Perhaps some day he will figure out that it is time to change from having Eli go deep on the Eagles to going short and getting YACs.
    Especially when Hixon, although he did very well, he does not have the "go up and get the ball" skills that Nicks has in that situation. He is not the right WR for that type of pass play.

As long as we have Eli and Company, we will live rather well.

    That wasn't the time nor the place for a Kill Shot. I'll give credit to Coughlin for admitting it wasn't his best call.

    Given the down, the distance, the score, the time on the clock..... the right call is a running play, or else a play-action, high percentage pass underneath to Bennett if he's open....if not, throw the ball away to stop the clock.

    Coughlin is a great coach, and he learns from his mistakes. That won't happen again under his watch.

    I was thinking this morning that this team does rely on the big play a little too much.
