Question about the last play

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; What I can tell you about the play is I never have seen an official whistle the play dead when it was a forward pass, usually a flag thrown and play continues. Maybe for better it was whistled? I dunno. ...

I have never seen it a 10 second run off either.

I know it wouldn't have counted because Colston threw a forward pass; I guess I have to spell everything out!

If Colston had legally, correctly gotten the ball to Cadet, would he have scored?

Colston had to be thinking the clock had run out. But to answer your question...

I don't think so, there were a few Seahawks on that side of the field. If they were trying for the River City Miracle, I thought Colston had some room to move around. He should have run with the ball a second or two more to attract some defenders to him and away from other Saints.

No, he wouldn't have scored. If you look at the play you will see something that our D lacks, discipline. Seattle's D accounted for everyone on the field and stayed with their man or their assigned zone. Cadet might have made 5 yards if the lateral was legal.

Yes Sir, You are correct, Sir!

Muscle and Speed are two distinct qualities; together they are lethal, and guided by intelligence and wisdom, unstoppable...

The reason Cadet ran in front of Colston is because they had a guy covering him. I watched the play again and there was a CB right on top of him.

Sorry I misinterpreted your post. No need to get testy.
