One other thing... Clock management is getting worse

Why in the world are we calling timeouts at the goal line with almost a minute left in the game? Talk about doing the Saints a favor. Mike Smith continues to be a bumbling idiot when the game is on the line.

Totally agree. That was beyond horrible. I mean time out with 52 seconds left? We knew we had two more plays and that was it. Why not let it run down to 20 seconds? I have just learned to live with these decisions at the end of the game. There always going to happen, it's just what Smitty does. Well never know but if Jackson makes that catch, the saints still have 45 seconds and a timeout to get in field goal range. Not that hard for Drew Brees IMO.

Not making excuses for Coach Smith but I think he wanted to make sure the plays he wanted were called. Had not Ryan been rushed, Tony G. was open a second earlier. At that point the coach is more concerned with calling a play and making sure people know where there suppose to be. He wants the lead more than the time.

I understand and agree with your point Robert, we should be able to call a play and not worry about someone going out when they are suppose to stay in and block.

No one should be surprised about how our Offensive line played!!
