This wasn't a blunder. Jobs are on the line in the NFL every week. One win can be the difference between winning the division and sitting on your couch come January, which is often also the difference between have a job or not. Schiano was trying to win. What gives a crap if the Giants weren't expecting it.

But I'd say in terms of blunders, Mike Smith's biggest blunder wasn't even in the article. At the end of the Seattle game, he hurries up to call a timeout with 11 seconds left. Why? If you are just going to kick the field goal, why not let the clock run down to 2 or 3 seconds so the field goal is the last play of the game? Instead, there were 8 seconds left.

Then they do a squib kick. If a FG wins or ties the game, don't squib kick. Because of these blunders, Seattle had 8 seconds and three timeouts at their own 46. Steve Hauschka has a caree long of 54 yards, meaning Seattle only needed about 15-20 yards for a decent chance at the win. That is a lot more likely than a kickoff return for a TD (Seattle had just one all year).

Those are inexcusable mistakes. Any idiot watching from home knew that both of those moves were stupid. A stupid challenge or throwing a flag when you are not supposed to (which was a new and completely idiotic rule) is much more forgivable than Smith's last 15 seconds of coaching.

Speaking of coaching blunders from the Seahawks-Falcons game. Carroll trying to ice the kicker on the game winner was pretty bad to.

Not to mention the most ******** rule in the NFL.
