I won't link to it as it deserves no more hits, but I'm finding the bellyaching over "Garbage Time" stats to be hilarious, particularly in light of some regular season games over the past two years. What exactly is Garbage Time against a quality opponent capable of staging a comeback? Last year the Colts came back on the Pats, and almost did it again this year. The Eagles just made the Giants look like total fools on Sunday. If you are a fan of a team, why would you want them to take their foot off an opponent's throat (sorry if I indirectly conjured some Rex Ryan imagery... ugh) until the final whistle is blown? Every snap matters until the seeding is set, and then every snap matters again in January or February. The only place I'd deviate from the Belichick philosophy is not wanting to risk injuries to players in a game where there is no benefit to winning. After what happened to Welker last year, it just isn't worth the diminished performance in the playoffs. I for one am glad that the team I like keeps going for jugular. Would a team without the instinct to always strike be able to muster 24 points against a top defense with only 19 minutes on the field? People complaining about this stuff are upset that their QB isn't capable of doing the same.
