Re: Defending Sean Payton: Fake field goal was the right call

I had no issue with the Saints trying to put the game away. Matter of fact, it made perfect sense. IMO, the Saints would have had a better chance by just going for it with Brees behind center. A quick slant would have completely ended it. I really did not like the fake FG at that point in the game. Thank goodness the Saints defense was able to finally stop them when it counted. Pathetic to see Chris Redman tear the Saints up like he did all afternoon...

The call was absolutely absurd.
I can agree with this.

Brees to: Colston or Meachum or Bush or Henderson or Shockey or Thomas (whew that's a lot of options) would have probably been more effective.
