When the Saints jumped ahead to 45 - 14, they called off the dogs. They just sat on the ball the rest of the game. Late in the fourth quarter, when the Cards punted Gay laid out the only down man and Reggie could have had another return, but he fair caught it. Gay told him he had a wide open field and he waved him off, I could read his lips, "No point, man".
Minnesota Vikings were passing with a 27 - 3 lead late in the fourth quarter, so they could run up the score. Don't get me wrong, Dallas deserved it, because they talk so much trash. But it was a classless move. And it shows the differences between SP and Childress and Farve and Brees. I think Brees would have refused to run up the score even if SP would have wanted to. It was in Farve's personality to run up the score.
