If you’re still upset that Bill Belichick and his Patriots went for it on 4th and 2, at least some jerks at UC Berkeley wrote a journal paper that agrees with the call.

Confused? Anything below the solid line means go for it. So basically anywhere on the field, you always go for when it’s 3 yards or less. Full article here. Another simplified version here.

Recap:

  • 4th and 1, own 30: GO FOR IT
  • 4th and 2, own 30: GO FOR IT
  • 4th and 3, own 30: GO FOR IT
  • 4th and 4, own 30: GO FOR IT

Relax. Bill Belicheck is still god.
