From Gregg Easterbrook: The Law of Remaining Clock
I really like this one; like so many things, it's so obvious it often gets overlooked.

Re: From Gregg Easterbrook: The Law of Remaining Clock
Its a very good point.
It still takes a pretty special offense to put thos points up, though.
Alot of props should go to Colts playcalling, they mixed in the run plenty, rather than putting everything on Mannings shoulders which I think New England could have defended better.
Although I don't think it happened to the Patriots, some teams actually become very conservative with an early big lead and invite the other team back into it - prevent defense, less pass rush etc.
They've been great for a while now, three Super Bowls' worth of great. But only this season have the New England Patriots become The Show, the must-see team of stars, pretty boys and reformed bad boys. Suddenly, the Patriots are not simply great; they're compelling, fascinating, appearing to be almighty and a touch lawless.
The Patriots didn't bother with swagger to start this NFL season; they went straight to defiant. Either you're one of them or you're about to get crushed.
