    Big Blue Was Built For The " Kill Shot "

    We all know what Bill Parcells would have done. And maybe TC should have looked inside His inner Lombardi. But thats not how the Giants roll. The offense we have today is Electric, not conservative. We expect Eli to put it up, and go for the Kill. You live by the Sword, you Die by the Sword. As long as we have Eli and Company, we will live rather well.

    I was thinking this morning that this team does rely on the big play a little too much.

    That wasn't the time nor the place for a Kill Shot. I'll give credit to Coughlin for admitting it wasn't his best call.

    Given the down, the distance, the score, the time on the clock..... the right call is a running play, or else a play-action, high percentage pass underneath to Bennett if he's open....if not, throw the ball away to stop the clock.

    Coughlin is a great coach, and he learns from his mistakes. That won't happen again under his watch.

But then again Killdrive knows best or so he thinks because we have not beaten them in 7 out of 9 games. Perhaps some day he will figure out that it is time to change from having Eli go deep on the Eagles to going short and getting YACs.
    Especially when Hixon, although he did very well, he does not have the "go up and get the ball" skills that Nicks has in that situation. He is not the right WR for that type of pass play.

    I will take my chances with Eli pulling the trigger when he thinks he has it.

    No... you're mistaken. Nor was Ahmad Bradshaw open. The fact is, they were covered up when Eli had to make a decision. When he looked that way and drew back the ball, the coverage let up. (Which leads me to another thing - I wish Eli would pump fake more. He did it more than usual in the 2007 playoffs, and it worked to perfection).

    You have to consider passing lanes, and the defensive player's ability to recover before the ball arrives. Those two guys were not open and I'm tired of hearing people say that they were.
    This is 100% correct. Indisputable actually.

    Nice I like it and agree but in hindsight after sunday I wish we were a little more conservative....but when I first saw that ball go up in the air I thought it was a TD.
