Tom Coughlin’s coaching greatness can never be doubted

New York Giants head coach Tom Coughlin celebrates after defeating the New England Patriots in the NFL Super Bowl XLVI football game in Indianapolis Reuters

Tom Coughlin has spent so much of his coaching career being second-guessed for his tough exterior and disciplinarian tactics that we haven’t taken enough time to appreciate just what a great coach he is.

So let’s do that now: Coughlin, who tonight won his second Super Bowl with the Giants, is one of the finest coaches in NFL history. Immediately after the game Coughlin didn’t want to get into where this places him in football history, but there’s no question that he’s among the best coaches ever.

“I’m not about comparisons or anything of that nature,” Coughlin said. “I’m just very thankful, very grateful for the opportunity I’ve had as head coach of the New York Giants.”

For all the talk about how Coughlin can wear his players down with his demanding style, there’s not enough talk about the ways Coughlin builds his players up. After his Giants came from behind to beat the Patriots in Super XLVI, Coughlin said that his message to the team while trailing at halftime was simple: You guys are good enough to win this game.

“When we got into halftime I said, ‘We can play better than this, guys. We’re better than this,’” Coughlin said. “Everybody agreed.”

Coughlin may not want to rank himself among the best coaches in the NFL, but his boss said after the game that he thinks Coughlin is No. 1.

“There’s not one coach in the league I would trade Tom Coughlin for,” Giants owner John Mara said. “We’re blessed to have him, and he’s a two-time world champion.”

    Am I going to shamelessly pat myself on the back for defending Coughlin earlier this season and last?

    Why yes….yes I am.

  2. tfbuckfutter says: Feb 5, 2012 10:19 PM

    Can’t dispute that. Great game by the Giants. And great win for a coach who is perpetually about to be fired.

    The faking of injuries by JPP and Antrel Rolle to kill the hurry up leaves a bad taste in my mouth, but it’s not technically against the rules so I can’t really complain.

  3. ashman23 says: Feb 5, 2012 10:19 PM

    Congrats to the Giants! Eli and Coughlin HOF!

    Suck it Brady

  4. readysethike says: Feb 5, 2012 10:20 PM

    Great game!

  5. msclemons67 says: Feb 5, 2012 10:20 PM

    9-7. Yup, that’s greatness.

  6. snitor says: Feb 5, 2012 10:20 PM

    I bet he would trade Coughlin for Rex Ryan.

  7. duanethomas says: Feb 5, 2012 10:20 PM

    Better then Parcells, has done more with less.

  8. 4512dawg4512 says: Feb 5, 2012 10:21 PM

    Finally! Every year it seems like people are calling for his head. Coughlin/Eli === MAN! I have zero rooting interest in the Giants but people can go ahead and accept Eli and Tom as two of the best

  9. glennsyank13 says: Feb 5, 2012 10:21 PM

    Give the Giants fans a season and 2 weeks. They will challenge it and then forget about that too. So fickle

  10. 4512dawg4512 says: Feb 5, 2012 10:22 PM

    Coughlin that is

  11. snnyjcbs says: Feb 5, 2012 10:22 PM

    Now he is just like Tom Flores winning 2 Super Bowls. Maybe a couple more SB wins and they might start thinking about him for the Hall of Fame, maybe. lol. The Hall of Fame is a JOKE, time to take the know nothing media out of the process.

  12. Sam Von Schamm says: Feb 5, 2012 10:23 PM

    Coughlin’s no doubt a pain in the ass for his players, but his methods obviously get results.

    I dismissed the Giants a month ago when I saw yet another wild-card team barely making the playoffs at 9-7. You’d think I’d’ve learned something from my 2005 Steelers.

    Nope. I still don’t pay attention to the NFC until January. Congrats to the Giants and their fans.

  13. 7pints says: Feb 5, 2012 10:23 PM

    As a neutral observer who does not care for either team, I have to admit it was nice to see the highly unethical Pats lose another one.

  14. docboss says: Feb 5, 2012 10:26 PM

    As a Rams fan I say: Congrats to the Giants and their fans. To the Pats fans: I guess the tape of the Giant’s practice didn’t show up on time! Geniuses (not Belichick) cure disease, invent, save lives. Coughlin is a working class hero. Only NE and Dallas could make me support a NY team, but tonight I am happy. I toast all the Giants and their fans. Salute!

