Can't have the RB go air Bourne there from 3 yards out

Of course it was a bad play call. It didn't work.

You 'play to win' by making sound decisions, such as taking the easy field goal to go up 8 points. Or, by running the ball on 3rd and 5 in the last 2 minutes of the game to force the Giants to take their final timeout (assuming you don't get the 1st down), instead of calling a stupid bomb down field. I half expected the ensuing punt to be a fake. This is like playing Madden with my nephew.

It was a great win despite Pederson's best efforts to turn it into a heartbreaking loss, but holy Jeebus this coach is terrible.

There's more than one way to skin a cat. Your conservative approach is one way to win...or maybe it's just a way not to lose.

If not for Jenkins second INT going for the TD instead of the FG could have cost them the game ... again. I like being aggressive but he has to be smart too. It seems we're outnumbered here, but I still think he takes chances he shouldn't. When the team is actually playing meaningful games I bet the consensus is different.

Right. If Eli doesn't overthrow ODB with 20 seconds left, the mood here is much different because of that extra timeout gifted to them.
