To Jon Gruden for tanking the end of Tampa’s regular season to play the Giants, then completely ignoring the two most logical ways to beat them: Throwing out of the shotgun to buy Jeff Garcia extra time against a great pass rush, and blitzing the living hell out of Eli Manning. I thought he spent three weeks preparing to play the Giants! Didn’t he see the second half of the Pats-Giants game? What the hell? Seriously, what the hell?
