I don't know about you but I was screaming at the TV after teh horrible spot which would have ended the game before all of the drama at the end.
Could Coughlin have challenged that??? Would have been worth a time out?

He still would have been short. He was nowhere near the first down.

Not in the last two minutes. I am not sure what the rule is on horrible spots in the last two minutes.

It should have been reviewed. Even Aikman said it was a bad spot. You may need to get your eyes examined.

He still would have been short if they gave him the correct spot. It wasn't even close.

He had the first down, ref may have been in the wrong spot to see well but he is laying on the ground. Ball was spotted a yard back for some unknown reason and because it's within 2 minutes no challenge possible.

Well, I guess that's that then.

Should have given the ball to Brown, who had 21 yards on 3 measly carries.

Bradshaw is once again injured, once again not practicing, and therefore, I expect him to continue to struggle.

I thought the spot was right on to be honest.

should not have been a run in that situation anyway.
we have to be the only team in the NFL that doesn't have
a 4 yard pass play.

all we seem to have are no gainers or 30 yarders.

Watch the play again. Bradshaw is on top of the defender and not down. The ball should have been at least 1/2 yard ahead of where is was spotted, and would have been real close on a measurement.

we seem to make it super hard and throw a low percentage throw to Nicks... back shoulder or some crap on 8-12 yards out... your right.. we can't get 4 freaking yards!!! Kills me..
