In the same situation, Houston passed 38 times, converting 7. 18% conversion rate. You also threw 4 picks. You guys ran it an astounding 22 times, converting the aforementioned one time. That would wind the ever loving snot out of me as well.

The difference between staffs? I bet Belichick knew this off the top of his head, and clearly, who ever is calling plays for you guys, doesn't. Now, this is the old "put the ball in the hands of our best player" theory. But, as eriadoc has pointed out, it ain't working.

what a neat toy that is!

Like I said, in the Dolphins game for example, we had a large lead and so we ran the ball in the fourth quarter. There's nothing wrong with that.

The majority of the situations for the Pats were different.
You needed to convert the majority of those situations.
