I agree with Norm on this one. They abandoned their best player at the wrong time. LT can break it from anywhere at anytime.
yeah, thats fine if the passing game isnt working, but Brees was doing ok and they were moving the ball on us just fine, the run was going no where and they were able to pass with ease at times, also remember we held the ball a lot of the second half so that had something to do with it too.
Now i do think they should have used LT when they had 1st and goal, maybe even twice down there. But my commenets where directed more at the chargers play calling for the whole second half cause norm was saying LT only got 7 carries the whole second half.
How many posessions did they have in the second half, only 4 !!!!!
they had 2 possessions in 3rd quarter and they scored TD and FG, not bad play calling IMO. They had to seetle for FG cause false start penalty put them in 3rd and 8, no i wouldnt run LT on 3rd and 8.
4th quarter they had 1 possession where they went 3 and out and they did run LT on 2nd down.
Next possession they are down by 4 with 3 minutes left, they moved the ball to Dallas 7 by passing. with still over a minute left, thats pretty good play calling. So i can agree that SD should have given LT a shot during that 1st and goal series from the seven. But to say they had bad offense play calling for the second half, i just dont see that.
