Behind closed doors, Coughlin tells critics to “kiss my ass”

Tom Coughlin

Giants coach Tom Coughlin is too classy to say how he really felt to the media after New York’s tenth win of the season.

Luckily, some NFL Films cameras caught his true emotions after the Giants’ 17-14 victory over the Redskins.

“From the bottom of my heart and everybody’s, we have a 10-and-6 season, a 10-win season in the NFL, okay?” Coughlin told his players. “They can kiss my ass, okay? They can line up and kiss my ass. It’s not an easy thing to do.”   (10 wins isn’t easy or . . .  moving on.)

The entire video can be seen here. My favorite part was when a player asked Coughlin if they could quote him.

“You can quote me on a lot more than that. The priest is here or I’d say a few more things,” Coughlin said.

I re-watched the Miracle at the Meadowlands II this week and still couldn’t believe the final result.  There were so many unbelievable plays, like Mario Manningham’s unforced third quarter fumble, that led to the final result.  The Giants didn’t stop blitzing until the end, and we think only one player could have made that comeback.

Coughlin knows that winning “only” ten games doesn’t necessarily mean you are a bad team.  He won a Super Bowl after a 10-win season.

    This is exactly the kind of arrogance that leads me to think we might be better off without him. Sure, 10 wins is tough to do in the NFL. Of course, it is easier when you only beat ONE team with a winning record! But it could have been 11 or 12 wins with just a bit better coaching. Coughlin does a great job of preparing the team, but in-game (except for challenges) he is consistently bad–time management, using the hands team, bleeding the clock, getting Gilbride to commit to the run, etc. And how does this disciplinarian coach have the most undisciplined team when it comes to turnovers? And how can he justify keeping the Special Teams coordinator when the Giants were 30th in net punting and 31st in both kick and punt returns? You know why? Because TC has never done anything that he would do differently if given another chance. Don’t believe me? Just ask him…

    This guy is a great coach. The media hates him because he dont take their crap and wont give them face time. He must of snubed NBC or dungy hates him thATS PFT attacks him alot.

    You need to remember this guy took over the Jags and came real close to bringing them to the superbowl and that jags team was defintly the best team in the NFL i think it was in 98.
    I cant believe they fired him. He also won a superbowl with a giants team that was not even that good.
    He has to coach the most overated qb in the leauge. The Thug players dont like him because he does not let them walk all over him and makes them work hard something they never did in their lives

  3. huejackson says: Jan 6, 2011 10:55 AM

    He is a drunk though u can tell by his purple nose.
    But I would love him to coach my team..
    Jim Fossell as well is a great coach and he took a giants team that was horrible to the superbowl yet the media didnt like him thats why he is not coaching in the NFL right now.
    He is in the top 10 football coaches around.
    Coughlin is in the top 3.
    They do it without cheating like belicheat

  4. demo3356 says: Jan 6, 2011 10:57 AM

    I LOVE IT!! I’ve never seen a Coach get more crap than Coughlin..Guy has had 6 straight seasond of .500 or better, 2 Division Titles, 4 playoff appearances and a Super Bowl win, yet every time the team struggles he is on the Hot seat..This just made me love TC even more!

  5. dpatt67 says: Jan 6, 2011 10:59 AM

    Behind closed doors, don’t MOST of us tell our critics to kiss our asses?

  6. demo3356 says: Jan 6, 2011 11:03 AM

    Great Point Hue..He did take a second year expansion team to the AFC Title Game in 96 and got them back there in 99..Guy is a great Coach and there are very few Coaches in the NFL I would trade him for..

  7. hoobsher says: Jan 6, 2011 11:04 AM

    yeah he “won” a superbowl after a 10 win season. spare me. the entire nfl has already forgotten about that because of how badly the giants have choked at every chance they got to return to the big game. they have a very good defense, a very good run game, a very good oline, and a spectacular corps of WRs….but i guarantee you this much: as long as eli is at the helm and coughlin is coaching, they will never even sniff the superbowl again. EVER.

    eli…lol…isnt…overrated….lmao….he’s elite (http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2010/10/26/is-eli-manning-an-elite-quarterback/..read the comments)….ALL of his league leading 24 INTs were his receiver’s fault….ROTFLMAO…

  10. Keyser Söze says: Jan 6, 2011 11:29 AM

    Good for him.

