  • Clockgate

    with the clock at 10 seconds, the Boys ran 2 plays that per my stopwatch took 11 seconds, yet their own employee running the clock both started it late and stopped it early saving them 2 seconds and leaving them with one final play that should have never happened

    this same type of thing happened to the Jets vs. NE

    it's time for the NFL to have an employee starting and stopping the clock, not a team employee

      And that comeback from the Cows shouldn't have happened either.

          in the NFL teams comeback ... games are decided by only a few points on average ... nobody should be shocked that a talented NFL team did not simply roll up in the fetal position and cry and quit ... welcome to the NFL ... you'll catch on

          and we were only favored by 1.5, so we exceeded outsiders expectations ... i think we have some spoiled fans b/c of how great we are

            Yeah that needs to be in control of the NFL. The refs do constantly have to ask to have the game clock reset so obviously they are doing their own timekeeping... No need in 2012 for there to be two systems.

              You watch games with a stop watch? Damn

              Even with that, the "official time" is kept on the field by an official. I think that's the Line Judge

                    Hey Buddy, I was the one who said our O-line was underrated and our defense. I was one of the posters who said the Giants were going to beat the 49ers. My track record is way better than yours. You'll catch on soon I hope.

                      I was just thinking I'd probably break it as it passed through the TV Screen..

                        I also thought the official time was suspect in those last few seconds and what about the spot on Bradshaws 3rd down run where they marked him just short which forced us to punt. I thought he was marked short of where he actually landed.

                          I love it Clock gate, Did seem like they were able to run a ton of plays. The pass to whitten along the side line only took 4 secs, which shocked me at the time. Something else to have the NFL spend tons of time on ...

                            The last time the Giants had the ball they ran a running play that took two seconds. No way possible. Definitely some home cooking. Cowboys used to get the calls big time when they were a good team (a long time ago). Looks like there is still some manipulation going on.

                              That actually was correct. when Dez landed and the play was over the clock was at 10seconds. Then it kept running and an additional 4 seconds ticked off. so they were right on that one
                              Football has been very, very good to us.
                              After losing seasons 2013-15, the giants put up 11 wins in 16.. they are on way Back
                              But for now we can console ourselves with this fact-
