    Even if he's down in the middle of the field, at that point there's plenty of time to clock the ball. There would have been at least 15-20 seconds to get down the field and do so.

        The point comes down to..the Giants should've never been in the position to let clock management or anything determine the outcome other than the Eagles coming right out and whooping their tales. The Giants made crucial mistakes that had them once again playing for the win in the 4th quarter. This time it didn't pan out.

            I thought it was the greatest pass I've ever seen Eli throw, far outweighing his throw to Manningham in the SB last year or the Helmet catch to Tyree. Someone should make it into a .gif so we can enjoy it over and over again.

            Come on dude, what kind of question is that?? It was a horrible pass. What other possible answer could there be for that question......

              Cost us an additional 15-20 seconds which we could have used to run 1 more play, get a little bit closer and make a closer field goal.

              Anyone with even half a brain who has played Madden once or twice in their lives knows you use the timeouts BEFORE the two minute warning in a goal line situation and not AFTER the two minute warning.

              Terrible clock management cost us this game more than the passing interference.

              Put the blame where it belongs folks!

                You're blaming Coughln for the loss. A loss is never attributed to one individual. A lot of things went wrong that created that loss including Barden's penalty, Eli's interception, lack of a running game, etc.. Teams win and teams lose.

                        He wasn't overrated in 2003......when I joined this board. Where were you back then? Just curious.


                        BTW.......Coughlin did a fantastic job of having the team ready to play both physically and emotionally again today but dammit, he completely blew the clock management AGAIN at the end of the first half!

                        On 4th down, he called a timeout with 15 seconds left and a full playclock to try and attempt our FG at the end of the first half.

                        Why on earth he called timeout with 15 seconds left instead of running it down to 1 or 2 seconds and kicking the ball, since it was 4th down, I will NEVER know but it nearly cost us 3 points!
                        '
                        After the block field goal, San Fran ran one play and completed a 30+ yard pass and put Akers well within range for a field goal that would have made it 10-6 going into the half. Thankfully he missed for the second time in the game, but again, that was piss poor clock management by Coughlin.

                        A small gripe on an otherwise fantastic day but come on Tom, gotta get better with that buddy! There was absolutely no reason whatsoever not to run that clock down to 1 or 2 seconds to kick that ball. Anyone care to disagree with THAT point?
