    I think Ragtime was talking more generally than this game particularly. Either way, his point is that we do tend to burn quite a few timeouts because we don't have enough time to get set at the line.

    the timeouts were fine it was the refs bad call on Barden that contributed to losing the game imo!
    That wasn’t a bad call. Barden should have had the OPI called against him because he basically gaggle ****ed Ashamouga to stop him from picking off the bad throw from Eli.

    I don't know if you noticed, but there was a black unicorn running free in the Eagles secondary on the Barden opi play.

    They had to go to the sideline to stop the clock

    Coughlin alone did not LOSE us the game - all 53 did including the coaches. Thats said Tom almost always uses those TO's pre 2 minute warning and while many on here are just going crazy with the OP's side points - the point about taking those time outs pre 2 minute warning is a valid one. Yes more time would have helped - and we can certainly look at that going fwd - but to blame the loss on this alone is just not fair. Again it is valid and could have saved us time - and thats what we needed - but we can point to MANY other plays as well. Still for those who are willing to look at the giants without blinders it is a fair point. But my gosh - sometimes you also have to say - look - this is the guy who has won 2sb's and if he occasionally goes away from convention i will give him some slack because damned if he hasn't earned it.

    If Bennett caught the ball it would of easily been a TD.

    I doubt it. There was a safety that peeled off coverage from Bennett once the ball was thrown Barden's way.
