Run the ball three times
Run out clock

Get td running
Or take the field goal

Payton is too "put the dagger in" greedy instead of smart

The refs beat us. Terrible throw by Brees but the refs killed us.

But we blew it at the end when it was well in our grasp

Should have seen this coming, Payton refused to run the ball for much of the second half.

I hated the call from Payton - that pass was designed for Jimmy Graham to the tight end. Hill is NO Jimmy Graham. He's supposed to go up and wrestle for the pass. Either it's a PI or a catch.

0 points off of 3 INT’s killed us. We could’ve had a foot on their throat before the 4th quarter even started.

Re: 1st and goal 1:43 left

I don't agree with this thinking at all. We're on a short week, our defense is gassed, we had a ton of injuries and we have a HoF QB. Throwing the ball was the absolute right thing. Drew just made a terrible decision throwing a jump ball to Hill. If you want to criticize SP, he deserves to be crushed for not having a plan B once Kamara went down.

I don't get it, I just don't get it. Even if we score there we give the ball back to Ryan with 1:30 left on the clock, a defense that's sucking wind and two timeouts. RUN THE DAMNED BALL, RUN THE DAMNED CLOCK DOWN AND IF YOU DON'T GET IN THE DAMNED ENDZONE KICK THE DAMNED FIELD GOAL AND TAKE YOUR DAMNED CHANCES IN OT!!!!!

I agree. Both RBs were injured so he let the future Hall of Famer take the reins. Terrible pass, though. That should’ve been a corner fade...
