    End of first half

    Not sure if anyone has mentioned this since the threads are flying today, but didn't you find it odd that when the Pats had 1st and goal with about 2 minutes to go that we allowed them to run the clock down to basically nothing without calling a timeout?

    I thought it was wrong last night while watching.
    They only have 4 downs and will at least kick a field goal.
    Why not give yourself more time for one last drive?

    Why prolong the agony?

    At that point it was only 17-0.
    Go get a field goal and get the ball first in the second half.

    Of course little did I know at that point that Tomlin thought the defensive game plan was perfect and had no need to change it.
