    Belichek has always had a very aggressive philosophy on going for it on 4th down. If you honestly believe that one of that one of the greatest coaches in NFL history has based this off of the NCAA's newest flavor of the month then I have some land to sell you.

    New England has been going for fewer and fewer 4th downs.

    2009 - 22 attempts
    2010 - 14
    2011 - 11
    2012 - 3

    IDK why they're not going for more. Over the years they've converted more than half of them.

    In 09, they were trying to run up the score on everyone.

    At no point did I say anything of the sort. I said that there is clear evidence (based on the fact that both coaches have discussed it) that Belichick is starting to work in some Kelly concepts into his offense. Those concepts have to do with how he gets plays called in (with the goal of running more offensive plays in 60 minutes than ever before) and they are unrelated to going for it on 4th down.