  15. sufferingbirdsfan says: Feb 5, 2012 10:26 PM

    I’d kill for 2 rings. So yeah, respect to Coughlin.

  16. lightofkolob says: Feb 5, 2012 10:27 PM

    Disappointed, esp with the Pats WRs….Letting Moss walk for Branch is still proving to be a terrible move! Think of how good the Patriots could have been with Welker their 2 TEs and Moss. Branch couldn’t get open, and when he could he dropped passes.

    —————————–

    Tom Flores doesn’t get in the hall because he won with a already built team. His 97-87 record would be another reason.

    Seifert isn’t ever getting in with two wins also for the same reasons and he went 114-62

  19. jdandcoke says: Feb 5, 2012 10:28 PM

    giants werent a wild card team….they won the east…..try to pay attention.

    three SB’s appearances and two wins since 2000…its early, but so far the giants are the team of the century.

  20. crimhollingsworth says: Feb 5, 2012 10:28 PM

    Mara and Coughlin have proved all of the haters in NYC wrong. Just like Mara said, he’s got that stack of mail from
    G-MEN NEW YORK FOOTBALL GIANTS fans demanding the firing of Coughlin.

  21. amgdds says: Feb 5, 2012 10:31 PM

    It’s now officially called the Green Zone. Why? Because Coughlin says so

  22. pack0314 says: Feb 5, 2012 10:34 PM

    Team of the century? Please. Coughlin’s a good coach and they’ve done well, but lets have a little levity, just this once.

  23. nesby2 says: Feb 5, 2012 10:34 PM

    Why isn’t anyone stating the obvious here? Eli & Coughlin need to send Wes Welker a super bowl ring because he CLEARLY costed the Pats a “W” in that super bowl with that wide open DROPPED pass that would have sealed the victory for New England. I didn’t care about whether who won the game but I just call it how I see it. Welker proved he’s not ELITE or CLUTCH, he’s a system slot player who fits well w/the Pats.

  24. norton20 says: Feb 5, 2012 10:37 PM

    He is an excellent coach but not taking a knee on the 4 and giving the Pats 57 seconds to beat him was ludicrous. Take the knee, force the timeout to be used, take the kneee again, run the clock to 3 seconds and the Pats never see the ball. They are somewhat lucky Gronkowski didn’t catch the rebound in the end zone on the hail mary.

    Props to the Giants but man that was a very poorly coached last minute and half (both ways as Belichik should have conceded the td earlier to get the ball back with more time than 57 seconds).

  25. gdeli says: Feb 5, 2012 10:37 PM

    That senior citizen did well. BUT…Brady called time out with 45 seconds left when he was on the ground and the refs let it run down to 39 or so THEN the giants have a penalty on THEM and the refs aloow the time to run down to 9 seconds. Is that legit? The giants had the better team today and the giants should thank the goon that injured gronkoski for their win. If welker was taller he would have caught that ball. It’s over. I wish I was in cali over MN. 2 more months of winter. ICK!

  26. orf14fire says: Feb 5, 2012 10:38 PM

    Neither the coach or the slow qb are good; great should not be put in a sentence with either of their names… jb of Norfolk

  27. gb4mn0 says: Feb 5, 2012 10:38 PM

    Congrats Giants!

    51 seasons and still no Lombardi for the hapless slip-shod, 3rd rate expansion franchise in MN. The vikequeefs are the standard of pro-sports underachieving franchises. If the queens were a sick animal you’d euthanize it to put it out of it’s misery. Losers!

  28. beckesng says: Feb 5, 2012 10:38 PM

    18 seconds left. Long pass downfield incomplete. 5 yard penalty on the defense for 12 men on the field. Now the offense loses 9 seconds and gains 5 yards and loses 9 seconds. Is this the new hack a shaq ?

  29. swagger52 says: Feb 5, 2012 10:39 PM

    NFL = WWF…Always NY versus Boston. Its getting old, just like Brady.

  30. Deb says: Feb 5, 2012 10:39 PM

    To me, Coughlin seems to have had a coaching rebirth since the 2007 season. I didn’t like some of the strategies he employed with the Jags, and he seemed too hard line to succeed in his early period with the Giants. But in the last few years he’s really found that coaching sweet spot–and it’s paid off.

    But you still can’t take anything away from Belichick. Even though it didn’t work out, it was a brilliant move to let the Giants score so easily so Brady would get the ball back with time on the clock. As assistants and HCs, these guys have eight Lombardis between them. They’re both exceptional talents.

