Question about the last play

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Since it looked like a re-make of the Music City Miracle, IF Colston had gotten the ball to Cadet, would he have scored? It looked like on the replay that about 3 or 4 seattle defenders got to the area ...

Question about the last play

Since it looked like a re-make of the Music City Miracle, IF Colston had gotten the ball to Cadet, would he have scored?

It looked like on the replay that about 3 or 4 seattle defenders got to the area fairly quickly.

Designed or not, IMO Colston should have stepped out of bounds.

Utter foolishness. No play if it involves another forward pass.
All if and buts are redundant.

Yea, it wouldn't have counted because it was a forward pass. I would have rather Colston get out of bounds and try the hail mary. You never know what might happen.

Re: Question about the last play

I'm sure Colston thought the play had taken too long too long to develop and the clock was running out. Since he was the only received who showed up, and the one who recovered the onside kick to even put us in possible miracle state, nothing but love for him.

Don't put yourself in that position.

Laces out.
Fumble on your 20.
On and on and on...

We gave this one away. Again.

Re: Question about the last play

I was impressed with the way the defense played. Our problem is speed and no OL. Our receivers can make catches, but can't break away from DB's. Don't get me wrong, I love Colston, Stills, Meacham, etc., but we need speed IMO. We can't blame the game on weather cause Seattle made plays. Jimmy was shut down cause we couldn't get the ball to other receivers, Seattle has too much speed. I may be wrong and get harsh replies after this, but it's what I see. We have a young team and they are in the growing process. Hopefully we get better for next year and get our 2nd Supper Bowl!

We have speed. What we didn't see was muscle.

Re: Question about the last play

Good article, but like I said, we could not get open to make any yards when we needed to. Drew was off some, but made pass's more than Wilson cause he is a better QB. Yeah, without the weather issue, it would have definitely been a different outcome. But I will stick with no speed to get open, or no quick moves to fool DB's. Drew should have been able to break records against Seattle...he's that good, and the Saints are that good. Bush cost us with a head shot. I agree that stupid penalties went a long way in the game also. You can't do stupid stuff like that.
