was intended to be a pass to Copper. Sean Payton said so on WWL while ago.
While watching, I was sure it was a bad snap to Deuce based upon Brees' fake pass motion. Great timing for a trick play, caught the Steelers off guard (no pun intended).I was wondering whether Drew was really looking for the ball or did a superior job of "selling" a direct snap to Deuce that went awry. After that I thought to myself, "We're just meant to win this one."
I think we were supposed to win.
I still think it was a trick play, but Coach P is not giving it away!
I believe that would constitute illlegal motion or illegal formation or false start. I dont think the QB or any of the backs are allowed to be moving forward during the snap.Very unlikely that was a trick play....Brees is UNDER center when the ball is snapped...Faine couldn't have gotten the ball to Deuce in the air had he been trying to. That being said, they do need to start using that play...but have Brees leaning over talking to a Guard or Tackle or a RB when they do it...that play has always been successful for Deuce.
