What we learned after the Saints' playoff win against the Panthers

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I am not going to complain about Payton's 4th down call. He tried, it failed. Remember the 4th down in the second game? People probably thought 'for chrissakes Payton, kick a goddamn field goal. Kamara punched it in and we ...

I am not going to complain about Payton's 4th down call. He tried, it failed. Remember the 4th down in the second game? People probably thought 'for chrissakes Payton, kick a goddamn field goal. Kamara punched it in and we all thought it was great. I will not knock him. If it was on our own 20 yard line? May have been a teensy bit annoyed.

Ill take this Payton with balls over the conservative Payton we had the last three years. That being said they are not going to work all the time but it has won us games this year so I am not going to cry win it fails. It looked like the defense was getting tired so he went for it.

See the first third down play and the last fourth down play.

He cares more for his shine than he does the team's success.
That last 4th down play is why I love Payton. He plays to win the game. You essentially give yourself 2 chances to finish the game, one on defense and one on offense. I could care less about the percentages at that point, we have one of the most clutch QB's in NFL history. Do you want Michael Jordan taking the final shot or some rookie who has had a good year. Yes it didn't play out like we wanted but in the end the rookie aka our defense came through. We held on d in the red zone but they were doing a great job driving down the field all game. Loved the 4th down attempt on offense to finish it right there, most coaches don't have the balls and would be to worried about post postgame backlash and play it safe. I think it's the opposite of being about him.

3rd down efficiency this year is a real problem, and now they HAVE to do better there in these next games to keep winning.

TOTAL BS. They are talking about it on NFL channel right now. You stumble like a drunk in Mardi Gras, you go to the locker room

Re: What we learned after the Saints' playoff win against the Panthers

A Saints W is a Saints W. I'll take a W that ugly or nerve racking or close any day.
I would prefer to do without this kind of "on the edge " excitement.
There is no next week during these post season games.

What have I learned?
Same thing throughout the season.
I would them to W , but early on in the 1st and 2nd qrtr. Score high. Big lead. Keep it up. Saints won this game, but IF, IF CPanths had more time, they could have won too.


On to MiniVikings this week.
I want the Saints to W any way they can, but I sure would like them to be a big threat and win big and win early and win easy.

It's not that *****y at all. If we lost this game I would have called out his heart. You have to keep your foot on the throat. What I saw down the stretch reminded me of the week 6 game last season. And giving them two field goals around the halfway point is uncalled for.
