//Suddenly, the �running up the score� mentality of stomping the gas hard late in the game that�s been so lambasted is starting to look like a training tactic.//

I think that's the best explanation of that behavior I've heard so far. And it's perfectly Belichickian, too...

Yes, absolutely! I had the same thought while watching the game last week. When the Patriots got all intense, in spite of the lopsided score, and did a two-minute drill just before halftime, I thought, "Bellichik is using this as a training exercise!"

Thanks, this was an interesting post.


Great job Beth! Those interference calls were probably the worst ever, and I would expect Hobbs is going to get another apology letter from the NFL. Thankfully it's going to come after a key win instead of a key loss.

Big difference from last year: When the Pats needed a first down to seal the deal, Welker made the catch. Last year, Caldwell dropped it. Big, BIG difference!
