Bradshaw not kneeling on the one

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; im wondering why that was so stupid?? Say he does take a kneel and they have to kick a field goal. that means the are only up by one with 20-30 seconds left in the game. brady completes 2 passes ...

First of all they do not have to kick the FG it was 2nd down.

Chances are still good of them running it in on the next play... I know not a given but they had been able to control the line and run the ball.

I don't think many or calling it stupid! But I love the fact that every cell in your body... all of your life has been trained as a RB to get in the end zone. Now biggest game of your life you're told to fall down at the goal line. What a dilemma for the guy. Instinct one out...

Perhaps the stupid part was Brady's Saftey or maybe they should have let the Giants score sooner.

It wasn't just him...

There were only like 2 other Giants that were excited and celebrated Bradshaw's TD.

The rest looked at him like he had just fumbled and lost the game.

If you get stuffed on the next play or you fumble or the FG gets blocked or just missed, Bradshaw is remembered forever as the idiot who blew the Super Bowl. He gets to see himself compared with Bill Buckner, Chris Webber, Jacky Smith, and Scott Norwood for the rest of his life.

I would not want the TD. Force the timeouts and get that clock down as far as you can. Odds of Brady marching a comeback with 5 seconds left probably around 1%. Odds with a TO and almost a minute, I'm guessing 30 45%. If your kicker can't make basically an extra point to win the game then you should lose. If you watch the last heave that ball was almost caught.

That is to much hindsight...

You are playing and anticipating... they anticipated correctly NE was giving them the score. The odds were in Giants favor and they felt good about it. So it was the right call just instincts were just harder to overcome...
