Putting pressure on a team kneeling down to run out the clock at the end of a game could be considered a dirty call, but Tampa Bay head coach Greg Schiano doesn’t think so.
Schiano had his defense rush Giants quarterback Eli Manning at the end of a Week 2 matchup in which New York came out victorious.
Schiano told Pro Football Talk on Friday that he wasn’t telling his players to hurt the other team, but rather to see if they could cause a fumble. That type of last-minute pressure had worked several times in the past, according to Schiano, and it could have altered the game if it were successful.
Check out Schiano’s full interview from Friday in the video below.
