Michael Lombardi writes here that the wasted timeouts (especially right after a change in possession) are indicative of a decision maker who isn't used to making big decisions in big games:
I thought it was interesting. The Patriots sure could have used those timeouts at the end if they were going to try to get into field goal range, or to challenge the spot of the ball on Faulk's catch.