  11. joetoronto says: Jan 6, 2011 11:32 AM

    You tell em, coach.

  12. 8man says: Jan 6, 2011 11:33 AM

    All I know is his team beat my team in the Super Bowl and kept them from going 19-0.

    And don’t think that is easy to get over. God knows, I’ve tried…

    So you Giants fans had better start to remember all the praying and deals you made before that game, because no other guy gets you there and no other guy wins that game.

    And again, way too much is made of this Eagles comeback last month. Peyton Manning did it on an annual basis against the Patriots. Sometimes twice in one year! Hell, he might do it in the playoffs. Fourth and 2 anyone? Get over it!

  13. metalhead65 says: Jan 6, 2011 11:43 AM

    doesn’t he know coaches and players are not allowed to respond to media attacks? the privleged writers and know it all internet hacks at pft are free to write and say whatever they want but if you respond in any way you are someone who can’t take the heat and there for not a good player/coach.wished he would have said that on the record but then he would have had to apologise for offending somebody and forced to go thru reducation/sensitivity training or lose his job.

  14. mad55555 says: Jan 6, 2011 11:43 AM

    Wow, you know you suck when you only have beaten 1 winning team all season. If it wasn’t for Michael Vick and those meddling kids they could have gotten into the playoffs as the fraud team that they are, and entitled team that they think they are. Hate to break it to ya but you are not going to win without buying back your team from Philadelphia, because they own the nj giants.
    All roads to the playoffs for the nj giants go through Philly.
    BWAAAAA

  15. xtb3 says: Jan 6, 2011 11:43 AM

    Of those TEN wins this year ONLY ONE of them was against a team with an OVER .500 record(Chicago on a night they lost their only real and starting quarterback Cutler for the game in the 2nd quarter).

  16. rayallen20 says: Jan 6, 2011 11:48 AM

    I don’t get it… Is he happy that they went 10-6… Is he upset at the NFL that it isn’t good enough for the playoffs? weird…

  17. xtb3 says: Jan 6, 2011 11:53 AM

    @demo3356

    From 2000 to 2010 with both jacksonville and giants, coughlin coached 10 complete seasons. in only ONE of those TEN did he even win a single playoff game (in 2007 when spagnuolo’s defense won 4 playoff games that year). the other 9 seasons of those last 10 years he did NOT win a single playoff game.

    Coughlin has coached the Giants for 7 years now -and Coughlin has NEVER won a playoff game at the Meadowlands!

  18. broncobeta says: Jan 6, 2011 11:59 AM

    I wish they would have fired him, they pouty Giants fans could see how great he is when he’s coaching up another team.

  19. demo3356 says: Jan 6, 2011 12:00 PM

    LOL@ Mad5555!!! Coughlin has done more in 7 years with the Giants then your entire Franchise has done in the last 50 years!!! He’s already won a SB, while the Philthadelphia EGirls have yet to EVER win one..They get to the playoffs every year and then Fall flat on their face.. While the Giants trophy case has 3 Lombardi Trophies, the Egirls only has a few cans of chunky soup from when McPuke was leading your franchise to short of the promise land..Enjoy getting punked By the Packers this weekend! Enjoy having a Dog killing, Gamling ring running felon as the face of your franchise and yet another year of no Super Bowl!!!

  20. masteel says: Jan 6, 2011 12:11 PM

    Hey! Coach Coughlin is a good Coach. And after a long season of ups & downs – while talking with his guys (team) he deserves the opportunity to be candid and direct.

    With the advancement of cell phones, video, and all sorts of equipment – none of these people who are playing, coaching, and managing have a moment to just let their guard down.

    SO What if he said that with his team …he is the lead guy – he did the best he could and he doesn’t need to be chummy to the media always. Last time I checked the NYC media doesn’t always play ‘nice’ with their sports teams. Especially the decision-makers. I’m a Steeler fan and I’m glad to see a Coach like Coughlin make a statement like that instead of constantly taking the high-road. He is only human.

  21. tantrim says: Jan 6, 2011 12:15 PM

    The NY media believes they are really important and what they print or say is of supreme importance. The internet has diminished their power so I for one don’t care if they all are fired.

