    Re: I'm happy that Bradshaw scored the TD.

    I think this play in the SB will be something that everybody will notice and plan for in the future. Here's what shoulda happened...

    Bradshaw, once he realized they weren't going to touch him, shoulda ran down to about the 1/2 yard line and just ran in place...ready to score if anybody gets close. You have to score there, but if you can beat them at their own game by scoring and taking time off the clock, it becomes even more rewarding...if that's possible.

        it was the correct play. There are so many things that could go wrong on a field goal attempt.

          If it was Peyton Manning on the other side I can understand not scoring somewhat. But it was Brady who needed the TD. He is the king of getting his team into FG position. So forcing him to score a TD is not a bad decision. His "clutch" ability is a big time myth. All his SB were won by his kicker.

            you can see in the Sound FX clips though when he does fall over and score you can read Eli's lips...




            he says...:"****"......




            It has been discussed heavily already but I guess there are two schools of thought. But one thing you can argue with is the outcome.....

              Like The _New_York_Giants said, take the TD let your defense make the stop. If a team can't stop a drive down the entire field for a td with 50 secs in the Superbowl that is just sad.

                  One long completion OR PI and the Pats get a shot at a FG for the win, if we go for the FG and make it. They needed 45 yds and their play calling would've been totally different. I was ok with making them get 7. They're not a Big play team.

                    Saying you'd rather force your defense to make a stop in that spot than kick a 20 yd FG is like saying you'd rather shoot a free throw to win a championship than make a wide open layup.

                      Bad analogy, as the D still had to make a stop. One long completion or PI and they're in FG range. For a FG they had to get withing the 35. As this is a hypothetical, who's to say they don't get a decent return, even if it's to the 30. Then they need only 35 yds but the D needs to protect 65 yds, iow's the whole field. IIRC the Pats had one Bomb all year, that was Welkers 99 yarder.

                          20 seconds for 1, 2 or three plays. That's quite possible.

                            It was 57 seconds when we scored, so if he went down they would have called a timeout, we run one play maybe takes 3-4 seconds off the clock, run clock all the way down and take timeout or delay of game, and a few seconds go off the clock to kick the FG, maybe 4-5 seconds. That leaves about 10 seconds left. So if they try to return the kick at all that will take most of the time off the clock and they will have time for one play and one play only. If they kneel in the end zone they MAYBE have time for one play to the sidelines, but even that is iffy. And it has to go like 45 yards to the sidelines at least. If they complete in bounds, the game is over.

                              You have to trust the defense. Look at how the Patriots made it into the Super Bowl. As someone also pointed out, they already had a very close call that game on a kick that just made it.

                                That analogy probably makes more sense if you compare it to the fg vs. taking the td. Taking the TD is like taking the wide open layup as it is guaranteed points. Where as the field goal is like the free throw, because it isn't guaranteed you'll make it.