  31. ianwhetstone says: Feb 5, 2012 10:40 PM

    “there’s no question that he’s among the best coaches ever.”

    Um… yes, there really is.

  32. swagger52 says: Feb 5, 2012 10:40 PM

    Rex Ryan thinks Bernard Pollard is elite.

  33. jdandcoke says: Feb 5, 2012 10:42 PM

    giants have two untainted wins this century….the pats have NONE. im going with the giants.

  34. The Prophet says: Feb 5, 2012 10:46 PM

    I’m sorry but putting together two strings of lucky postseasons does not make you one of the greatest ever. He needs to show a hell of a lot more consistency and string together a quality run of at least 10 games. I’ve never seen Coughlin’s Giants play well for more than 6 weeks at a time…

  35. bleedsoe9mm says: Feb 5, 2012 10:46 PM

    so no firing talk next year

  36. judsonjr says: Feb 5, 2012 10:48 PM

    Tom coaches his team on how to recover their own fumbles.

    2007 NFCCG they fumbled 5 times and only lost 1. Today they fumbled 3 times and lost none.

  37. kvanhorn87 says: Feb 5, 2012 10:50 PM

    Congrats Giants fans! Just remember in your glory the absolute hatred that many of you spewed at Coughlin every season pretty much the last 5. Guess if you are going to be proven to be dopes, at least you won a super bowl as proof

  39. footballace says: Feb 5, 2012 10:55 PM

    Tom Coughlin is one of the best coaches in the NFL. People seem to forget he also took the Jaguars to the AFC championship game twice.

  40. tommyribs says: Feb 5, 2012 10:55 PM

    Ya – Coughlin really did prove himself, and he has to be in the discussion for the HOF.

    I guess it just goes to show you, in life, if you follow your system, and believe in yourself, and the people around you, good things will happen!

    ———————————————-

    Glad to see I was not the only one to think this was the correct strategy. In fact, I thought they should have taken a knee twice earlier to make the Patriots burn both their timeouts then run the ball up the middle – take the clock down to 10-20 seconds and kick a 30 yard FG. But I was the only one who seemed to think that was a good idea…

  42. bubbagyro says: Feb 5, 2012 11:00 PM

    They did it with both tight ends injured. Give Coughlin credit, but take some away—he was snookered by Belichek at the end when NY allowed to score too soon. Good coach would have foreseen this and made everyone know to stop short.

  43. briang123 says: Feb 5, 2012 11:06 PM

    There is no one luckier than the Giants. We all know the breaks they got today, but let’s go back to the 2 punt return fumbles two weeks ago, the joke of a non-fumble call on Bradshaw in the same game, and the most egregious example, when against the Cardinals Victor Cruz fumbled without being touched no it was called a non-fumble because h supposedly gave himself up. In 35 years of watching football I have never seen that call. It was always a fumble! And no one knew that better than Eli Manning, who did the same thing TWO YEARS IN A ROW against the Eagles and it was called a fumble. If that was called like it should have been, the Giants would be home where they belonged. Luckiest team ever, and very Giants fan knows it.

  44. kayakattack says: Feb 5, 2012 11:10 PM

    So Caughlin was lucky when he took the 96 Jags from a slow start to upsetting a great Broncos team and, He was lucky in 98 when they won the central division, he was lucky in 99 when he only lost to 1 team all season.. He was lucky Taking down the top AFC team in 08 and then tonight.. That’s one lucky Son of a gun… 5 Championship games and 2 Super bowls is lucky? The man should go to Atlantic City then when gets back home if that’s the case

  45. realitypolice says: Feb 5, 2012 11:15 PM

    The success of this team is baffling.

    For God’s sake, they lost 5 out of 6 games LATE in the season.

    They lost twice to the Washington Freakin Redskins twice, including once in WEEK 15!

    Yet they were clearly the stronger team in all of their playoff games.

    I know it sounds absolutely insane, but is it possible that Coughlin keeps them in third gear during the season, using just enough throttle to get to the post season before upshifting?

    And even if you think my theory is ridiculous, will give me credit for my clever football-team-as-car analogy?

  46. orangeinmyblood says: Feb 5, 2012 11:24 PM

    “Coughlin is one of the finest coaches in NFL history”

    Depends on how big your list is, I guess. Top 10? No way. Top 20? Maybe if you are a Giants fan. Top 30? I’ll buy that.

