Esiason on D&C: 'Bill just being Bill'

CBS Sports NFL analyst Boomer Esiason made his weekly appearance on the Dennis & Callahan show Monday morning to talk about the Patriots' 23-20 victory over the Chargers. The hot topic from the game is Bill Belichick's decision to have the Patriots go for it on fourth-and-1 from midfield.

 

"I guess it was Bill just being Bill, and he can take chances like that," Esiason said, adding: "It's not the decision I would have made. I would have punted the ball and I would have said, 'Defense, go stop them.' "

 

Esiason said BenJarvus Green-Ellis had a chance to alter the play and get the first down. "I think when Benny goes back and looks at that play, he's going to see that there was a little cutback lane back behind the center," Esiason said. "Benny sometimes is a little robotic. He gets the ball and he goes straight ahead and he's a hard runner and nobody ever wants to take away his...

Mashup: Devil of a time for Kovalchuk in NJ

After Ilya Kovalchuk signed a $100 million contract with the Devils, big things were expected in New Jersey. It hasn't started out so well. The team is off to its worst start in two decades at 2-6-1, first-year coach John MacLean can't find the right linemates for his star winger, and Kovalchuk was benched Saturday night for an undisclosed reason. Speculation centers around a missed team meeting. Read more about story and others, plus check out video, trivia and more, at Monday's Morning Mashup.

Vote: Did Pats make right call on 4th-and-1?
By: admin

Another year, another questionable fourth-down call ... albeit one with less controversy, since the Patriots beat the Chargers on Sunday, 23-20.

 

A little less than a year after the Patriots lost to the Colts after they went for it on fourth-and-2 from their own 28-yard line, New England again elected to go for a first down rather than punt with roughly two minutes remaining in the game. The Patriots again were stopped, this time on a run on fourth-and-1 that gave the Chargers the ball on the Patriots' 48-yard line.

 

A missed field goal saved the Patriots from having to agonize over whether they made the right call. But, that task now falls to you.

Brady on 4th-and-1: 'I'll go for it every time'

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, asked about the decision for his team to go for it on fourth-and-1 when leading, 23-20, with two minutes left in the game at their own 49-yard-line, said that he agreed wholeheartedly with the attempt to pursue the first down. Even though the Patriots' failure to convert left the team vulnerable to a game-tying field goal -- which Chargers kicker Kris Brown clanged off the right upright in the game's final minute -- Brady reasoned that the Patriots could have run out the clock by converting the play. He suggested that the offense -- rather than the decision to go for it -- was what put the New England lead in jeopardy.

 

"I’ll go for it every time," Brady told reporters. "We get the first down, the game’s pretty much over. You punt it back to them, they’ve got three timeouts with two minutes left, they’ve only got to go 60 yards. If you get the yard, it’s going to be...
