Everyone will blame JUJU but that fake punt call was garbage.



True there's lots of things that happen in a game.  But that fumble was an epic fail.  Especially since they were already in FG range.

The fake punt call was irrelevant.  Maybe the Saints would led a clock draining TD drive and the Steelers never even get a chance to get the ball back.


The fumble cost them the game, period.


One is a poor coaching decision, the other is just a player on the other team making a great play.


How many 80 yard drives did the Saints have in that game?  How likely is it after they reshuffled their offensive line after an injury? 


There is no reason to fake a punt in your own territory in that game situation, on top of the ridiculous down and distance.


Too many coaches are afraid of being too conservative, to the point where they do flat out dumb things.
