I think the 1986 SB Punt formation shift on 4th and inches is the winner and will be the gutsiest NYG call ever. Just saw a clip of it on NFL Network. Man, that was ballsy. We're losing 10-9 at halftime. Our opening drive to start the 2nd half, Parcells calls it. They ran it vs Denver earlier in the yr, and they were not fooled at all during the SB. Rutiledge (sp?) didnt even know if he should run the play bc Denver adjusted to the formation shift so well and werent fooled at all, and looks at Parcells twice as to ask "we shouldnt do this right?" only for parcells to tell him yup do it by nodding his head, do it and it converted.
That was the springboard for our 2nd half, and we put like 30 points up or something.Landetta credited that fake punt call for the 30 point spring board, but he was on that special teams unit so hes prob a lil biased, ha. Had we punted or failed at that conversion attempt, who knows how the game ends up. That call by Parcells was the shot in the arm that awoke the team...such a gutsy play call