  22. mikea311 says: Jan 6, 2011 12:17 PM

    @xtbc…

    the Giants beat jacksonville, they were plus .500,

    so how how do you make it to two championship games with Jacksonville and not win a playoff game?

    get your facts straight.

  23. abninf says: Jan 6, 2011 12:29 PM

    I hate the Giants but I’m with the coach on this one. Not too many could take a team to a championship with Eli at QB.

  24. lucky5927 says: Jan 6, 2011 12:36 PM

    As a Giants fan, he is entitled to his opinion… However, he is not being given a hard time because he won 10 games. He is being given a hard time because he should have won 11 or 12 games and won the division, made the playoffs, and have a bye week (since they had the tiebreakder over the Bears). But he didn’t. He threw his players under a buss, mismanaged the Eagles game, and saw his players get blown out at Green Bay with a chance to secure a playoff game. That is eye opening stuff to me. So is going 4-4 down the stretch after an impressive start (Yet again). So yes, I think he should feel fortunate to be staying on as a coach. And NO arrogance is not the best way to handle himself at this point in time.

  25. demo3356 says: Jan 6, 2011 12:41 PM

    xtb3-He didnt coach in 2003..It is convenient also that you start your case the year after he took the 14-2 Jags to the AFC title game.Guy is a very good Coach, top 5 in the NFL..Also through 7 years as Giants Head Coach –
    Parcells’ first seven years: 64-46-1, 4 playoff appearances, 2 division titles and 1 Super Bowl.

    Coughlin’s first seven years: 65-47-0, 4 playoff appearances, 2 division titles and 1 Super Bowl.

    I think every Giant fan would agree that we’re happy Bill got a chance at season 8.

  26. lennydpocketqb says: Jan 6, 2011 12:43 PM

    Thank the good Lord above that none of you knuckle draggets have no say in the coaching job for the Giants. Like someone out there is better? Don’t bring up Cowher. Dude took 15 years to win a Super Bowl. He spent 5 years thinking Kordell Steeart as a QB. Who’s up for a 5 year test at any skill position?

  27. brintfatre says: Jan 6, 2011 12:47 PM

    He’s in the same position Chilly was in in Minnesota… he has a lousy, interception-prone QB who he can’t bench and he can’t coach up because of celebrity. If he could trade or bench that Manning they would be SB contenders next season.

  28. lennydpocketqb says: Jan 6, 2011 12:49 PM

    *Stewart. Damn auto correct.

  29. demo3356 says: Jan 6, 2011 12:54 PM

    brintfatre -Really? You mean the Qb that threw 32 TD’s and over 4000 yds despite 6 of his top7 WR’s going down to injury and 5 of them including Steve Smith going to IR? The Qb who had a musical chairs of Offensive Lineman going on in front of him all year with 10 dif guys having to play because of all the injuries there as well? Yes he struggled with Turnovers , but who wouldn’t under those circumstances? I know Eli isnt a top 5 Qb, but he is a lot better than the haters give him credit for…

    @demo3356
    xtb3-He didnt coach in 2003..It is convenient also that you start your case ….

    2000 to 2010 inclusive is 11 years – i specifically said his last 10 years coaching because they were most recent.

    Jim Lee Howell

    Look at his 7 year record of success here and compare it to the pitiful job Coughlin did here over 7 years. AND Maras asked him to step down and move on to a management position.

    1954-1960

    One NFL Championship
    2 Conference Titles
    53-27-4 Record as Giants Head Coach a .630 Winning Percentage

    Jim Lee Howell was 46 years old when Giants moved him from Head coach to a management position.

    Steve Owen was 55 years old when the Giants did likewise with him.

    Coughlin will be 65 before next season starts.

    Got to be the oldest in the league and oldest Giants coach ever

    Coughlin’s Regular Season Record as a NFL Head Coach from 2000 to 2010(last Ten seasons) inclusive is:

    84 wins 77 losses

    Note:
    Over those TEN seasons he won 4 playoff games all of them ONE season with Spagnuolo, the other NINE seasons he did NOT win a single playoff game.

    these playoff coaches this year are in their first job even the ones who have now been around a long time like reid or smith – THEY WERE MUCH YOUNGER MEN WHEN THEY WERE HIRED AND EACH HAS BEEN A SUCCESS. Using the training of how the game was played at the time of their hiring where they learned the business. coughlin is a dinosaur who learned in the 70s forty years ago and this game has changed.

