Giants accused of faking injuries against Rams?

In last night’s 28-16 Giants triumph over the Rams, there may have been some “gamesmanship” during the Rams no-huddle offense.

Giants safety Deon Grant and linebacker Jacquian Williams both fell to the turf with less than four minutes remaining in the first quarter with the Rams executing the no-huddle.

“Miraculously, he (Grant) recovered quickly,” ESPN’s Mike Tirico said after eyeing the replay.

Analyst/color commentator Jon Gruden said, “I hate to say that he’s (Grant’s) not really hurt, but that’s a tactic that defenses have used in the past against no-huddle offenses to try to slow it down and stop the clock.”

Coach Coughlin thought Grant might have been “cramping.”

    Smart way to stop no huddles. Guess they’ve learnt it watching soccer, lol. It’ll become fashion.

    Oh come on…That was so blatant. And its so unsportsmanlike to do that. Man up and play better defense. In soccer you get a yellow card for doing that. And it was hilarious that 2 players did it at the same time. That should be a penalty.

    just like receivers always faking passing inference or QB faking late hits (remember Tom Brady) it happens all the time just the Giants got caught by the camera blatantly.

    Who cares, they didn’t lose by 4 points, they lost by 12, they couldn’t finish from first and goal from the 1 either, they just aren’t very good without lots of space for Bradford to work with. I hate the comparison to soccer, as in soccer the clock never stops, and there are questions about ball possession etc. The Rams still had the ball, still had the same amount of time on the clock, and still had the same opportunity to score. If you want to talk about cheating how about handing them 15 yards on a penalty where there was no flag, no number, no name to give Coughlin??
