Yep, that about sums it up. Football is chess, not checkers. Always thinking ahead to your next move.

They telegraphed it to 4 billion people around the world including the defense on the other side of the line. It was a stupid play, not just in calling, but in execution.

Just my opinion. And you know what they say about opinions.....
I did hear some talking heads on the radio saying that if it had been another QB, say Romo, the QB would be getting crucified, instead of the coach. I think that is accurate.

Payton Manning didn't get bashed at all for his pick 6 in the SB from my memory or the cocah. It was hailed as a great play and not much else was said about it.

This is how I see this one as well but being on the goal line, no time, other options...say they run Lynch and he gets stuffed twice with a wide open receiver then it goes the other way. Should have thrown it blah blah.

Re: Marshawn Lynch.

It would have been great for Lynch to run it, fumble on the goal line for a touch back, game over.
Oh well, it was a great play by the DB.

That's because Payton Manning wasn't on the one yard line with three downs, a timeout, and the best RB in the NFL to win the Superbowl. Manning had what, 60 yards to cover to win the Superbowl. He had to pass.

The Colts were around the Saints 40 yd line when Manning was intercepted AND they were moving the ball.

I have no doubt that if Porter didn't make the interception the Colts would have scored and we would had our first OT Super Bowl.

This I agree with.

Not sure about the OT part of that. There was more than enough time for Brees to get the team in Field Goal range and emo-boy had already drilled 3 fields goals that day. Think the Saints would have won by 3.
