Eli Manning Knocked Down After Taking a Knee, Tom Coughlin Lets Greg Schiano Have It (Video)


Eli Manning Knocked Down After Taking a Knee, Tom Coughlin Lets Greg Schiano Have It (Video)Welcome to the NFL, Greg Schiano.

In a
back-and-forth battle between the Giants and Buccaneers on Sunday
afternoon, the G-Men came away with an eight point victory over Tampa
thanks in large part to Eli Manning. After Ahmad Bradshaw was knocked out of the game early, it all came down on Manning to lead the charge against head coach Schiano and the Bucs.

While he did
throw three interceptions, the younger Manning brother racked up 510
passing yards (only three yards behind the Giants single-game record set
by Phil Simms in 1985) and three touchdowns en route to victory.

The biggest headline however, may have come after the final whistle, as New York head coach Tom Coughlin taught Schiano a lesson in the postgame handshake.

After a late score to put the Giants up by eight, Tampa had an opportunity to drive with the clock winding down. Josh Freeman was picked off by Michael Boley
with twelve seconds left to essentially end the game. All that was left
was for Manning to knee the ball and let the clock expire.

The Bucs had other ideas.

Tampa sent
the house on Manning, knocking him down to wrap up the game. Coughlin,
less than pleased, had a stern talking to with Schiano, who seemed to
brush off the two-time Super Bowl champion.
