    If you (somehow) haven't seen it yet, the play in question can be seen in the vid below at the 0:23 mark.



    Coughlin is crying dirty play. While Schiano says they're just playing hard and trying to win.

    I gotta say, I'm surprised that the overwhelming consensus I have heard seems to side with Coughlin in saying it was dirty. I could understand thinking it was uncalled for if the Giants had been up by multiple scores. But this was a 7 point game. You catch the offense off guard and cause a bad snap or something and you've got a shot to tie it up. Winning was still a possibility for the Buccaneers. A remote one, sure. But stranger things have happened.

    I'm with Schiano on this one. Play hard for 60 full minutes. Our team could learn a thing or two from him.

    You play to win the game.

    Exactly the play I had in mind when I said "stranger things have happened" TJ.

    I think all but one analyst I've seen discussing this has sided with Coughlin and I just don't get it. I wonder if this is just a case of people siding with the veteran, multiple SB winning coach. If the roles had been reversed and the Giants had done it, would there be the same backlash?

    Good arguments have been made for both sides. I'm with Schiano.

    Now if the Giants were up by 9 or more, I'd be on Coughlin's side.

    Honestly, it is a different situation. The Bucs would have cried if he'd faked the kneel down and tossed a TD to Crews.

    If you don't like the play you should have had the game put away before it.

    I can see why Coughlin is mad and I can see why Schiano called it. It's a legal play so whatever, I don't care. If you don't what your QB to get hurt, have your line protect him.

    I also have no issue with running up the score. It's a professional sport where you get paid to play the game - crying about having the score run up against you is embarrassing.
