Prolific offenses have a hard time playing conservativehen when it makes sense to do so and Atlanta paid the price. Not only does running the ball work the clock, if nothing else, Pat's have to use there TO,s. Sets up a chippy from no more than 40 yds and an 11 pt. Lead.....IMO this is coaching. Nothing Ryan could do but get sacked and then the holding to put them out of FG range....Both plays were ripe for a run or a draw, whatever you do, don't call a play where there is potential for a sack!
Brady made a handful of super throws in the second half....The one to Hogan on 3rd and 10 on the last drive of q4 when they were backed up inside there own 10 was huge. There plenty of others. And how about James friggin White, 3 TD,s, a 2 pt conversion, 14 catches for a SB record and 110 yds. He was phenomenal....And when the pats couldn't do squat, he was out there playing his butt off. MVP of the game IMO.
And the fans booing God dell was frigging fitting and Krafts comments albeit succinct, also fitting....So glad God dell had to eat crow.