    Coughlin has got to be the oldest coach in the league and he was already fired elsewhere. when you look at those last 10 seasons of his he is barely over .500 and its all because of the time spags was here.

    spags 10-6 plus 4-0 playoffs
    spags 12-4 plus 0-1 playoffs

    or
    26-11

    84-77 COUGHLIN’S last 10 years
    less 26-11 spags two years
    EQUALS
    58-66 coughlin’s last 8 seasons WITHOUT spags – A HORRENDOUS RECORD

    now either that 26-11 with spags is an abberation or the OTHER 8 YEARS are

    ———————————
    I have to disagree with you there. The Vikings (although they didn’t win the superbowl) were the best team in the NFL in 1998. That team kicked everyone’s ass including the Jags in a lopsided game of 50-10 I believe.

    I think they were in the AFC Championship during the 96 season, 97 playoffs but I could be wrong. It defintiely wasn’t the 98 season.

  32. zaggs says: Jan 6, 2011 1:25 PM

    “ALL of his league leading 24 INTs were his receiver’s fault….ROTFLMAO”

    At least 8 were. That means only 16 were on Eli. But lets see Eli was 5th in yardage, 4th in TD passes, 9th in yards per attempt and percentage, 10th in yards per game. Not to mention has yet to miss a game in his career and doesn’t play in a pass heavy offense. So yeah Eli is a top 10 QB.

    ————————————————-
    2008: We were headed back to the big dance, Plaxico shoots himself, we don’t have any WR to pick up his production. We go out first game in the playoffs.
    2009: Defense coached by new defense coordinator plays horrible, even when Eli has his best year. Defensive injuries play a part in the downfall.
    2010: Defense play is better then what it was, yet Oline problems, RB issues, and WR injuries plague the offense. Even with all this Eli becomes only the 2nd QB in Giants history to throw 30 TDs in a season.Horrible special teams play kills games as well.

    So I wouldn’t say choked, but we haven’t done as well as we could’ve. I still think you’re right in that the Giants are strong in a lot of areas. I wouldn’t call the WR corps spectular, cause once you get past Nicks, smith, and maybe manningham everyone else is kinda vanilla. Plus all these guys tend to have their own issues: smith isn’t a good deep runner, Nicks has route issues, and Manningham has route issues as well along with ball security issues.

    The major problem season after season is their lackluster special teams play. Very few touchbacks, bad kick coverage, and what used to be good punting has been replaced by subpar performances. I hope they get a new special teams coach because the one they have now is putting a lot of pressure on the Defense and Offense.

    If you watch that Eagles game they had favorable field position all game. It’s no wonder they came back and won it.

    ————————
    That’s a darn good post there. I’m not an Eli fan by any stretch of the imagination. I do believe he is over-rated but I think his problem comes down to consistency. One game he’ll play like a HOFer then the next like a pop warner. He does have the skills and can win games. There is no doubt about that. Being a Viking fan he would be the best option they have right now (then again that’s not sayng much). But when it comes down to it Eli isn’t as bad as some make him out to be. He’s not a top 5 QB but I would say definitely top 10. I think he had so muhc expected of him because of his brother that people tend to misinterprete Eli’s skills. Like I stated, I’m not a big fan but I do give credit where it’s due.

  35. xtb3 says: Jan 6, 2011 1:29 PM

    In the 3 prior Giants games before the Eagles-Giants 2nd meeting a week and a half ago, Bradshaw and Jacobs averaged over 6.8 yards per carry. In the 2 games before that Eagles visit, Bradshaw and Jacobs combined, gained 200 yards or over in each of those games. In that Eagles game that followed those 3 excellent running displays, Bradshaw and Jacobs combined then for 100 yards on 31 carries vs. Philadelphia and in the Packers game the pair combined for 78 yards on 20 carries. Totals for the 2 games SINCE a huge change was made by Coughlin – 178 yards on 51 carries or a difference of 3.5 yards per carry less after Coughlin’s changes. Which is 3.3 yards per carry down from previous 3 games.

