    Coughlin says no time to run another play and clock the ball

    says throwing to Burden was a "safe call" in his presser after the game

    I was surprised they didn't try something into the endzone or a 5 -10 yd out route. Get some yards and make that field goal a bit more makable!

    And if they intercept?

    To be honest, I could see that happening, but to have Tynes hit a 54yd FG?

    Save him the dignity. Thought he was going to make it, good try, but I believe that that kick was the most perfect for Tynes - 54yd FG that goes short. He'll never make those without help(e.g.-wind on his side)

    This is the team we have today. THROW THROW THROW. We love it when we win games we hate it when it loses games.
    It was a bad play by eli IMO. It was also a maekup call. Had they not called the terrible pass into's early onthe drive they would have never called that.
    They make a makeup call

    Not sure it's been brought up but I actualy give Reid credit for trusting his D and letting the clock run when we were on the 25. I thought for sure he would call those last 2 timeouts to save a little time for vick but knowing we had no timeouts it was a good call.

    You were comfortable with Tynes kicking a 54 yarder? Wouldn that of been a career long for him? I thought it was a horrible decision, and it was. Teams do this ALL THE TIME. They use the downs they have to get closer. Out route. At least try it. If it doenst work, then its incomplete, thats it. Make sure there is no possible way to catch it and go down in bounds. I would of felt better if we did that. At least tried to get closer.

    The chances of things going wrong in a 5-10 yard route are much lower than a 30 yard one. I don't understand how anyone cal say a 30 yard pass play is "safe".
