Fake punt was Patrick Chung's idea

Whose idea was it to run a fake punt for the New England Patriots in their 28-21 playoff loss to the New York Jets?
It was safety Patrick Chung's ill-conceived plan.
Chung fumbled the snap and lost a yard, leading directly to a Mark Sanchez touchdown pass to Braylon Edwards.
"We trust the decision Patrick makes," punter Zoltan Mesko said. "It just didn’t work out in that particular occasion. That’s why the coaches trust him to run it, and that's why they give him the green light, if he has it."
What did Bill Belichick think about the decision?
Not so much.
"We just made a bad mistake," Belichick said.
