I am a Saints fan who is terribly frustrated by my teams lack of aggression with the weapons it has on offense. I am not going to defect or anything but I have liked the patriots more in recent years than some other top teams. I think they are a good role model. I hate the Colts. Anyway, on ESPN they were talking about how Belichick went for it twice on fourth down while up 28 points. Then they showed a clip where he said "I really don't like kicking field goals." Now, I just picked up Gostkowski on my fantasy team, but besides that factor, I love the sentiment. Why not go for it more? But the question is, why doesn't this same philosophy go for two point conversions? It's just plain inconsistent. All the same gambles are involved. Belichick also talked about 'giving them an opportunity to stop us, not just taking the points.' Well, a two point conversion attempt is like the same thing. I really think that it would benefit some teams to attempt two point conversions on all their early tds. They could force teams to try to match them, but those teams would be less prepared to attempt the two point conversions or defend them than a team that constantly initiates this strategy game to game. It would be great. I think that coaches do not do this because they know that it is more likely to cost them their job if it doesnt work than it is to help them if it improves the team. Conventional wisdom and going with the herd is a great defense argument to hold onto a job for a safe amount of time. So, how about it? Belichick is getting very aggressive. Why not take the next step? Even if you score just like 35 points without any kick scoring, it will be probably be a record for highest scoring without a kick. Then you can break it the next game. Vrabel could get as many 2 pointers each game as any Celtic but Pierce before the trades. It would be cool and it would destroy the conservatism that plagues many NFL offenses.