    So what did Coughlin do? He changed 3/5 of the positions on that o-line that to me at least looked better than I’d seen it in years.

    #1- He reinserts O’Hara who had missed 8 straight games, several weeks did little if anything in practice, for the most important game of the year and you saw it yourself he was not fit, not sharp and maybe still hurting, he was outplayed from the word go and including in Green Bay as well.

    #2- Moved Seubert who did an outstanding job at center to guard.

    #3- Moved Diehl who quite frankly is best at guard and now is a terrible left tackle as you’ve seen what Peppers and others did to him there, Coughlin moved Diehl back to left tackle.

    #4- Benched Beattie who had done a great job as the young man is finally getting a chance to play.

    The numbers don’t lie, your own eyes don’t lie, these changes Coughlin made to the o-line because of his
    “great sense of loyalty” in this case O’Hara(surprise, surprise O’Hara defends Coughlin) this loyalty just like Coughlin’s defending of Tim Lewis, of Sheridan, even of Dodge, of Quinn( it is 2 years NOT just this year of Quinn’s terrible special teams), etc. are exactly why Coughlin should be asked politely by Giants management to retire gracefully

    Well to me Coughlin is a stooge. The talent he has got him the 10 wins, his coaching cost them 2. The coach makes the difference between good teams and playoff teams. The last two years have proven that he can’t coach.

  38. dsims7 says: Jan 6, 2011 1:36 PM

  39. xtb3 says: Jan 6, 2011 1:41 PM

    For those of you blaming Manning for Coughlin’s failure, Giants ha Chris Palmer a very capable man as Eli’s QB coach but he mysteriously retired then became a UFL coach so who did Coughlin replace him with? Of course a guy who never coached quarterbacks before but was a TIGHT ENDS coach – A FACT!

    And Eli throws 25 or whatever interceptions!

    BTW- Coughlin was thrilled to accept all the praise for stopping Tiki Barber’s fumble, how is it he couldn’t teach any of these running backs and others not to fumble? Or maybe Coughlin really had absolutely nothing to do with Tiki’s improvement – it was all on his weight training and the strength he gained!

  40. drgfri says: Jan 6, 2011 1:43 PM

    Coughlin is SUCH a crotchety old man. He’s like Grandpa Simpson with an attitude. He may also be the luckiest coach in the NFL.

  41. lucky5927 says: Jan 6, 2011 1:45 PM

    Oh yeah… Eli is a Quarterback Diva who can’t be coached. Whatever! Your absolutely way off base here Brintfatre. You forget the Giants won a superbowl with Eli. He also was 4th in the NFL in passing touchdowns and 5th in passing yards. Sure throws picks. So did Peyton and Brees this year. How many of those were off tipped passes or receivers running the wrong routes? Their were a lot of injuries to the WR core this year. Besides, who would you consider a viable trade or rookie candidate who could come in and win a superbowl next season?

He’s already won a SB, while the Philthadelphia EGirls have yet to EVER win one..They get to the playoffs every year and then Fall flat on their face..

    ^^^^

    LOL at YOU, moron. Its always so easy to pick out the fraud football fans and thos who know nothing about the game when the best they got is “how many superbowls have you won?”.

    Its a totally irrelevant argument sincce the topic of SB’s was not brought up. He said the Eagles own the Giants, and if you look at the last, what, eight meetings, INCLUDING in the oh so important playoffs, the Eagles have how many wins? Oh what they won them all?

    WELL THEN I GUESS THE EAGLES DO OWN THE GIANTS, DONT THEY NUMBNUTS?

    You wanna discuss titles, fine Giants win. BUT, in recent meetings, (which was the topic here) the Eagles win hands down.

    To hide behind PAST glory to cover up the fact the Eagles have been beating on the Giant the last however many years and to cover up the ineptitude of your team is not only moronic and irrelevant, its PATHETIC and shows just how little football knowledge you have.

    Im sure those past titlles were real comforting when Desean Jackson was running up the sideline and basically ending your teams season. Your team choked, has NO heart, and are frauds.

    In past years, they have been great. Kudos. But most recently, when it matters, you know the PRESENT TIME, they have STUNK.

    EOD.

