It doesn't matter to the New York Post that Eli Manning took full responsibility for the boneheaded decision to throw the ball on 3rd-and-goal late in Sunday's game against the Cowboys, who were out of timeouts. The pass was incomplete, the clock stopped, and the Giants settled for a field goal to extend their lead to 26-20.

Seconds later, Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo found tight end Jason Witten for the game-winning touchdown.

It's on me right there," Manning said afterwards. "That's clock management. Obviously just take the sack, take the 40 seconds off the clock. Give them less time. That's 100 percent on me ... Can't afford to throw it away. Got to sit in there and take the sack.”

The Post has no sympathy for you, Eli.

If nothing else, at least the Post's measured response runs counter to the barrage of overreactions and #hottakes we've seen after just one week of football.