  47. usmutts says: Feb 5, 2012 11:40 PM

    I know this is about Coughlin, not Belichick, but I just saw Belichick’s post-game press conference and, let me say, this guy was pathetically condescending and arrogant to everyone. He simply refused to answer questions, just repeating the same words over and over, usually without even moving his lips. He may be a great coach but not much of a human being. Coughlin, however, gives every evidence of being a genuinely good person. Congrats to the Giants.

  48. yettyskills says: Feb 5, 2012 11:41 PM

    Tom C did amazing things with an expansion team before ever coaching in NY, he’s a HoFer now and somewhere between 10 and 20

  49. kinguga says: Feb 5, 2012 11:52 PM

    =======================

    If Flores’ .527 winning percentage is not enough to get him into the Hall despite two SB wins, Coughlin has reason to worry- his .555 isn’t much better.

    Every one knows the real reason Flores never got in is because he had funny hair.

  52. goldrush36 says: Feb 6, 2012 12:07 AM

    2 years and the hypocrites will be calling for his head. Can’t let the man do his job without trying to backseat drive. Sad because sometimes lucky or not…. he gets results

  53. Herb says: Feb 6, 2012 12:16 AM

    Please let us not underestimate the massive drop that Hernandez had. It’s hard to goose-step into the endzone, “HERNDO,” when you don’t have the ball in your hands.

    I hate the Giants, but I hate the Patriots infinitely more. Congrats Big Blue.

  54. ravenscaps48 says: Feb 6, 2012 12:22 AM

  55. basshawg says: Feb 6, 2012 12:24 AM

    Not scoring when you have a chance is stupid. Giants did the right thing scoring the touchdown. Making Tynes kick a game winner when they’re actually BEHIND is a little more risky than his other game winning kicks (credit due regardless). Give me the 4+ point lead with less than a minute to go all 16 regular season games and thru the playoffs, and I’ll give you the Super Bowl title 7 times in 10 years!!!

  56. burntorangehorn says: Feb 6, 2012 12:30 AM

    Remember when Coughlin rolled into NJ and pissed off a lot of team veterans by actually being a hardass? Remember the leaked reports about how tough he was being on them?

    Yeah, this is the kind of thing that can only happen when you don’t let your veterans get too comfortable and complacent.

    Couldn’t a team technically put their entire team out there?

    You could ensure the offense would not have a successful play, run time off the clock and it only costs you 5 yards!

    Jacksonville Jaguars, dumbest franchise ever. Coughlin should have been their Don Shula, but they fired him so they could get their hands on the underwhelming Jack Del Rio, who actually kept the job longer than Coughlin.

    Coughlin’s teams were perennial Super Bowl champions just 3 or four years into their existence, while the Del Rio Jaguars were always seen as Junior varsity of the AFC, even those rare times when they did luck into good records..

    Think they’d want a re-do?

  60. vman0626 says: Feb 6, 2012 1:47 AM

    coughlin was also the gm in jacksonville as well, which means he not only coached them but built those teams as well.

    flores was a fine coach. possible hof material. but please don’t embarrass yourself by comparing him to coughlin.

    And yet another nonsensical diatribe against the Vikings that has absolutely nothing to do with the game tonight. WHAT is your deal? Seriously.

    Get back on your meds, crawl out of your mommy’s basement and get some fresh air in that head of yours…you know, that round thing that sits about 3 feet from your a$$. Or in your case, I guess there’s really no difference.

    You really do have some issues, don’t you? Get help.

  62. pongonfl says: Feb 6, 2012 3:07 AM

    Thats two games the Giants had to beat the refs and the other team this post season.
    GB was pathetic, but this was nearly as bad.
    Two third down horrible PI calls not made to stop two drives. And an out of no ware holding call to boot.

    But they just keep playing. So level headed, so in the game. Great credit to the players the coach and the GM that built that team.

    I’m sorry but putting together two strings of lucky postseasons does not make you one of the greatest ever. He needs to show a hell of a lot more consistency and string together a quality run of at least 10 games. I’ve never seen Coughlin’s Giants play well for more than 6 weeks at a time…
    =======================
    And yet, Coughlin’s Giants just won the Super Bowl. I could be wrong, but I seem to remember the Pats had a “perfect” season a few years back, until they got to the big game. Green Bay had an almost perfect season this year, and yet they watched tonight’s game from the comfort of homes.

