They also went for it on 4th and short earlier this year inside their own 30 versus Atlanta and made it, and ended up kicking a field goal on that drive.

Indy had 1 timeout, so if they stop NE they'd get the ball back with ~25 seconds and 80 yards to go.

Directv, if you have the Superfan addition to NFL Sunday ticket, airs every game in 30 minute shortcuts, which are every single play with no time in between or commercials. In other words you can watch all 14 afternoon games in 7 hours and not miss a play...its ****ing awesome.

I hate Bill Belichick and the Pats, but after seeing him having the balls to make that call I like him a hell of a lot more

No, I wouldn't want to play 10 handed pretty much ever.

Possibly ridiculous question: if you are the COLTS do you want them to go for it?

Colts fans definitely don't want them to go for it.

Re: Do you agree with Belichick's 4th down attempt?

Agreed with this specific decision.

Think this is easily the worst coached team BB has had in NE and he loses points for strategic incoherence for both not letting the Colts score after the first completion on the last drive and for not running third and fourth down as a coherent play sequence. So I sort of dont care that he's getting killed in the media, even if its for the wrong reasons.

Re: Do you agree with Belichick's 4th down attempt?

That's actually a bit more interesting if you buy the media stories like BB not believing in his defense. I think in that case you like them punting even more if you're the Colts than the Pats fans like going for it because then you can win it, it's in Manning's hands instead of the D and so on.
