I appreciate wanting to hit an elite WR at 3 with no cover down on 3rd and goal from the 3... but there is a little more to this play than just the below... #GiantsPride
First off, let's start with the All-22 vs broadcast... and immediately we see the #Giants were in Empty to start and Manning motions in Barkley to the backfield. What we learned later is PS had called 2 plays, and Manning killed the pass to run IZ to the trips side...
If you notice from the endzone view... the D is in a Bear front and the OC does not cleanly climb to get the MLB (who ironically prob should have covered down on #3, OBJ), so to the 2 man surface EM's kill to run IZ is "correct" yet poorly executed
Now, as to why EM chose not to give some sort of a signal to OBJ for a quick Now route or something to space, IDK. There was a thought process and an "audible", but he chose another option. PS claimed later "both would have been correct".#GiantsPride
My guess: EM is not the best 1 step thrower of the ball to short space (fans can attest to screens) and he may not have been comfortable, OR maybe thought for some reason that play side End would drop off to cut 3, etc... Not the best pre-snap processing, but not the worst
