Okay, it's been over two days since the play in the video clip above occurred, but at least one member of the New York Giants is still fuming over it. That player would be none other than Giants defensive end Justin Tuck.

The controversial play came at the end of New York's 41-34 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday. The Giants lined up in the victory formation to run out what was left of the clock, just as any other team in their position would. In a desperate attempt to cause a turnover and get the football back, Tampa Bay head coach Greg Schiano ordered his players to do everything they could to do so. Tom Coughlin, head coach of the Giants, took offense and expressed his displeasure during the post-game hand shake, yelling at Schiano in the process. Tuck added his input to the situation on Tuesday.

"I thought it was a classless play. That is how you get guys hurt. I have been in this league for eight years and that is the first time that I've ever seen that. There have been guys that's been in here a lot longer than I have and that is the first time they have seen it," the two-time Pro Bowler said.

"So if that is how you want to play it, then we will just do that to them and do that to everybody else," Tuck later added. "And it is not going to be an issue until somebody blows their knee out or you get some prime guy hurt on national TV. Like I said, it is not illegal; no, not at all. But I don't agree with it."

What do you all think of the play? Do you side with Couglin or Schiano?
