    They were going for the ball. If an Olineman was injured during any other period of the game due to a defender going for the ball, it wouldn't be an issue.

    It's football. Injuries happen. Now if the game was out of reach, I'd totally agree. However, there was time left and the Bucs still had a chance... not their fault the Giants decided the game was over.

    Tampa Bay Buccaneers coach Greg Schiano has discovered a new desperation strategy for the final seconds of a football game.

    In the event that the Buccaneers' opponent intends to allow the game clock to wind to within, say, 0:05 and then kick a game-winning field goal, Schiano has instructed his defense to repeatedly make contact with the offensive line every time the teams line up so as to draw an encroachment flag. The defense has been told to do this ad nauseam until the opposing team is finally exasperated and decides to run a regular offensive play.

    "It's good, tough, clean, hard-nosed, thick-skulled football," Schiano said. "We've run this play... oh... in five years we've given up four touchdowns, so the strategy is obviously working. We just need to play better defense when we get in that situation. We won't change the way we play. We will continue to smash our heads into the wall until it works. That's what toughness is all about."

    there was time on the clock and the play was legal. Its on the Gmen for quitting when there was time on the clock and a snap was required.
