Anyone else notice that the Saints almost figured out the only way to lose the game last night?
They took over on the Atlanta 46 yard line with 1:42 left and Atlanta with 1 timeout left. If they kneel 3 times, that would take about 82 seconds or 1:22 (because of an Atlanta time out on one of the downs). So, Atlanta would get the ball deep in their own territory with just 20 seconds to go and losing by 11 points.
But, the Saints decide to run a play. Their center gets injured, requiring them to take a timeout. Next play, Atlanta calls a timeout. Next play, the ball is stripped and the clock stops with 1:23 on the clock. All 3 plays did not look like much of an attempt to even get a first down.
WTF? Why not just kneel down? Anyone know what they were thinking?
