Danny Etling is not known for his blazing speed. That being said, the New York Giants have to feel simply awful for letting him get loose on Thursday night.
The former LSU quarterback kept the ball on a read-option late in the fourth quarter, took off toward the right sideline and was GONE.
Eighty-six yards later, he scored.

This was just an unconscionable lapse of defensive discipline by the Giants. But it was also all kinds of awesome.
As a LSU fan, I don't remember Danny Etling being that quick haha

Danny Etling is totally playing nickel corner come Week 15.

How the entire Giants defense get fooled on a naked bootleg? Even Danny Etling looked shocked he had all that field in front of him.
