    IMHO BB pushes that a little too far. Is there any reason on earth for Brady or Dillon to play in the 4th? Isn't 3 quarters more than enough to work on things and put the game on ice? Wouldn't you like to see the backups perform for the entire 4th quarter and gain that experience?

    I agree with you and I cringe seeing Brady getting hit in the fourth quarter with a seemingly in the bag Pats win. But, how can you question Belichick's moves, taking into account his record with the Pats? Maybe playing all the starters late into the game is another statement, if just to the players themselves that this is the way Bill does it and he isn't changing what got them three rings.
