Thumbs down the dumbest play call

The dumbest play call (I assume it was called and not an audible at the line) during the Carolina give-away loss was after McKensie got the INT and the offense was driving the ball into Carolina territory, then got into a 3rd n 8 situation in borderline field goal range and Brees tries a deep pass to Patten who was in man2man coverage. The pass wasn`t even close, Patten was covered like a wet blanket. A slant, a screen, a draw, anything that would have either picked up a 1st down or gotten 5+ more crucial yards could have been a back breaker for Carolina, but no, Brees tries a hail-mary to limp leg Patten that fails and sets up a 53 yard field goal attempt by the NFL`s worst field goal kicker. I thought it was the bonehead play call of the day.

what do you think was the bonehead play call of the day?

(and No, Payton would not be a genius if it had worked. If it had worked it would have been a dumb call that worked)

One play doesn't lose you a game.

Too bad Patten was able to knock away the interception. If Carolina intercepts the ball there we don't try a 55 yard field goal and give them the on the 45. Maybe the game goes to overtime.

Bonehead call of the day: When Payton started Brees over Palko.

No one play doesn't lose the game for you there are several you can look at that 'what if'. What lost the game for the Saints was 60 minutes of play not 4-8 seconds.

Yeah, but that play sure as hell didn't help win the game.

?!?!?!? What is that supposed to mean? I'm lost. What does draftin Bush have to do with bad calls? Drafting Bush was not a bad call. You know.....it takes teams a few years to build the franchise under a new coach. We had a great year and we all expected huge things this year. Obviously not the case. However, this is Payton's second year....I'd say he deserves a little more time before we start crucifying the guy. Drafting Bush was a piece of our foundation. We got Meachem to cover for Horn. Not really panned out well but he'll show eventually. Give it time guys. Nobody got rid oj Jimmy johnson after his first 2 seasons and looked what eventually happened for Dallas during the 90's.

Another cowboy refrence... I think I am going to puke.

You don't build a team's foundation around a Reggie Bush... you get a Reggie bush to compliment your foundation.
