Turning that logic, would you trade the 2 yards for a first down instead?
In almost all cases, yes.
He screwed up

I'd rather have a 2nd and 3 than a 1st and 10.
You rather have 2 downs than 3? You saw how hard it was for us to get a half yard ? And Carolina themselves had a hard time getting 3rd and shorts. I think payton was just trying to get more yards for drew to shut up that secondary.

Who's soft now!

He had Drew and Meachem in his fantasy league.

2nd and 3 - need 1.5 yards on each down
1st and 10 - need 3.34 yards on each down

Am I going to get upset with Sean Payton for believing his offense can get 3 yards in 2 plays? No.

To me the biggest brain fart was dropping in a prevent on Carolina's 4th and goal from the 17.

I saw the prevent alignment and was 100% certain it would result in a TD.

Worst defensive play in football.

Re: Sean Payton Brain Fart

I was quite fine with the 2nd-and-3. Collinsworth made WAY too big of a deal whining about it. 2nd and 3 should be very convertible by our offense ... a decent running play in any direction or a simple out by Graham, our WR's or Sproles should pick up that 3 yards easily. Gotta give the Carolina D props on holding us in that situation.

I liked the call. We were marching on them no problem. Tea leaves were saying we get the 1st down.
