    " I like the ball thrown down the field " Tom Coughlin to Eli

    “I come from a long line of — I like the ball thrown down the field,” Coughlin said. “I like taking shots. I like all of those things, and it’s one thing to talk about it and another thing to do it. We just haven’t done it and we haven’t had that many opportunities, or taken that many opportunities, and it’s frustrating because there were some opportunities out on the field (Saturday) night for some big plays. The other things is, we’re not taking advantage of some of the opportunities that are created by some of the receivers. When a receiver is open down field, we’ve got to give him a chance. It’s their chance as well to help our team by establishing what they can do, and we’re not taking advantage of that enough.”

    Sounds like he would rather bring back Kevin Gilbride, TC is calling out Eli here IMO.

    “I think (Manning) just missed it,” Coughlin said. “When Odell went by him, he was expecting maybe one thing to happen. But when he (Revis) was clearly behind by four or five yards, then the ball had to be thrown in a different spot and it wasn’t. To be honest with you, I’m not sure if Eli was already halfway through his motion or whatever, but the ball obviously was not in a position where it could’ve been caught in bounds.”
    This is surprising me and not something TC normally would do. Whats your take?

    I did like the short out routes, Odell seems to have those down perfectly.

    Throwing it over the middle is what has caused a lot of Eli's more derpy interceptions over the years.

    Is he kidding?

    Tommy, first, talk to your OC then talk to your DC.

    The last thing this team needs is to increase the odds on 3 and outs and the time the defense spends on the field.

    Please tell me he's not serious. Has he even looked at the personnel on the field?

    I think the pretzel guy caught it.

    Then why the hell did he hire an OC who runs the WC offense?
    Lifetime member of the "specific element" and proud of it.
