The Pats have had their way with our D in the 4th quarter. On 4th and 8 from their 40, it doesn’t make sense to punt. We shouldn’t have called a bomb pass there to a player whose head does not appear to be in the game (Quarless). We should have called a shorter pass play over the middle on 3rd with the understanding that we were going for it on 4th down no matter what. That is poor planning and I don’t like allowing a powerful offense to have the chance to ride this game to a conclusion.
Why would we punt there down by 4?
