Good to see Big Blue come from behind and win over Dirty Bird. However, I could not believe my eyes when Eli fell down on 3rd down and goal at the end of the game. Instead of going for the juggler and getting a touchdown, Old Conservative Tom had him fall down! (unless he slipped on purpose)
We're not going to beat the Eagles in their house playing this way. Victory goes to the Team who takes risks, and converts them. When is the last time the Giants faked a punt or Field Goal in the regular season? Maybe back to Bill Parcels. Tom is a great coach, great with the fundamentals. But sometimes he is a gutless wonder. God knows if the Giants attempted a fake, it would work as the other team wouldn't see it coming.
Fake a field goal within the 10 yard line instead of settling for 3. Tom could sell this by yelling at Eli while the field goal team takes the field and snaps quickly before the other teams special teams coach can call time out. The holder probably could waltz into the end zone, or hit one of the tight ends.
With a punt, fake near midfield Parcels style with a run up the middle by the up back. Do it on 4th and 1-5 yards. Believe me, this will work especially in the first half. It's nigh time to take some risks, do the unpredictable. We've taken in on the chin with fakes from other teams.
Well, Tom, do you want to win next Sunday? If so, take some risks. Stop being predictable!
