The hot topic around the NFL has been the final five seconds of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and New York Giants’ game this past Sunday. Everyone has debated and sounded off. Here are some of the analysts that have weighed in on the debate from several outlets across the nation.

NFL Network (here)

Deion Sanders: “That’s ignorant. That doesn’t work.”

Marshall Faulk: “It’s a mindset he (Schiano) is trying to instill in his players… If that’s how you’re going to play, you have to go to the other coach and say ‘we’re gonna play through the whistle’.”

NBC Sports (here)

Mike Florio: “Spare me the unwritten rule. This is football. Be ready to block, be ready to talk.”

Rodney Harrison: “At the end of the day, I wouldn’t do it. I agree with Tom Coughlin.”

ESPN Mike & Mike Radio Show (here)

Mike Golic: “You can see the defense and what their intentions are. These guys were in four point stances. I don’t know how as an offensive lineman say ‘guys get ready’.”

Ron Jaworski: “There is no doubt Tom Coughlin owes Greg Schiano an apology for the way he reacted after the game… You play to the end of the game. There is no doubt they were coming off the ball.”

Mike Ditka: “I like Greg Schiano a lot, I really do… Hey, if you have pads, and a helmet and the game is not over, play.”

Chris Carter: “I understand both sides of the argument. I understand Greg Schiano. I believe it’s good coaching. I don’t believe it’s dirty.”

Tim Hasselbeck: “Who cares man you’re not at Rutgers anymore. That’s not how you play.”

Antonio Pierce: “Five or six seconds left in the game, odds are you will win, but you never know. I have no problems with it.”

The NFL also chimed in by releasing a statement regarding the incident via NJ.com through their spokesman Greg Aiello:

“There were no violations on the play or afterwards that would require follow up from our office.”

The afterwards portion of the above statement may not have been reviewed thoroughly. As it was published yesterday on TheBayCave.com, a video showed New York Giants’ players unloading on the Bucs’ defensive line players.

At this point, both teams have their next opponents to focus on. However, this is a topic that will carry on for a while and as displayed above, have everyone in NFL circles commenting on it.
