If We Kick The Fg On The Second To Last Drive...

Against the Saints, and hold them to a 3 and out (exactly like we did.) and get the ball back with :49 seconds left.

We get to FG range and kick a game winning FG. Think it could have played out that way?

Or if we go for 2 points and get it on our final scoring drive, a FG ties it.

Any idea why we didn't at least attempt either of these possibilities?

Swamp air makes Mike Smith stupid? And remember, there was no guarantee that our field position would be that good if they were punting after we kicked off to them rather than turned it over on downs.

Mike Smith is 0-4 vs Saints in Atlanta. What is it that makes him stupid in Georgia, in your humble opinion? He seems like a pretty good coach to me.

not going for 2 really hurt, there is no difference being down 4 or 5 pts. it takes a TD to win , but if your down 2, a FG wins. Obvious coaching error.

Not necessarily. It was 28-23 before the extra point. If we miss the 2-point conversion, and the Saints score even a field goal (which they did), a touchdown would no longer tie the game. There was enough time left that I think we were looking ahead to that scenario.
