Remember, I'm also in the camp that says that coaches should go for it more on 4th down, and I still defend Belichick's decision against Indy.
Belichick vs Indy was absolutely the right call. Smith was certainly more questionable especially in the full context, which i never really looked at. I may just default to defending coaches that go for it when people rip them after the fact. Also the play that was called could be really bad, undermining the decision to go for it.
Mike Smith is a very good coach who has made a few bad decisions
all coaches make a few bad decisions of course. Besides Belichick, the Harbaughs and Payton, there aren't many guys I put over Smith.
