Tom Coughlin Has Words For Greg Schiano

New York Giants coach Tom Coughlin obviously did not like the hit Eli Manning took on the final play of the game Sunday, with the Giants in victory formation. Below, you see him giving Tampa Bay coach Greg Schiano a piece of his mind.



Other than enjoying the reaction by Coughlin, what did you think of the hit on Manning?



Schaino did not apologize for the way his team played the final play:

"I don't know if that's not something that's done in the National Football League, but what I do with our football team is we fight until they tell us the game is over," Schiano said. "There's nothing dirty about it. There's nothing illegal about it. We crowd the ball. It's like a sneak defense and we try to knock it loose. If they watch Rutgers, they would know, that's what we do at the end of the game. We're not going to quit. That's just the way I coach and teach our players. Some people were upset about it. I don't have any hesitation. That's the way we play: clean, hard football until they tell us the game is over."

Coughlin remained unhappy during his post-game press conference:

"I don't think you do that at this level. You don't do that in this league," Coughlin said. "You don't just, you jeopardize the offensive line, you jeopardize the quarterback. Thank goodness we didn't get anyone hurt -- that I know of."
