    You kick a field goal when you need the points and a 3 point swing has a significant impact on the game at hand (AKA, when you go from "tied" to "winning"). You go for it on 4th when you don't really need the points or when the odds of success at converting vs. getting a FG are disproportionately high (when you're at 4th-and-short in long FG territory). This isn't ******* rocket science.

    Yes, and the Eagles also kicked an onside kick in the middle of the 2nd quarter. Should we have also done that? :rolleyes:

    Can we kill this thread please? This has gotta rank right up there in terms of uselessness. Let let it die off by not replying.

    Well, you should be glad then that the Pats kicked the FG, as opposed to going for a 4th and 6, and perhaps missing. Then, Philly might have won the game.

    You're all over the map with your responses, but at least you admitted that you're not a Patriots fan, as many of us assumed anyway.

    P.S. - Are you really a "fan of the sport", when you don't understand there are times you SHOULD go for a FG and times you should not?

    Great response. This guy is simply a TROLL. I'm ashamed that I wasted several responses on him. I usually don't take the bait.

    anyone else notice that people to call themselves sports advisors or anaylizers tend to know nearly nothing about the sport itself
