  • Also , why is no one talking about BB taking time out with 4 seconds to go before the 2 minute warning in the superb owl ?
    I just thought it was odd.

    Great point. Sam Gould from Fieldgulls definitely criticized that in his video about how the Eagles offense dismantled the Pats D. He also criticized Pederson for not trying a pass after Belichick took the TO. There would be no risk of wasting the 2 minute warning, I think it might have been 2:03 so Foles could've sat back there a few seconds and taken the clock down to the 2 min anyway and ice the game if they got a first down.

    Lets say 5 seconds run off the clock for each play. The defense has 1 TO, 1st down has just finished, the clock is running and there is 2:04 left in the game.

    Scenario 1
    Defense takes timeout - 2:04 on clock, 2nd down
    Offense runs ball, 1:59, 3rd down clock stops for 2 min warning


    Scenario 2
    Defense lets clock run to 2 min warning, 2nd down
    Offense runs ball, at 1:55 defense calls timeout, 3rd down

    Better to take timeout immediately
