Belichek is a classes a-hole. Going for it on two fourth downs in close where any other classy coach would have kicked a field goal. I will say this, his O-Line better protect Brady real well becasue if he keeps this up some team is going to get a little angray and take a shot at the Golden Boy's knee late in a game when he should be on the bench. Then we will see how much of a genius Belichek is in everyone's eyes.

This isn't HS football. Why should the Pat's have to just kick field goals because the skins can't keep up. They took out Brady and all the top players and the skins still couldn't keep up.

First of all, learn to spell. You're embarrassing yourself and minimizing the quality of your comments. Second, your comments aren't that good to begin with. You're pissed off that the Patriots went for it on fourth down with a big lead, and presumably angry with NE for "running up the score." Think about it for a moment--by going for it on fourth down, they're actually giving the defense a chance to stop them. By kicking a field goal, it's almost guaranteed points. Which is less sportsman-like?

Also, will the other team ever stop trying to score points? The game is played for 60 minutes. Maybe NE could call some different plays, or maybe they could play some second-stringers, but ultimately it's the other team's responsibility to stop NE, not NE's responsibility to stop themselves.

A lot of wannabes like you are saying that someone is going to go for Brady's knees. Well, how about you listen to what former players like Randy Cross say: not a chance that anyone will do that. Well, maybe some thug from Cincinnati would, but they don't count, anyway.

Get a grip and deal with the fact that the Patriots are just that good.
