Bill Belichick accurately predicted John Fox would chicken out
Belichick plays to his opponent like no other coach in the league. If he was facing a gambler like a Mike Smith or a Sean Payton, there’s no way Belichick leaves a potential fourth-and-1 conversion, and potential 20-7 lead, for the taking. Instead, he seemed to anticipate that Fox would cave, kick the field goal and get away with a nine-point lead. No guts, no glory. Following the field goal, New England scored the next 27 points, en route to an easy 41-23 victory.
I think all of us here at IAOFM have written about this before, most recently in the Gut Reaction from Sunday.
John Fox, we repeat: grow a pair.
