Coughlin started out with a couple of choice words, then came back to give Schiano, who's in his first season as an NFL coach after a successful tenure at Rutgers, a brief education in League Etiquette 101.
"I don't think you do that," Coughlin told the media after the game, per Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News. "You don't do that in this league. Not only that, you jeopardize the offensive line, you jeopardize the quarterback. Thank goodness we didn't get anybody hurt — that I know of. A couple of linemen were late getting in."




Schiano was unmoved. "I don't know if that's not something that's done in the National Football League,'' he said. "What I do with our football team is that we fight until they tell us, 'game over.' And there's nothing dirty about it, there's nothing illegal about it. We crowd the ball like a sneak defense and try to knock it loose.
"If people watched Rutgers, they would know that's what we do at the end of a game. We're not going to quit, that's just the way I coach and teach our players. If some people are upset about it, that's just the way it goes. I don't have any hesitation. That's the way we play. We play clean, hard football until they tell us the game is over.'"
Most likely, that's what Coughlin was telling Schiano: You're not coaching at Rutgers anymore.

Bucs were trying to make a play. If the Giants want to run something else they should snap from the shotgun and fall down. Or they could run the ball. It's their own fault they hotdogged it in the victory formation. The game's not over till the final whistle.

Schiano has to realize this is the NFL. Guys get paid. Why risk injury? Coughlin had a right to be mad


Prisco with some interesting perspective.

how exactly did they "hotdog it"? they had just picked off Freeman for the win, they ended their game pretty much exactly how our game ended...did we hotdog it by taking a knee?

edit, also he wasn't above having his team taking a knee to run out 2 minutes last week against us

Seems like a lot of the media agrees with Coughlin and many fans agree with the Bucs.

Is playing all 60 minutes as hard as you can and within the rules somehow wrong now?

It's not wrong but it's also not the way it's done.

Mark my words, if they don't chill that poo out one of those guys is going to get hurt by a cheap shot.

I'm glad someone else mentioned this, that was some pansy ass football.

As for the thread at hand, I agree with Coughlin. But I also don't like the Bucs soooo yeah.

In my opinion, the next team doing this against the Bucs should have their OL go for the TB defensive linemen's knees at the snap.

Many of you seem to agree with Schiano that it should be required that the Victory Formation be played all-out.

OK... against TB go all out then. And when McCoy or whoever on the Buc DL gets their knees blown-out for a useless play, that's the price to be paid for going "all out".

I agree with Coughlin, there was no reason to risk injuring someone. It's a professional courtesy, same as not blasting guys who are clearly going out of bounds.

fug that, it's just poor sportsmanship. The victory formation is specifically designed to prevent a fumble. The Bucs had absolutely ZERO chance of getting anything out of doing that.

Coughlin is the oldest HC in the league, won 2 Superbowls with the Giants, and made an expansion team relevant during its infancy.

If I'm Schiano I'm shutting my mouth and opening my ears at anything he has to say.

It was a one possession game. slight chance for a fumble however rare. I don't see the problem. If it was more than a one possession game it would absolutely be dirty as poo.
