The only reason that Buddy Ryan punched Gilbride is that Buddy is a fat idiot. To imply that Gilbride somehow deserved it is just ignorant.
Eli can change from a run to pass on any play. The giants offense is built to take advantage of whatever the defense shows.
If the browns bring a safety up into the box, the correct play is to pass. That doesn't always mean it will work, but that's how it's designed
And frankly, putting the ball in Eli's hands in any scenario is not a bad thing
You play a game to win and you score points to win. You DO NOT play a game "not to lose".
That mentality will bite you in the *** 9 times out of 10. Unless there is 3 or 4 minutes left and a comeback is mathematically inconceivable, you keep pressing.
Why is it that only morons bring up Buddy Ryan punching Gilbride?

I attribute it to two things:
(1) the defense expect you to run so keep them honest and/orr off balance
(2) being aggressive and going for even more points
However, the reasons you run in this situation are not just that you kill the clock but it's demoralizing and exhausting for the defense to try to stop run plays down after down after down.
Of course this greed of going for more through the air lost us the Philly game
