    How is anyone not talking about the first down that RG3 never got.

    I don't want to watch the game again but I believe it was in the 3rd quarter RG3 ran for about 7-8 yds on a 1st and 10 and got a first down. Now I am not saying that it's the reason we lost the game but how the hell does something like that go unnoticed by both the refs and our coaches is beyond me.

    I agree with you. But Coughlin stood on the sidelines and looked defeated long before the game was over. We badly needed his head in the game.

    Hi. Actually that's my tweeted pic I took on my TV. Terrible Spot. If I was able to see that full speed and no one on the field can, the Giants need to hire someone watching by monitor . Make it a fan that watches all the time.

    That play was 2nd and 7. So 3rd and 1 if they hold them then instead of driving for a go ahead TD, they punt to the Giants unless they go for it on 4th. And it isn't even that. I know refs mess up but how isn't a foot being out of bounds seen by anyone? Even the players running after him didn't complain.

    Wow that is horrible. That no call on Bennett hurt too. We played two teams last night. Whatever, they owe us a call.

    Someone can doublecheck this rule but the way I understand it...the ball spot can only be challenged on 3rd down or 4th down try and/or turnover. So if it was 1st and 10 then they won't review it. It allows corruption of the game and yes, I saw and made mention of that bull**** spot myself. In fact, I believe the ref was about to mark it short by a half yard even though it was almost 1.5 yards short and then they gave them the 1st anyway. I was baffled and not one commentator saw when these guys seem to see everything that could make the Giants look like they got a freebie.

    I do think there was intent to corrupt this game.

    Refs seemed nervous the whole game for whatever reason. Then having one go down did not help at all. Anyone ever hear why that ref left the game?
