Seahawks Coach Pete Carroll Sides With Greg Schiano On Kneel-Down Controversy
One of the biggest story lines that came out of Week 2 in the NFL was the controversy that came out of the ending to Sunday's Giants-Buccaneers game. With time running out, the Giants lined up in a "victory formation" so Eli Manning could take a knee to end the game but while many teams on the losing side of that scenario would simply let time run out, first-year Tampa Bay coach Greg Schiano had his defense fire into the Giants line trying to force a fumble.
In a postgame press conference, Manning called it a "cheap shot" while head coach Tom Coughlin said:" I don't think you do that at this level. You don't do that in this league."
Schiano, meanwhile, defended his actions, saying, "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."
Seahawks coach Pete Carroll was asked about the play during his press conference Thursday, and he said he would handle the play the same way the Buccaneers did.
"There's a chance to the win the game on that play, and I thought Greg did exactly the right thing," Carroll said. "I would do exactly the same thing in the same situation. . . It's about competing to make the play to try to win the football. That's it. Protect your quarterback."
