    That idiotic timeout will haunt me as much as...

    Nick Saban's idiotic "triple pump chump" of the review flag against the steelers...

    I am sooo tired of people who keep dwelling on that.

    We were ahead in the 4th quarter weren't we?

    If anyone is to blame it's the ST coach because they couldn't line up in time. We just had two kicks faked in the jests game. Dwelling on those 4 points when we lost by more than 4 doesn't make any sense.

    The Saints had already lined up in a fake kicking formation one time in the 1st half.

    If Ginn just makes that ONE catch in the 4th quarter this game would have been ours.

    we were down by 6 with 2 mins left to play in the 4th...

    if they kick that FG we are only down 2 and a FG wins it, YES IT WAS THE DIFFERENCE...

    our play calling is totally different on that last drive, it allows the run to be part of the plan, and we only need the 30 yard line.

    The TD instead of a FG before the half changed the momentum. It gave the Saints belief that they were going to be able to come back.

    We were still within a field goal of winning that game before Ginn drops that easy 3rd down pass that hit him in the numbers.

    If we had not called a time out who is to say that they don't fake the kick and run it in?

    They had already lined up without a kicker on a previous kick.

    I doubt they run a fake on the fly. It's possible, but why run a fake FG when you could just do a QB sneak to pick up half a yard.

    When I saw Sparano so enthusiastically jumping to call that time-out I damn near lost my mind. He couldn't get that thing out fast enough - practically saying "hear Saints please talk this over for a few, we don't think three is a good idea."

    Even Wannstedt didn't have the wherewithal to call time-out then.

    1. they weren't going to fake the fg.
    2. if we had tackled better the clock would have ran out before the fg/timeout/sneak anyway.
    3. a fan being 'haunted' by football plays is idiotic.

    again, calling the TO did not matter as they were going to go for it anyway and they would have gotten it anyway. The TO had no bearing on the outcome of that drive whatsoever
