Name one game ever where the starters sat for the 4th quarter. Any team, any game. Since so many people are hopping on this, maybe one of you would like to research every NFL blowout, and let me know how many times the starters all sat for the 4th.Brady and co played two series in the 4th, running the ball until they had to throw. Amazing how many people have the same stupid opinion. This is simply not true.1st-10, NE20 12:32 T. Brady incomplete pass to the left 2nd-7, NE36 10:29 T. Brady passed to W. Welker to the left for 14 yard gain 1st-10, IND39 7:37 T. Brady passed to S. Vereen to the left for 11 yard gain They ran the ball plenty on the last 2 drives, but they did not run the ball until they had to throw.

That's 5 total passes for the entire quarter, and all but the first one short. Guess some people just love to complain about the Pats. No, I was just complaining about you. You decided to just make #### up about them "running the ball until they had to throw." I pointed out three plays where they did not run the ball until they had to throw in the 4th quarter. Notice what I said right after that, "They ran the ball plenty on the last 2 drives, but they did not run the ball until they had to throw." I didn't need to include all the plays because my point wasn't that they didn't run the ball at all, my point was that you were just making #### up to try and prove your point. Whatever makes you feel better dude. Everyone can read the full play-by-play and see for themselves how the Pats weren't trying to "Run up the score".Whatever makes you feel better. I never said anything about, "Running up the score". You're barking up the wrong tree. Everyone can read the thread as see who was Anyone that whines about running up the score in any of the pro sports is a whiny punk, they are paid professionals, and if they don't want to be embarrassed then do your job and stop someone. It isn't on the other teams coaching staff to say I think they have had enough. Now if we are talking college, or high school sports that is a totally different thing.
