The Patriots' trade of Moss to the Vikings represents everything I despise about NFL "conventional wisdom" and the New England Patriots organization.

American soccer's Anglophilia always has and always will confuse me. Take one listen to ESPN analyst and former U.S.-team star John Harkes, and you'll hear it in his lilt; that weird accent of his wasn't cultivated in his childhood home near Newark, New Jersey.

If the Patriots had converted on 4th down, they would have had roughly a 100% chance of winning the game. If they didn't, they probably had somewhere between a 15-50% chance of winning.

Belichick Was Right

The advanced stats back up Belichick. 38 yards in field position is not worth giving up a 60% opportunity to keep Peyton Manning on the sidelines.

Belichick Made the Right Call

The announcers were unanimous in saying the Patriots were crazy to go for it on 4th down. I hate to say it, but I think Belichick's move might have made sense.
