Should the Saints have gone for it on 4th & 1 up 21-0?

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; IMO Payton should have gone for it, either a QB sneak or give it to Ingram or Kuhn. If they stuff it, good for them. I believe the kittens would have imploded if the Saints went up 28-0....

I think we should gone for the two-point conversion to try to go up 9 in the 4th quarter vs Carolina. Why not try to get up by two scores late in the game? If you fail then oh well you are still up by 7. Saints aren't the only ones; I've seen other teams miss this opportunity in pro/college.

I also hated the Josh Hill, End Around.
If you asked me if I would love a Fleener, Jet Sweep?
I would've Slapped My Mama!
Hope it never happens again though.

Even with our patchwork O-line I believe Kuhn would have gotten one yard; he is tailor made for that situation.

I agree with you as soon as I saw it developing I was like WTH!?!?!

But it worked and that is why SP is SP. So credit to him as long as it worked.

I think they should have gone for it. We were a 1-3 team and we should play like it. Take all the chances we can to right the ship. Show faith in the Offense and say look the season is on you what are you going to do.

Yes. Defense was playing well (at that point)
