I liked the call from that spot early in the game.

BUT

If we'd have kicked the FG, it would have been a 50 burger instead of a 40 burger...

We're too good to play trick 'em. Take the points and then score again, and again, and again.

Turns out we didn't need the points anyway but I don't like trick plays. Trick plays are what weak overmatched teams do.
Or what confident teams do.

I liked the call. Giants played it perfectly, credit them. But Sean Payton knows in what situation he NEEDS to put up points. They were going to torch the giants secondary all night anyway.

Loved the call even thou we didn't score. I like the agressiveness.

It was the right call - even if it didn't convert to a first down or score.

First, it reminds your team that football is fun.

Second, the play call gets the other team thinking instead of reacting; a split second in the NFL is a HUGE difference.

Third, though FG blocks are rare in the NFL - it makes the opposition stay "home" in further FG attempts...

It was early in the game and there would be plenty of more opportunities to win the game...

I thought Graham made a hell of an adjustment to get as much as he did; and judging from the body language and reaction of Daniel; it seemed the throw made have been "bad."

That's what makes us the Saints, we take risks. Sometimes it pays off big, sometimes it doesn't. I'd rather watch the Saints do that any day than some boring conservative team.

True dat

Especially since Saints-haters whinging babies were accusing the Saints of running up the score.

And this.

ANd it got the Beast into game mode. I am sure some G-men gave it to Graham then so he paid them interest.
