How many times did the exact same thing happen to the Saints in the "Old Days". We had a team beat and snatched defeat from the jaws of victory. Buddy D made a career of pointing it out!! As someone pointed out how many times were we leading against Joe Montana and the 49ers only to watch him march the length of the field to win it!!!

It is SOOOOOO GOOOOOOOD to SEE IT HAPPEN TO SOMEONE ELSE!!!

Maybe that's why Buddy died... he could feel his "bread and butter" was going to slip away///

I'm wondering if lack of confidence in Garrett Hartley -- even for sure bets -- entered into the decision to call this play in the first place.

That crap doesn't even work in college. It summed up the Bengals season too, no attention to details. Then to top it off, letting the clock run off 10 seconds before the TO. You might as well just pat the Saints on the back before the kickoff. I'm glad we won but that kinda stuff won't happen if we get back to the playofffs.

The funny part, that makes this play work is the eagerness of Carl Sims # 96 of the Defense ( BTW Thanks Carl!!!). Interesting is the rule though change that has been made here because it is Nicks movement that makes it a penalty. If Nicks doesn't move then Sims isn't guilty and can return to his stance for the appending play or timeout.

Still, Drew is money for the heightened voice snap count and suttle flinch ( Brilliant!!) Also, I dont no if anybody saw it but Drew didn't like the run play that was called. He kill, kill called to the pass and looks like Colston's defender was lifeless and didn't even bump leaving him wide open to finish it.

It did with brees, I don't know if you noticed his lobbying skills before that play, sorta like in the Miami game last year. And I don't think anyone was more pissed with Hartley missing in Atlanta than Brees was. He pretty much did everything to get us that W and Hartley F%&6ed it up. Don't think you will see Hartley get any chances with the game on the line unless it is necessary.

Yep, if the D comes across, but doesn't make contact, and gets reset before the snap, there is no penalty. The O lineman has to jump when the D lineman comes across in order to get the flag.

No as he was willing to take the 5 yards and allow Hartley to kick the FG if we couldn't get them to jump.
