[QUOTE]In Response to Re: why the giants will win : I think both feet are down, but it is a judgement call. Either way, that is not the point. Whatever it was, it should have been caught - no questions on that. And as I have read in earlier comments, the discussion of luck came up with two muffed punts in the Giant win. In fact, one, as just described by you, one can be called a great defensive strip. I am not arguing any case - just making basic points of how games can turn on what starts out as an innocent play.

"one can be called a great defensive strip"
Not if the brain dead HC didn't instruct said returner to fair catch the ball inside their 20 yard line in OT, it's not. It's an open invitation to disaster, given his not being the regular returner. Rule is inside your 20, fair catch; inside your 10, get away and hope the ball gets into the endzone. Guess Boy Wonder missed that day in Head Coach College 101.
And, his brother, and the Ravens organization aas a whole, need some serious help, seeing NO ONE on the field (coaches, non-dressed players, dressed players, and Billy Shank himself, who KNEW he was going to be called upon), or those in the box, knew the exact down and distance. Then, with the clock winding down, the aforementioned challenged HC didn't use his TO to get his kicker on the field in the right frame of mind. So what if the Patriots called a TO to try and "ice" him! He shouldn't have been rushed onto the field to rush a FG attempt to tie the game with less than 30 seconds remaining, and your team's season on the line.
