Brees needs another play band on his other arm with the time and picture of the pick that says NO.

I understand the argument that the D was too gassed to risk OT. But how can you say that going for the win right there was the right thing to do? If the D is too gassed for OT then how were they supposed to stop Ryan, Julio, and Sanu with a minute and a half plus two timeouts. They would have went through us like a hot knife through butter. I say run the ball two, maybe three times and kick the FG if you don't get in. At least then there's the chance that the D never has to set foot on the field again if we win the toss and score a TD. Or at the very least they have a little time to catch their breath if the falcons won the toss. Using the D was tired argument to justify going for the win doesn't work. Less time on the clock I get it but not a minute and a half with a D that could barely move at this point.

Should Drew throw that pass tp Hill? debatable

I want to point out Hill did a poor job of defending the interception. Hill is a back up and probably never be more than that and the fan love for him needs to calm down.

TE needs to be addressed.
