  • Eli thought they had the first down.

    Said it in his presser, "Hakeem usually gets the 1st down, I thought he was past the marker" and mentioned that by the playcall (which came in from Gilbride, obviously), everyone thought they had the first down, otherwise they would've run a short yardage play.

    So... I'm not saying they're free of blame, but it does explain wtf happened.

      That's because they had the 1st down.




      Why coudn't they challenge that spot? B/c it was in the last 2 min of the half?

        He also said he though we got the first bc of the call from the sidelines....which means they thought we had the first as well.

          that's right.

          but they could have called a time out and asked for a measurement.
          problem is no-one on the coaching staff noticed that 1st down was never indicated by the zebras, nor that yardage/down marker said 3 not 1.
          due to the fact that I am from the Woodstock generation ...

                We ran a quick play due thinking it was a first down and were in hurry up offense. That makes more sense. Had he known it was marked short, could of called timeout to give booth time to review it.
                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-

                # of Super Bowl victories since 1985:

                1-Chicago, St. Louis, Tampa Bay, Indianapolis, New Orleans, Seattle
                2-Washington, Green Bay, Pittsburgh, Baltimore
                3-San Francisco, Dallas, Denver
                4-New York Giants!!!
                5-NE
                Let's make it 5 in 2016 so we can be on a LINE NE again!!!
