    Try and use and shred of critical thinking skills here BEFORE you post.

    We DIDN'T use the timeouts before the two minute warning. We did use them BOTH, aftewards.

    Here is the play by play from ESPN: http://scores.espn.go.com/nfl/playby...30021&period=4

    We let the clock run down to the two minute warning. We called our second timeout at 1:57 and third at 1:52. Then they had to kick the FG.

    If we use both timeouts BEFORE the two minute warning, there is a very good chance we could have gotten the ball back with at the very least a FULL two minutes but possibly even 2:03-2:05.

    So at the very least, 8 extra seconds. More than likely 10-15 extra seconds

    AT THE VERY LEAST.

    Tack that onto the 15 seconds that were already on the clock. That gives us time to run a short play for an extra 4 or 5 yards and have the FG team ready to sprint onto the field and lineup for a 45-47 yarder instead of a 54 yarder.

    Hypothetical for sure but what's not hypothetical is that he USED THE CLOCK POORLY by not calling the timeouts on the right side of the two minute warning.

    Man are there some amateur posters on this site.
    You are assuming that Eli is not going to try that pass, you can't do that, that's why they play the came and we watch the games, just click rewind on your Madden game and try agian, doesn't work that way in the real world.

    The bottom line is its a decison that shoulden't even go through ur mind, ever.. The fact that its even a possiblity for ur QB to throw a deep one to the endzone when there in prime Winning the game FG range.. And when the CB is Nhamdi and he has solid positoning on the much inexpierenced barden, it makes it even more crazy!


    That play was flat out stupid.. Eli is awesome, but lets be real.. That was just Stupid, and there is no other way to put it...

    You have no real understanding of football.......Madden logic isn't being used here, it was simply a statement to say that anyone with even a modicum of football intelligence should understand that Coughlin mismanaged the clock. Congrats on not being among that group.

    1:54 to get a field goal is plenty of time, TC did the right thing, it was up to the offense to move the ball and get them in range. It simply didn't happen. Unbelievable, Madden.....

    Cost us an additional 15-20 seconds which we could have used to run 1 more play, get a little bit closer and make a closer field goal.

    Anyone with even half a brain who has played Madden once or twice in their lives knows you use the timeouts BEFORE the two minute warning in a goal line situation and not AFTER the two minute warning.

    Terrible clock management cost us this game more than the passing interference.

    Put the blame where it belongs folks!
    That's ridiculous

    If the Eagles picked up a 1st down, we'd have had no time-outs after the 2 minute warning and the Eagles win the game.

    I get the feeling you don't actually watch Eli pass much. He (out of necessity) gives his receivers a chance to make a play on the ball. Thats what he did with Barden. Had Barden just waited and made it a jump ball, either he gets it or it goes out. Course it would have been helpful for Barden to just run over Nhamdi as he was allowed to basically hip check Barden to the sideline (pretty sure thats illegal). But if you're going to throw deep, it was a good throw. Anywhere else and if Barden gets it and gets tackled they would have had a problem clocking it.
