    I actually agree, I think it was the right call. That said, I also believe that if we did not make it, we should have let them score as quick as possible to give Brady enough time to drive us to within FG range. 13 seconds is not enough time.

    I think that they should have tried to keep them out of the Endzone... until the got to the 1. If I was BB, I'd would have told my players "Do everything you can to prevent them from getting yards, BUT if they do break off a run or a pass and end up close to the goal line and there is still a minute left, let them in and give Brady a chance to win it.

    It would have been brilliant if he stuck consistently with his strategy (which he didn't).

    If you know you're going on 4th no matter what, then run on 3rd and 4th.

    If you fail, immediately lay down and let Indy score, and get the ball back.

    Unfortunately the way he did it was incoherent.

    It wasn't incoherent. It was totally logical.

    Would I have run on 3rd and 4th ? Yes I probably would. But we have a Hall of Fame QB, great WR and a crappy running game. He put it in the hands of our best players. While I would have run, it's hard to argue with putting the ball in the hands of Brady and not Maroney.

    It would be foolish to let them score immediately. They were at the 30 and needed a TD. You don't just give that up. The stop at the 1, I can see the argument there. But not immediately at the 30.
