The probability is that a standard emergency return to the airport (as briefed) will provide a higher success rate than attempting some unpractised, non standard, poorly planned alternative.
I agree, no need to panic. As someone pointed out earlier use V-2 for approach speed and perform the checklists as 411A pointed out. If the blasted engine falls off, it falls off. Hopefully not injuring anyone on the ground.