    It doesn’t matter what a team’s record is during the regular season. Obviously they got their mojo at the right time, and THAT, my friend, is what counts. Luck? I’m sure the Pats have benefitted from their fair share of that, too, as all teams have at one time or another.

    Belichek might be a better coach overall than Coughlin, but he still hasn’t figured out a way to beat the Giants in the one game that counts.

    Expected this, and will see more of it, I’m sure.

    The one playoff team the Giants manhandled — Atlanta — there was no mention of this, even though the officiating was slanted in their favor in THAT game.

    The zebras cheated openly for Green Bay, San Francisco AND New England, and the Giants overcame all three. How in TARNATION do you conclude there was luck involved?

  65. tuckyous says: Feb 6, 2012 3:28 AM

    Admittedly, I wanted Coughlin out this year/after this year based on his age alone. However, he coached this squad to an amazing season/finish with a terrible offensive coordinator and a defensive coordinator making a lot of questionable calls all season. Any previous complaints about the red faced grump, especially including my own, are heretofore, invalid. Well played TC.

  66. tuckyous says: Feb 6, 2012 3:30 AM

    *Wouldn’t say he’s one of the greatest by any means, but he did a damn good job this year pulling this squad together, especially after all those injuries and with Rolle being a loudmouth distraction. Watch and learn Rexy.

  68. goawayeverybody says: Feb 6, 2012 3:42 AM

    I’m thrilled the Giants won but it had nothing to do with Couglin. His game plans are always way too conservative. In this case, the Patriots, namely Wes Welker, just choked and choked badly. Welker makes that catch, it’s game over.

  69. orf14fire says: Feb 6, 2012 7:31 AM

    The Guy wins 2 superbowls by Bradys receivers not playing up to Brady’s level now all I hear is HOF for both the coach and the qb. That’s funny to me considering earlier in the season and last season you giant fans wanted them gone. That’s weird you usually don’t want to get rid of HOF coaches and qb. That’s right they barley won 2 superbowls against the worst ranked defense in the league. .. yeah sure they are HOF GUYS RIGHT THERE. Tired of these ignorant fans. Know your stats and players before you comment on the greatness of a player. Jb from norfok

  70. jerrykill4pres says: Feb 6, 2012 8:24 AM

    I said before, and i don’t have a dog in this fight… But said it to packer fans… Because of their constant bragging that “we won last year”…. It doesn’t matter how you finish the prior year, it doesn’t matter how you do in the preseason, or during the season. When the playoffs start everyone is 0-0.. Giants are #1.. They just won the superbowl. Thier qb isn’t the best “statistically” in the league, but he’s darn good in the clutch… And i’ve said time and time again, this should take Coughlin off the “hot seat” i hope… He’s a darn good coach. One i would love for the Vikings to have. Congrats to the G-men and their fans. Hat’s off to a good game and a solid “team” win.. They can run the ball, pass the ball, and play some good, solid defense. It doesn’t matter “how” you get there. The fact is, they “got” there, and got the job done.

    Dan Patrick was classless after the Giants winning the Super Bowl asking owners about firing Coughlin. NBC should fire that whole Sunday Night Football pregame crew. Guys like Patrick think they are cute becasuse they have a national talk show on the radio. He produces one thing TALK and his was cheap at the trophy presentation.

    Dear Wayne Weaver,

    Thanks for firing Coach Coughlin and hiring Jack del Rio.

    That sure was a great move.

    Signed,

    Jaguar Fans

    Coughlin is a great coach… has been for a long time now. With experience he just keeps getting better.

    If the Giants lose more than 2 games in a row next year, the dirt bags in the NY media will be calling for his head. Some things will never change.

    Somebody above said there was no good luck involved in this victory for the Giants. Yes, there most certainly was. The Giants put the ball on the ground 3 times in this game and each time they did not lose possession. They lucked out there…. big time. However, that is just the way the ball bounces. They played a good game otherwise and made the plays in the end to win. Congrats to the NY Giants on their victory. I’m a Pats fan but I’m very happy for Tom Coughlin regardless.

    I remember last year when people were screeming for his head after a 10-6 record. I remarked then that most teams make the playoffs with that record and a lot of fans would love to have this guy as a coach at 10-6. Now he wins another SB for the Giants. I am just wondering how soon they will be after his head again? Give the man credit as a coach as he knows how to get the most from what he has. I’m not a Giants fan, but congrats to them for another SB win.
