I was wondering what play Sean had called off of it, I'm just happy to see Sean dipping into his bag of tricks again, seems to be missing most of the season

Gutsy play calling... Sean will do anything to win a game he has to win.

We didn't do a play out of it but that is all we needed to let other teams know we have a play dialed up and ready to go. So teams have to take time to spend and be ready to defend it. Less time practicing for the next play Sean will dial up.

Euphoria did you break the coffee table ????

Even without running the play, it was a GREAT call. It forced Pit to use their time-out.

Plus it puts something out there that other teams have to prepare for during Saints week that takes time away from their normal practice time when preparing for the Saints

omg. i cant believe after 2 pages of posts im the first to say it was a dumb call. why? they had a time-out! if they had no time-outs, awesome call. w/ a time-out left, its pointless. it looked awesome for all of five seconds, then tomlin called a time-out. duh.

I was glad the Steelers called that time out, the FG was the way to go that early in the game. I honestly believe they really had no intention on running the fake, they were way too slow at lining it up. I think it was one of those things to just put something else in the Steelers heads. No one in their right mind would fake in that situation. However, with that being said, we are talking about Sean Payton... LOL

That's exactly what would have happened. We would have burned one of our time-outs just before the play clock ran down. 4th and four, hoping to get a 5-yard offsides penalty for a 1st down. As trigger happy as Sean Payton is, I just don't think he would have come away from that field position with nothing left but his underwear after a failed razzle-dazzle and no points. It would have looked like that fake-dive, end-around bobble-a-boo-boo to Colston "please let me not drop this thing" attempted pass to Henderson that ends in a QB-slide for +1...we needed 4.
