    We should have had him down without needing the ref to bail us out. So close, damnit.

    The bigger question is did our players think that the whistle was eminent and gave up before the whistle instead of playing to the whistle.

    Was the point of Mike Carey coming out with this to induce suicidal thoughts? Because if so, Mr. Carey, mission accomplished.

    The only consolation, if you want to call it that, is it was 3rd down so there's a small chance they'd have converted the 4th and 18 or whatever it would have been. I know, it's a stretch but they would have had one more shot.

    In real time the sack wasn't as guaranteed as some may think. The guys who had a hand on him weren't in a good position to collapse on him. Most were still being pushed around by the o-line.

    I have only seen this play once, and it was live in the stadium. I wish not to see a replay of it, but I imagine it's inevitable. It will sneak up on me some day.

    From where I sat, I could tell it was close to a sack, but didn't realize how close until I read about it later. But what I do remember is that when he chucked the ball in the air, my immediate reaction was, "oh, that's got to be a pick."

    Sigh.

    I like Mike Carey. But I wish he would just shut up. It does me no good to read this stuff.

    Or the ball sail through Samuel's hands.

    Or Meriweather's.

    The list goes on....

    Take a look at the gallery. The whole play is beyond belief. How Tyree one hands the ball, with the ball on his helmet and Harrison hanging off his arm and the ball doesnt come loose....

    The football Gods were definitely not in our favor.

    I just watched it again on Inside the NFL and forget about almost blew the whistle, the bastard should have thrown the flag! first for facemask against Adalius Thomas from O'Hara and again during the great escape there are at two holding calls. From listening to the refs commentary he was enjoying the game, maybe a little too much.

    It ranks up there with David Patten getting knocked out and the ball resting on his legs while his upper body was out of bounds.

    He should have thrown the friggin flag. AD, Green and Seymour were all blatantly held on that play.

    O'Hara has Seymour by the facemask in this pic. Right after this he jerked his head and thats when Seymour lost his grasp.

    This play wasn't a miracle, it was a friggin travesty.

    the ball didn't go through Meriweather's hands. He reached out and tried to catch the ball (coming in over his shoulder), and it went just past his reach. That would have been an amazing catch too.

    I'm glad he had the chance to make the play. Games should be decided by players not refs.

    Looks like his hand is grabbing Seymour's collar.

    I watched the replay of this, O'Hara had Seymour in a choke hold, then had him by the facemask, which is what we see here. Right after this O'Hara pushes Seymour away by his facemask. AD and Green were also held, AD twice in face.

    2 refs staring into this play and neither of them saw this?

    i think the refs called a pretty good game.....for the giants!! haha..but it still pisses me off how we had a few interceptions thrown right to us & we dropped them on the last eli drive..but seriously how can that ref miss those holds if they were right in front of his eyes..i guess since it was the superbowl he just let they play go forward..its crazy how one hold call could of most likely won us the game.i just hope we learned from our mistakes & come out stronger nexy season..GO PATS!

    Zackly, while Carry was d!cking with his whistle trying to figure out if he was in the grasp, he missed several OBVIOUS penalties. I generally like him, but the crew flubbed that play BADLY.

    You guys are looking at this super super slow mo,,

    I'll bet this the unwritten rule of the NFL, last 2 minutes, there has to bleeding, or a torn limb involved to call a penalty.

    If Carey threw the flag he would have been lynched by the NY Media.

    He would be the Ben Dreith of the Giants haunting fans for decades,

    Besides it took the catch of the decade to beat the Pats,,

    Actually that's not always true! In SB 38 Troy Brown was called for Offensive PI which overturned a gain that put us in field goal range and came really close to stalling the drive at the end of the game!
