Bradshaw not kneeling on the one

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; That attempt to stop at the 1 yard line looked so half-hearted that I was wondering if he really wanted to stop before crossing the line. It could be that he wanted to run that one in the whole time ...

That attempt to stop at the 1 yard line looked so half-hearted that I was wondering if he really wanted to stop before crossing the line. It could be that he wanted to run that one in the whole time and get his name on the SB scoreboard, but made that hesitation move just to appease his coach.

Just a thought.

The whole scenario was as strange as the two head coaches. It was kind of like letting slow people play chess.

I heard on Mike & Mike this morning, that stopping short of the goal line was not even discussed during the timeout, or in the huddle. Bradshaw was told not to score as Eli was handing off the ball. I'm not sure if I could have stopped either. But, I'm with you Speedy Ron. I think I take the touchdown. Take a fieldgoal, and Brady has to move the ball 50 yards, kick a field goal for the win. Take a touchdown and Brady has to move the ball 80 yards for a TD for the win. I'll take my chances with the 80 yards.

He should have run up and down the 1 yard line until the clock said 5 seconds and then hopped in for a TD.

What happened is that the Patriots had trained for a Super Bowl against the Saints and was always going to let the Saints score late in a close game. On the basis that the Saints cant-stop-big-plays-in the last-2-minutes defence would have left Brady enough time to score easily.

no doubt in my mind that if we were the giants and had to stop them with a minute left we lose. if alex smith could do it anyone could do it.
