Personally I think it's absurd for Coughlin to criticize a guy for lining his team up and playing football. It was a 3 point margin. They were trying to cause a fumble. I wouldn't agree if it was a 21 point margin but it wasn't.

I love it when people tell me somebody could have gotten hurt. Uh yeah... it's football. Every player takes that risk on every play. I thinks it's insane that people are criticizing him for trying to win a game. It's friggin stupid IMO.

This is in reference to the Giants kneeling on the ball a week or two ago and the Buccaneers D trying to cause a fumble. Sorry about not explaining that.

I don't have an issue with that particular play but the guy better start winning or he'll be outta there next year. 
Mainly think he's getting a rude awakening that NFL guys don't go for the play with passion every play style that he's trying to preach but that happens with a lot of college coaches.

The NFL should just outlaw that play and force the offense to actually run a play. It cheapens the game imo.

team lines up to take a knee, game is over man.

force em to run a play, they just hand the ball off and hit the deck anyways so it wouldn't matter. 

welcome to the NFL bud... now STOP IT

Line up and play.  We're down by three and we're gonna take the ball from you.  Stop us.
 
Sounds like football to me.

Interesting article from Mike Silver about Greg S. Link


He's not well liked in NFL circles.Personally,  I think he's a good coach, although he needs to find a new Offensive Coordinator. A better offensive line would help too.

The reason teams take a knee instead of handing it off is because of the Giants. Joe Pisarcik fumbles a handoff, and Mr. YouPlayToWinTheGame picked it up and runs it in for the game winner.

We'll see how Goodell feels when a Buc injures a player. Hope the fine was worth it.......

 Maybe if his team played tough for the other 59 mins. he wouldn't have to resort to that chickenshit stuff......

As long as they weren't faking they weren't interested and then blasted through the line, I'm OK with it.  They should have known they were coming hard based on how they lined up.

Would I do it?  No.

And you know that Schiano is going to get the hazing treatment.  The old coach's network doesn't like to let someone into their fraternity that easy.

Yeah... he's good at fining DB's for playing the game and trying simply to break up a pass, so I'm sure he'll fine a coach for lining his team up at the line of scrimmage to try to win a game.

Wow Mugg.  I know you're smarter than the above statement.  So if everybody "plays tough" for 59 minutes, they will win the game by three touchdowns.  But wait a minute.  What if both teams "play tough"?  Then which team will be up by 21?  Mmmm...

Just my opinion... it's not chickenshit stuff.  He's trying to win a game.  What would be your opinion if it had worked?  Eli fumbles and a DB picks it up and runs for a TD.  Then I'll bet that Greg would be viewed in a much different light by those that disagree with what he did. 

Bottom line is... line up and play because we're going to until the clock says zero.  If you don't like it, pull up your panties, go home, and go gripe about it in your diary.

   Read the article posted above.  This guy seems like a first class fool but it still doesn't change my stance.

I don't know that much about Schiano but I don't have a problem with what he's done.     He has the guts to do things his way.   That's what it means to be a man.

Good find BostonKen.

Here's an article about another guy who's a prickly pear, doing it his way.    More power to 'em.

I heard this on one of the many sports talk shows the other day (can't remember which). Last minute of the game stop the clock on a negative yardage play. This may limit the kneel down. Just a thought.

Guy was not well liked in college. Bottom line is is the offense tells the defense they are kneeling down. NFL players have short careers and a play like that could have hurt a few people. Coughlin was sticking up for his players like good coaches do.

Kneel down is part of the game. Same thing when basketball players milk the clock with a decent sized lead.

Not one person can point to a situation where the play that Shitiano called worked. The odds of recovering the ball after causing a fumble and scoring are absurd.

Guy is a bully and thinks he can intimidate people. Not in the NFL. Coughlin made a man twice his his age and twice his size look like a girl.

If you don't gain at least 1 yard on the last play of the game you lose a point. How about implementing that rule to screw with the bookmakers odds.
