    A lot of people think they are the best at something BECAUSE of how hard they work at it.

    3rd and 1, what play is Gilbride going to call?

    1- Screen to RB
    2- Shotgun Draw
    3- Quick Slant
    4- 30 yard bomb downfield
    5- Timeout because he didn't get the play to Eli quick enough

    I hope you are just joking around being a silly guy.
    Uhh, no I'm not joking.
    Plays are designed to be successful. The ultimate success is a touchdown. Clearly I'm going to one extreme to explain that the coaches are trying to get the most yards out of any situation regardless, but it's hard not to have to explain it that way when some people actually think that we are actiallyTRYING to only get 2 yards when we in fact need 6 for a first down.

    Thinking you're the best is not equivalent to thinking that you are perfect and have no room for improvement.

    well there are 3 things here, obviously to get to this level a coach/coordinator has to be supremely confident ... i always prefer coaches and players to keep it to themselves, but in this day the media is always up in your grille asking where you rate yourself .... they did it to Eli, etc.

    2nd, if he don't believe in his gameplan, then how can he sell it to the players and it is about gameplan, not play calling ... play calling is arbitrary and Eli always has the ability to change it .... it kills me when no nothings on this board single out one play and say WE SHOULD HAVE RAN IT THERE ... please ... it is always about EXECUTION

    and finally, the NFL is a results business and the results during the Coughlin, Eli and Gilbride era have been great and you don't have great without these guys being great, so Gilbride haters, it's not too late to eat your crow and take your blinders off
    Apologize to Melo 5
