    Brady was quick counting frequently, so I think they had to be expecting that.  It seemed like a perfect time to try and draw them offsides with a hard count.  Especially considering how undisciplined SD was all day.  I know they had no TOs, so if it didn't work it would likely be a delay call and a punt.  But I thought it was worth a shot.

    We just paid brady 20 Million for a reason. The Chargers had been stuffing our running game all day. The only running play I wanted to see there was a QB Sneak. Other wise they should have thrown for it. The Chargers defense was excellent yesterday.

    I guess I would have punted.  But do you think all those poor snaps on punts earlier in the game influenced BB's decision?

    I like the call... Green -Ellis didn't follow his lead blocker... The hole was there between guard and tackle, he bounced it outside. All he had to do was follow Conally into the hole, put his head down, keep his legs churning, first down and we wouldn't be having the discussion

    Punt the ball and make them go the length of the field.  The ONLY reason San Diego was moving the ball in the 4th quarter was because New England was playing that wonderful "prevent" defense.  Punt, play aggresive defense.  End of story.  They got lucky.

    Great call, poor running back vision.  All BJG had to do was read his full back block and it would have been game over or even a touchdown.  Don't know if you all saw the replay but if he broke inside of his fullbacks block the play could have even went the distance.

    You have struggled all game on the left side, Light and Connelly and they run that way?

    Hate the play calling absolutely right call in that situation.

    I think the poll options are a little skewed - obviously it was the wrong call since the play got stuffed!

    The decision was fine with me - play to win.

    Re: 4th and 1. what did you think of the call?

    Regarding the 4th and 1 call - There are two things I am thankful for in this regard:

    1. Thankful we have a coach that has enough confidence in his Hall of Fame QB and offense that they can gain 1 yard on the 49 yard line that will basically win them the game.

    2. Thankful that even if they don't - that we have a coach with the balls and confidence to not care what anybody else thinks and do the same thing next time, because with this team...regardless of the two unlucky times it has failed....it is the right thing to do.

    NET:  The ball was on the 49 yard line.  The Chargers have all three time outs and have driven down the field the last couple of possesions.  In the 4th quarter on the final drive...they would then basicaly have 4 downs each set of downs because they would be going for it on 4th.  If the Pats get the one yard they win the game, end of story.  If they don't...the Chargers take over on the 49 yard line.  The defense gets to hold them where it counts....on the fringe of field goal range...while they are still fresh -  which they did and they won the game.  If they punt it, they might only pick up 20 more yards and then you give one of the best passing QB's/Offenses 4 downs a possession to drive down the field with three time outs left. The Pats D was already tired, they were beat up from the week before and by the time the Chargers got to that spot on the fringe of Field Goal range...they probably would have given up a first down/TD like the two previous possessions..never mind the field goal.

    Great Call Coach!

    The problem was the formation. They moved the receivers tight in the box, which allowed San Diego to have 11 guys in tight formation. No space to run. They needed to spread the field wide, and either:

    a) QB sneak
    b) Hand-off
    c) Run play action

    even statistically it's the wrong call.  punt them inside the ten, and let them play defense.  we all sit here and say they wouldn't stop them, but A. they held them to a long field goal attempt with a short field and B. based on what we saw all day, the Chargers would have stopped themselves.

    And the game was not over if they picked up the first down.  SD had all three time outs left, and probably would have got the ball back with a little over a minute left.

    Love Belichick, love the aggressiveness........but this was an awful call.

    What the hell, were you guys watching the same game? It was the same play they ran for a TD only BJGE ran outside his block and got stuffed.  As a few here who have a clue have noted had he followed his block it would have been a first down and we would not be having this discussion.

    I applaud the call, play to win (and please stop dropping the LB's 10-12 yards off the line of scrimage!).

    Laz, u are one wild out of the box thinker. that explanation went so far over my head. Do u mean to say we should have punted because we cant just say oh our defense will not hold up so we have no choice but to go for it?
