As I've mellowed with age, I don't scream or throw things at the TV anymore. But it drives me into an apoplectic seizure every time Eli has to piss away a perfectly good timeout because the play clock is running down.
I mean, COME ON!! We have a veteran QB working with the same staff for the past 9 years. This sort of thing should happen maybe once or twice a season, not once or twice a game. And I don't want to hear from the Gilbride haters that it's all his fault. This is a solvable problem and Coughlin has let it continue systemically for too long. It's everybody's fault, including Eli.
I'm not even asking for the Giants to go no-huddle, even though Eli is masterful at running it. It's a weapon Coughlin rarely chooses to use. Fine, I got it. But when you take every second off the play clock, all you do is give the opposing defense time to breathe and make substitutions. There's a broad trend in the NFL toward running plays quickly and you will see more of it this year, especially against the Giants.
How many times this year will I hear a booth guy say, "there's just no excuse for that"?
