Opinions Vary On Greg Schiano's Gaffe Vs. Giants

In the closing seconds of the Buccaneers-Giants game last Sunday, coach Greg Schiano instructed his defenders to go after Eli Manning during a final kneel-down play.

The play has been much-scrutinized and analyzed, and expert opinions vary.

Yahoo's Dan Wetzel supports the bold move:

"Greg Schiano was hired to change the entire culture of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and if he's going to fail at that, it won't be from nicely backing down from anyone, at any time."

New York writers, like ESPN's Dan Graziano, were not so impressed. For Graziano, the move shows "a lack of respect.

"It's sore-losership. You've been beaten, fair and square, in the part of the game in which both teams were competing honestly. To try to win it cheaply with a sneaky play after the opposing team (and any other opposing team you've ever faced or ever will face) justifiably believes it to have been decided is dishonest and dishonorable."

The decision has divided fans, analysts, and coaches. Where do you stand?
