There are six NFL teams looking for head coaches (at the moment), and none of them are in New York.
While there have been questions about the future of 67-year-old Giants head coach Tom Coughlin, they’re not coming from ownership there.
Giants boss John Mara just told reporters he wants Coughlin back on the sidelines next year.
“We still have every confidence in him,” Mara said, via Bob Glauber of Newsday.
Mara also mentioned “I think our offense is broken,” which seemed obvious after Eli Manning had a career-high 27 interceptions. That assessment falls in line with the “disconnect” wide receiver Victor Cruz mentioned recently as well.
That might convince Mara to declare his intentions toward free agent wide receiver Hakeem Nicks soon, so the Giants can have an offseason on the same page this coming year.
But giving Coughlin the opportunity to oversee it is the stable and prudent play at a time when other franchises make too many moves, all of them wrong.
