Les Miles' little creek ran dry. If we keep having to go to the well, it won't be long before ours dries up too. We should have blown these people out. The Bungles did exactly what we were all hoping they would do...they just handed it to us. As the clock was ticking down, all of us had that dark place in our minds that we really didn't want Payton to shine his light - and we all know he is capable of it.

I remember thinking .....oh God no! The only thing about these little trick plays is that eventually you can wind up tricking yourself.

It was totally the right call to line up on 4th and 2 and take delay of game, the way that Hartley has problems kicking close ones.

What a nice gift, thanks Bungles!

lol, and the cool thing about bluffing in poker or football and winning, is the next coach will be even more confused, giving you a better chance for success. Thinking " Why is fricken Payton doing that play again!! He knows that I know what hes knows,,,, errr or do I?".

The next DC will probably tell everyone to play the ball on 4th, but that the DL should freeze and dont try to get a jump on the ball. Giving us a jump on the defense for a 1-2 yard 4th down run play.
