It was a bad one. We just have to flush it and forget about it. Still in 1st place in the division with 4 games left. Texans lost and the Pats even lost so I am ok. Not happy with our play but games like these happen from time to time.

I have to think NE won't lose 3 in a row and will beat Houston. I think thats next week. I can't ever recall Brady/BB losing 3 in a row.

    • No. Cherry picking specific decisions is the armchair coach method. I take his body of work....which includes massive QB change, remarkable injuries to important offensive positions, plus an OC change. Frank is a great coach. Extremely happy he is head coach in Indy. 
    • Todays managers are the opposite of yesteryears  type of manager, earl weaver, Billy Martin,  Larussa etc.... the management want "yes men" and "puppet" types that do what the analytical people and GM say. That's why the Yankees hired Aaron Boone and now resigned him.  Teams are in control by management not by managers. 
    • This thread is mildly frightening
    • Correct. The coach has the same goal as the analyst, determining the likelihood that 4th down would be converted.  He "calculated" the likelihood of converting, by processing actually more facts than the amount of facts that can be loaded into a program.    What the analytics guys will tell you is that his intuitive method is fraught with wrong observations and bias, so we need to discard intuitive individual based conclusions and listen to them...the people who can process facts better....IOW, the experts.  LOL. ( See where this is heading on a grand scale..big brother?)   The human brain is a pattern recognition machine that processes useful facts and discards less useful facts in a TOTALLY objective way because it wants to make the right conclusion.  Objectivity is in its self interest because getting it right is better than getting it wrong, and its baked into our instincts (the only way it gets biased is through conditioning).  So the coach processes the more useful facts....IOW, what is happening in his game....and discards the less useful facts about what happened with two other teams in a game 3 weeks ago...and computes a "probability" based upon the more relevant and timely set of facts. (or observations)   Ultimately, the argument comes down to how people process information and what they feel comfortable using as a means to make decisions.  Some need to reduce every decisions into a spread sheet that can be explained.  Others use their pattern recognition and "intuition" and are comfortable with it.  Neither is better than the other, but it does get annoying when its presented as one being better than the other.
    • Did you question him going for the 2 point conversion so early in the game Sunday?
