MIKE SMITH NEEDS TO LEARN WHEN YOU FACE A TEAM WITH A TOP TIER OFFENSE YOU DONT PUNT IT TO THEM ON 4TH DOWN YOU PLAY TO WIN THE GAME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I DONT CARE HOW THE OFFENSE HAS PLAYED MATTY ICE HAS WON AND MADE MULTIPLE PLAYS ON THE 4TH DOWN GIVE THE BALL TO YOUR BEST PLAYERS NOT YOUR DEFENSE JUST BECAUSE YOUR A DEFENSIVE COACH

I agree.. Go for it .. whats the worst case scenario we dont get it and they are in field goal range if our defense stops em ..

agreed, he is going to catch so much shit for that call.......
One of the few bad decisions he has made this year

Yes, the Falcons D played lights out but they started moving the ball towards the end of the game so going for it would've been the better move.

I was surprised they punted, not really sure why you would want to give the ball to Brees with that time left just seemed stupid ohwell last time we lost we went on a 8 game winning streak

I hate the call, but our offense wasn't really lighting it up.

It all boils down to New Orleans needed this game and the Falcons really didn't, that's why the offense was so vanilla - I can guarantee you they held back just in case they see them in the playoffs
In the end it's a 3 point loss to one of the better teams in the league and it will probably help motivate the Falcons moving forward

We were near midfield and if we didn't make it, defense still would've needed a 3 & out - punt (most likely get ball back at the 20 if we can make the stop).

Ryan was horrible. His throws were all off tonight. McClure cost us 7 points.