    ______________________________

    Not completely true. Coulghin and the Running Backs coach insisted the Tiki carry the ball differently – which slowed his speed, but kept his hands on the ball. His strength and conditioning helped bring his speed up again. It was a joint effort, but Tiki even said in a interview that he didn’t want to carry the ball differently but the coach made him.

  44. brintfatre says: Jan 6, 2011 3:05 PM

    Manning didn’t win the Superbowl for the Giants the Defense did and everybody knows it.

    And, if it weren’t for Manning the Giants would still be in the hunt this season.

    With the soft out of division schedule and the complete collapse of both the Cowboys and Redskins organizations Manning’s QB rating should be high. Face it, Eli is a celebrity Rex Grossman. It’s a good thing for him he was famous before hand…

    pedsaregoodforsports -Let me know when the Eagles win a Lombardi Trophy there princess… Till then they are the perennial over achievers in the season and choke artists in the Payoffs..So You’ve won 6 straight over the Giants..Big Deal..The Giants won 9 straight vs the Eagles from 97-01, it happens..At least the Giants with Coughlin and Eli have proven the can win the big one, something Andy “Cheese Steak” Reid and Michael “Captain K9″ Vick will never do.. I cant wait till the Eagles get Punked out on Sunday at home in Philthadelphia in front of all their battery Chucking, mouth breathing, Camaro driving, Mullet wearing, Santa Booing, loser ass Fans!!!

    Nice look at Coughlin with his players LOL

    I’ll admit my desire to see Coughlin leave the Giants was purely selfish. I’m still fond of Cowher and would like to see him get a good team in the NFC as far removed from regular competition with the Steelers as possible. Most comments on PFT reflect self-interest and team allegiance, but heaven forbid people admit it.

    The players seem pretty loyal to Coughlin and most of the fans seem happy to keep him. It’s good that the Maras are not knee-jerk people who kick a guy to the curb at the first sign of problems. We’ve got a division winner with a worse record than the Giants. Despite late season meltdowns this year, Coughlin is only three years removed from a Super Bowl. He deserves another shot.

    Wonder where that leaves Cowher …

    Xtb3- Get over it man…TC is going to be the Coach of the New York Football Giants for at least 2 more years, maybe 3..The guy hasnt had a loosing record in 6 years..He has taken them to the playoffs 4 times, won 2 division Titles and a Super Bowl in that time frame.. Who besides Bellichek, Payton Tomlin have had a better 6 year run? You cant fire a guy with that track record…

  48. demo3356 says: Jan 6, 2011 3:42 PM

    brintfatre- you are a typical Clueless Eli hater..Let me know when you actually start to watch Football games and We’ll talk..Eli was the SB MVP and is the first QB in the storied History of the NYG to throw for 4000 yds in back to back years..This in a run first offense that plays many games in bad weather..Is he Peyton, Brady, Brees or Rogers? Hell no, but comparing him to the stiff that is Rex Grossman is complete ignorance.. Eli is a top 10 QB that had a turnover filled season due to loosing 6 of his top 7 WR’s to injury and having a TON of injuries on his Offensive line..He’ll be back in the SB in the next year or 2 at worst..Book it

    Why would I waste my time? Because then it will be the third grade argument ” We got more than you do, nah nah nah nah nah nah” blah blah blah bullsh**. Yeah 97-01, ten years ago, again I bet those were real comforting when AGAIN the Eagles whipped the Giants twice this year, capped off by a historic collapse and choke job. Please bro, you need to look in the mirror and face the fact your team punked out the last two seasons down the stretch.

    GB has had a TON of injuries, but they still blew out the Giants and they didnt cry about it.

    Its never Eli’s fault. Gimme a break. He road the coattails of a defense that had God on their side for one season. He STINKS and is over rated because of his name. As one person put it, hes a famous Rex Grossman. LOL.

    Have fun wachin the other teams in the playoffs this year along with the rest of the Giants team and fan base.

    But I guess you could put in the DVD of the SB a few years ago. That should ease the pain.

    Loser.

    dont count on coughlin even being there next time they play either in a shortened lockout season or next year.

    we’ve publicly seen in the last part of the season 3 blowups concerning this old man now out of control. a class organization doesn’t need a head coach telling their customers who dont approve of his performance and pay thousands for PSLs and tickets “that they can line up and kiss his old ass”! Nor do they need their coach who says “we win or lose as a team” run out onto the middle of the field in front of 80,000 fans live and millions on TV and start screaming at the punter as if it was him alone who lost that game.

