In my last blog I described the poor sportsmanship of the Pats by keeping Brady in when the game was basically over.  At one point the score was within 14 points, after the back up for New England threw a pick that was returned for a touchdown.

At that point people are telling me, "Bill Bellichek couldn't trust the game to Cassell (the back up)."  And as right as they may be, there was another solution for the Pats... RUN THE BALL.  When you're up by 21, what are you even doing throwing, run the ball and waste clock, don't even risk anything.

But instead the Pats bring Brady back in.  This was a very foolish choice by Bellichek for two main reasons.  What happens if Brady gets hit, and breaks his throwing arm?  The team would be in serious trouble if their star player was hurt for an extended period of time.  If Brady gets hurt, Bellichek would be questioned, but since he comes in and throws a TD, he looks like a genius.  Also, every pass Brady keeps throwing, the more tired he's becoming.  Rest him and give him a break, save his arm for when you really need it, in the post season.

They didn't need Brady in, they were up by fourteen, with capable running backs, and a great defense, they could still have easily won the game, without risking injuring their star QB.
