Film Review

November 17, 2009|Sam Farmer

A common response to media questions after NFL games is, "I have to wait to see the film." Times NFL writer Sam Farmer devotes this week's installment to Bill Belichick's fourth-down call against Indianapolis:

Bill Belichick, when asked if he would make the same decision again:

"You only get one chance."

::

::

Rodney Harrison, NBC analyst and former star safety for the Patriots:

"[It was] the worst coaching decision I've ever seen Bill Belichick make."

::

Jim Caldwell, Indianapolis coach:

"There are things that you have to weigh, you have to take into account, and things that are not readily available to the public. So I'm not going to question anybody's decision, especially someone who has won more Super Bowl championships than most people dream about."

::

Brandon Meriweather, New England safety, above, to WEEI radio, on the

decision:

"I was excited. I was ecstatic. To trust the defense so much to give Peyton Manning the ball on the 20-yard line, or better yet, go for it to win the game right there, you've got to be excited. You've got to be behind him 100%. Whenever Bill makes a decision like that, we're always

behind him. That's

the Bill Belichick everybody knows."

::

Boston Globe headline:

"Belichick Gaffe

Unrivaled."
