was fairly clear from Brady's radio interview that he was going to Faulk before the snap, he knew they would be coming after him, he had to get rid of it quickly and his presnap read liked the matchup with Faulk.
I have never understood certain fans, sports writers that waste hours of their life with large article/threads complaining about blown calls. Nothing you say will change it. I think the one part where I really agree with the guy is when he points out two huge red zone TOs. The Pats EXECUTE, and we're not talking about it.
Honestly folks, this loss sucks theres no way around it. This team is still alive, just forget about it and move on. Griping about calls and all that bull**** is nothing but a waste and it drives you crazy.
If you blame the officials than you have already lost.
Fans can blame officials - I hate it when players blame officials, but our guys never do that. But, we, as fans, sure - the refs blew it and I will state that. It certainly doesn't affect the outcome and it doesn't excuse the Patriots from making the mistakes they did to lose that game, it's just another factor that is OK to mention.
