I dunno about the "Belichoke" moniker, PK - he's got a pretty decent record overall last time I checked. This isn't the first time he's gone for it in a similar situation - he did it earlier this year in the Falcons game, and he's done it in the past. If it works, he's a genius, if it doesn't, well I guess it's time to sell the franchise and start looking into getting a WNBA team, right? The defense was pretty well used up by the 4th, that's true, but the philosophy right along has been to let the best player try to get the job done at crunch time, and Brady's the best player they have. Nothing wrong with that. The "brief" handshake is pretty much SOP for Belicheck no matter who the other guy is.
