Bill Belichick made the right call in going for it on fourth down and has three Super Bowl rings as justification for his decision.
Belichick rightfully thought that his defense could not stop the Colts. Based on that assessment, he opted to put the ball in the hands of his best player, Tom Brady, who is also the best player in the league.
Belichick has used his intuition to win three Super bowls and navigated a 16-0 regular season. His instincts served him well and his team executed the play. It’s laughable that people would call Belichick’s decision making into question given his accomplishments.
Leadership is not easy. Belichick chose to lead as he has done successfully for many years. His only mistake was handling his timeouts, but no one could have guessed that he would need that final timeout for a review.
Bottom line, things happen and Belichick did what he felt was right in that situation. No different than what he’s done for many years. That’s why he’s a future Hall of Fame coach.
