What was Colston thinking? They had 8 seconds left, probably 2 shots at the end zone.

And wasn't he right next to the sideline? Step out!

Seahawks fan here, but calls like that make me think the game is rigged. Obviously I like it cause my team won, but it's a head scratcher.

When emotion is high, sometimes logic can be low. This play certainly defines it. He steps out of bounds, the Saints still have a shot. Kind of a long shot, but a shot.

Very dumb play it seemed. Could have ran forward and stepped out and ran another. Then to throw a forward pass!?!?

Not good clock awareness.

I can understand if Colston thought time expired, which would explain why he didn't step out. What I don't understand is why he thought the blatant forward pass wouldn't be noticed by the officials.

True story. The 1 year I went to Hofstra (05/06) was Colston's last year at the school, and I actually lived in the same building on campus that he did a couple floors up from him, so I would see him around a lot, mad respect for him, not a Saints fan, but I always want them to do well because of him. However, that play was one of the stupidest plays of recent memory in the NFL. He catches the ball with about 6 seconds left right on the sidelines at about the 40 yard line I was screaming at the TV why he didn't step out of bounds. The only thing I can think of is he thought the clock had already run about, but then what he was doing with that forward pass?? It wasn't even close, it was like 2 yards forwards.
