First play call from Zorn to show any sack. Word up.

Actual the way Brooks was punting that was right in his rang .

Angry must be a fan of Colt Brennan or either Tony Romo.

That's funny, now go to the store and pick yourself up some original content.

I am superstitious and if the pessimism brings wins, then JC could screw up a kneel down.

Re: 4th and 2 the Skins throw to seal the game

I like the call. You can't give the ball back to NO and let the defesne try and win it. We saw that crap too much the last few years. Even if we don't make it I still like the call. Always play to win. It was one on one and that's what Santana is paid to do. Beat your guy one on one. But it sure took some balls.

Great call--it FELT soooo good to have confidence, make the gutsy call, and hit it for the WIN!

Confidence builder.

Re: 4th and 2 the Skins throw to seal the game

I don't know if anyone has said this yet (didn't feel like reading every post), but it was a low risk play. If we punted there wasn't much room there...and it was just out of Suisham's range, so that makes the decision pretty easy. Had he missed it, and (for instance) the Saints marched down the field and scored, we'd be ready to hang Zorn. But it was not a high risk move, and the defense set was perfect to run that slant. All in all, a great gutsy move.

Re: 4th and 2 the Skins throw to seal the game

It was a gutsy play which showed how more pen the offense can be. Gibbs would never have done that. I love that we fianally took a chance to pass on 4th down.

I agree with you about Gibbs,he def would have punted.Gutsy call by Zorn,great job by team to execute it.I was driving and listening to updates on the radio and I heard the skins intercepted the ball with about 3 minutes left,and I thought to myself,great N.O. probably has all its timeouts,we"ll run 3 straight plays and then punt,and NO will have time to march down the field and score,seems like that has happenned over and over again to us,so glad it turned out different.I was all over Zorns ass last week,since I didnt see the game I'm going by what is posted,and it sounds like he had just as big of a turnaround as JC,way to go Zorn

Re: 4th and 2 the Skins throw to seal the game

I like that Zorn noted that his QB coach suggested the play call in the time out. That's very cool to me. First, he was willing to give credit where credit is due; second, he actually listened to his staff at a crucial moment.

I totally agree about the execution. What's especially nice about this, beyond icing the game, is it gives them confidence down the road in tight situations.

Symbollically it is such a departure from the Gibbs' philosophy that it has to be inspiring.

No question. Is there any doubt that Gibbs would have pooch punted in that situation? He wouldn't run, let alone throw in that situation probably 99 times out of 100.

I love Gibbs of course, but his grind it out conservatism was maddening at times. It's fun to have a coach with some kahonas.
