And in 2001, as Swiss will remind everyone, why did the Patriots get that re-punt?

Because BILL BELICHICK noticed from film study that Troy Edwards repeatedly ran out of bounds when going downfield on punts, and alerted the officials to watch for it.

THE OPPOSING COACH noticed...our own coach didn’t. We had STs problems all season long, and they were never fixed.

Minor nitpick...we won Super Bowl XIV by the most points (12), not Super Bowl XL (11 points).

The theme that the opposing coaches were stupid while the Pats coaches were smarter is a theme though.

John Fox chasing points in Super Bowl XXXVIII. Had he not done that, the Panthers are leading 31-28 when Casey’s kick goes OOB, so at worst, the game is headed to overtime.

Andy Reid and his horrendous clock management, assisted by a puking Donovan McNabb.

Pete Carroll eschewing the run against the worst short yardage defense in the NFL that year.

And Dan Quinn being STUPID AGGRESSIVE late in Super Bowl LI. Run three times...bleed Patriot timeouts...kick FG...go up by 11...win game. That’s all he needed to do there.

Even Doug Pederson...as smart as he was the whole game...made a critical error that luckily was negated by Bill Belichick making a dumber one on the ensuing kickoff.

Pederson had an opportunity to make sure the Patriots never got the ball again and secure a 38-33 victory.

2:03 left- 2nd down and 5. Pederson should have called a safe pass play to try and get the first.

He gets the first...game over. Three knees and run out the clock. Win.

He doesn’t get the first...the Eagles are in the same position as they are if they run the ball on second down.
