Play to win the game....

This is what happens when you don't play to win the game.

1st and 10 on the 15 yd line and you run the kicker out, that's playing to not screw up. Taking the ball out of your Pro Bowl QB's hands and wanting to kick is not playing to win, it's worrying that you won't win. I have yet to ever see that mentality or coaching strategy ever serve a team well.

Something is off with Drew and Payton's play calling, lack of faith or something in their playmakers it seems. It doesn't help that ol' Stone Hands Henderson showed up today and for some reason Meachem isn't being allowed to stretch the field at all like last year.

It was the right call. What you have done if we fumbled or threw an int?
You'd be the first one saying we should have kicked the FG.

It was a team loss. We need to learn from it and move on.

Still, there is enough blame to go around in that locker room.

Only Brees, Moore and Shockey can hold their heads up.
All would tell Hartley that it wasn't his fault.

No doubt Hartley blew the winning kick. I thought the interference call on Greer was another bone headed call by the ref that cost us the game too.

We lost as a team. Period.

coach made the right call. you dont try to score a td when you can end the game with a chip shot. if we go for the td and someone gets injured everyone would be saying "why didnt we kick it". hartley is absolute garbage. had someone not deflected his kick last week he would have missed that one too. what really sucks is, who are we going to pick up at this time of the year? if your not on a team its for a reason

Anybody think somebody got to Hartley about changing the outcome of the game?
New Orleans is a big Mafia town. Just saying...
