    Coughlin said he didn't tell Bradshaw not to score.

    Coughlin said he didn't tell Bradshaw not to score.
    but Eli did .

    Something this important and TC doesn't even have a hand in the decision ?

    should that not be a coaching decision ?

    i hope that their weapons of choice are Gibsons and Fenders

    Re: Coughlin said he didn't tell Bradshaw not to score.

    By the sound of his interview he seemed two minds about it. One, he wanted more time off the clock. Two, you never know what mistake might happen. Sure odds favor the Giants get a touchdown. But they almost lost 3 fumbles by that point and why tempt fate? So it was left to Eli. Glad it worked out.

    Re: Coughlin said he didn't tell Bradshaw not to score.



    he said it was on him that he didn't give Bradshaw clear direction.




    but he wasn't unhappy AT ALL about the TD.




    at the time i thought 1 minute was too much time and i was FREAKING OUT.




    the next 3 or 4 offensive plays obviously gave me a much better feeling.

    I was mad at bradshaw, but whatever... it happened.

    Honestly Tynes could have missed the field goal, so who cares

    its a tough call either way.




    Give Tynes essentially a conversion kick for the win, or give HOF Brady the ball, a time out, and a minute.




    Neither are great choices IMHO.

    he also said he wanted him to score

    so why would he say anything?

    The Pats woulda have had like 20 seconds left in the game (barring defensive auto-first down penalties) to get a FG (ftw) if the Giants milked the clock and kicked the short FG.

    But the Giants were trailing (not tied or winnning), FGs are not a given, kickoff returns are uncertain, Bradshaw was given an easy TD, Patriots were forced to get a TD, which is harder than kicking a FG, more pressure on the Patriots.

    Patriots were in a bad spot either way.

    Going for the TD was certaintly not a bad decision in that situation, especially when the red carpet was blatantly rolled out by the opposing defense.

    Just because Mr. Thinks-he-knows-it-all Collinsworth says something doesn't mean he's always right. The dude couldn't wait to break out visuals and percentages blaming Manningham when Manningham caught a pass out-of-bounds earlier in the game. Then when Manningham does make a terrific sideline catch on the Giant's last drive, he suddenly flip-flops.
