Falcons Coach Smith Still Thinks Call Was Right

Atlanta Falcons head coach Mike Smith still says if he had to do it over again, he’d still make the call on fourth and one that cost his team the game against the New Orleans Saints on Sunday.

Smith opted to keep his offense on the field on fourth and inches at the Falcons 29 on their second possession of overtime.  Running back Michael Turner was stuffed for a loss on the play and the Saints’ John Kasay kicked a 26 yard field goal to give New Orleans a crucial 26-23 win.

Smith pointed out the Falcons converted a similar play earlier in the game which eventually led to a touchdown.

Smith said the Falcons simply didn’t execute in overtime.
