    Patriots are probably low on 4th down attempts because their games have been so lopsided. Their 9 wins come with a 21.8 margin of victory.

    It’s an odd and interesting thing that a coach can be simultaneously obsessed with details and process (“one game at a time” hyper-focus, absolute minutiae-driven technically and when it comes to execution or practice ritual) and simultaneously showing complete disregard for it (“stats are for losers”, not trusting analytics eg going for it on 4th down and passing on 1st down).

    Really, all it boils down to is this:

    I trust MY FAMILIAR, HARD-EARNED minutiae, details, and process-obsession because I’M COMFORTABLE WITH IT.

    Its a complete boondoggle to not go for it on 4th and short in the overwhelming % of situations.
