Halftime Score: Eagles 17, Giants 17

What the heck was Giants coach Tom Coughlin thinking when he declined the offensive pass interference penalty on L.J. Smith? On third and four from the Giants 26-yard line, the Eagles tight end was flagged for a ten-yard penalty. The Eagles would have had third and 14 from the Giants 36-yard line, and if they didn't get any yards on the next play, a 52-yard field goal attempt for David Akers. But numbskull Coughlin essentially gave the Eagles the three points and now we have a tie game. Did he not trust his defense? Did he think he was playing the Colts offense for a second there? A call only Rich Kotite could have made.
