Leach doubts Belichick regrets going for it

Texas Tech coach Mike Leach was asked about Patriots coach Bill Belichick's decision to go for it on fourth-and-2 from the New England 28-yard line. The Patriots were six points ahead with just over two minutes left in the game. The Patriots ended up losing by one to Indianapolis.

"I didn't see it," Leach said. "I don't know the situation. It probably was a good call. The people closest to the situation made the call. ... If Belichick and his staff cared what I thought or anybody else thought about it, we would have been asked earlier in the week or asked to their meetings. Our opinion would have been considered and evaluated.

"They didn't care what we thought. They didn't ask us as they shouldn't care. I would doubt that they regret going for it. They may have wished they called a different play or executed differently. I doubt they regret doing it."