    Fewell in the 2nd Dallas game enraged after Felix Jones ran that screen pass from Kitna into the endzone , Fewell ran at Coughlin screaming in anger obviously because Coughlin went over Fewell’s head and changed the coverage.

    Coughlin just shot himself in the other foot this time – he won’t be standing for long

    I love how touchy E Girl fans get when you throw it in their face that they never won a Super Bowl..It instantly hits a nerve every time… I guess I would be really touchy about the subject too if my team was one of the 5 or 6 teams that haven’t ever hoisted the Lombardi Trophy despites being around all 45 years..Being in the company of the Browns, Bengals, Lions, Cardinals, Bills etc would SUCK! Especially when the other teams in the division have combined for 11 Super Bowls.. I keep bringing it up because the fact that we just won one a few years ago makes it easier to get over a season or 2 of falling short and not reaching expectations..But that is something Philthy E Girl fans dont understand..

  53. xtb3 says: Jan 6, 2011 4:43 PM

    rex ryan has more class than that 65 year old nutbar

    at least ryan thinks smelling, licking, sucking bare feet is a personal affair

    coughlin thinks for asses it should be public

    Keep living in the past buddy. And if the Eagles win on Sunday? Are you gonna crawl back under the rock you came from?

    Im not touchy about it, the arugment isnt even an argument. When that is the topic of discussion, I will stay out of it. I have nothing for ya.

    But its sad that that is all you got to cover up the fact your team has choked big time since that LUCKY season.

    Again, enjoy the games this weekend, youll be getting just as many snaps as any Giants player !!!

  55. demo3356 says: Jan 6, 2011 5:24 PM

    Do you really think TC who came up as a WR coach and has always been an offensive guy really went and changed Fewells coverage schemes? Really? Or is it that he lit Fewell up for his defense giving up that ridiculous TD and the Camera’s caught Fewells response..Lets not get crazy here…

  56. demo3356 says: Jan 6, 2011 5:26 PM

    I also can say that 95% of the Giants fans I talk to love that he told the media to kiss his ass..The guy is probably tired of hearing every 2 weeks that he is on the hot seat and that Bill Cower is taking his job..

    @xtbc…
    the Giants beat jacksonville, they were plus .500,

    so how how do you make it to two championship games with Jacksonville and not win a playoff game?

    get your facts straight.

    ———————

    Get MY facts straight? How about you look in the mirror?

    Jacksonville was 8-8 or in english language not over .500.

    And I repeat since the YEAR 2000 to the year 2010, Coughlin did NOT win a playoff game in 9 of those years, he did not coach one of those 11 years and with Spagnuolo’s defense winning 4 playoff games in 2007 that was the only year of the last 10 he coached that he even won a playoff game.

    yes coughlin stuck his nose in. he is always was a control freak exactly why he kept tim lewis and sheridan all season ruining those seasons. then pulled it on an enraged fewell. and coughlinvslinked away with his tail between his legs.

    sorry but i never heard handley, a-rod, dave brown, kerry collins, etc. ever tell fans who pay thousands for seat licenses and hundreds for each ticket “to kiss my @ss”.

    coughlin has disgraced this team. screams and singles out a punter in front of 80,000 people and millions on tv like a rank amateur coach now tells fans to kiss his behind.

    giants under wellington mara were a class organization.

    this old freak is out of control and drunk with power.

    tisch should step in and do what is needed – fire him immediately.

    Still waiting to hear ONE example from you, huejackson.

    To the poster who said that it was the Giants defense that won that SuperBowl; that defense was solid, but it was clearly Eli Manning and the offense that came back and won it at the end. New England had taken the lead from the Giants defense, and then …… the rest of that sentence still makes me sick.

    Damn Manning and David Tyree.

  60. xtb3 says: Jan 7, 2011 12:53 AM

    Coughlin beat ONE winning record team this season -Chicago AND in 2009 did the same beating only ONE winning record team – Dallas.

    With an outstanding roster and he’s happy with this mediocrity. 6 losses in a row to Philadelphia.
