    Forget 4th & 2 the REAL problem was...

    Let's get past all the issues with 4th & 2.  The real problems arose after that.  Concede the fact we didn't have a timeout that would've enabled us to challenge the "bad" spot (at least REALLY put the officials on the hook) and focus on the real decision that cost the PATS the game.  They turned the ball over to PEYTON MANNING @ the 28 yd line with 2:23 remaining on the clock (approx).  This is a future HOF QB with weapons who has shown certain admirable late game abilities, correct?  A TD gives them the lead and they have whatever time is left and 3 timeouts.  Most NFL coaches will drain the clock before they score to deny the opponent the opportunity to win the game. So why in the HELL did the PATS not let them  score?  Worse case scenerio, why tackle Adai at the goal line?  That would've left Brady, Moss, Welker & company approximately 1:15 to move into game winning FG position.  The problem was THEY JUST WEREN'T THINKING.  Even if the coaches missed it, the players should've made the call.  Letting them score would've provided the BEST opportunity to win the game...

    Now that's a Bobby Fischer-like scenario!  I was looking down the field AFTER the score at a potential Ghost field goal outer limit, but not once had I considered your option before the Colt's scoring fact.  Kudos to genius.  Now if we can only fire the moron who's speaking into BB's headset and hire you we'd have it made!

    After hearing the "official" explanation, I feel even worse.  How in the hell does Jack Del Rio, a man whose job was in jeopardy 4 weeks ago, get it right, and our coaching staff fall asleep at the wheel?  Different circumstances, yes, but right philosophy...
