TOM COUGHLIN WANTS TO COACH THE GIANTS INTO HIS 70'S (http://network.yardbarker.com/nfl/article_external/tom_coughlin_wants_to_coach_the_giants_into_his_70 s/10473217)

"During an online segment on ESPN.com, NFL insider Chris Mortensen (http://espn.go.com/video/clip?id=7734781) stated
that New York Giants head coach Tom Coughlin wants to coach into his 70's
because of how much he loves Eli Manning.


Im told even at his age, he wants to coach into his 70's. And the reason
why he wants to coach into his 70's is because he loves his quarterback Eli
Manning, said Mortensen.</p>


Coughlin will turn 66 right before the 2012 regular season begins. I would
think Manning has at least another five to six years left in him. I dont see
Coughlin retiring unless he ends up getting fired somehow or Manning
retires."</p>

I think a 4 or 5 year contract would be reasonable.

I don't know why but I'm thinking more like extendtwo years...Its not like he needs the money is it really that important to be guaranteed a job and payfor 5...Idk they can add years down the road if all is well....

And the issue is....he has won 2 Superbowl in 4 years, give him whatever he wants

The front office thrives on continuity. I believe they want Coughlin and Glbride to ride into the sunset WITH Eli, not ahead of him. We have what one could argue is the best WR duo in the NFL and they are Y O U N G enough to stay here as ling as Eli is the QB.

They could make worse decisions than to sign Coughlin to a long term deal. They can afford it, it doesn't affect the CAP, and I just don't see TC looking at exorbitant $$$.

Helping his cause, is the tremendous shape he keeps himself in.

Interestingly enough, after the Super Bowl win, John Mara was asked about TC's future and the first thing he said was about what great shape TC is in.

man I know no more about what this front office is thinking or what TC wants than anybody else around here....I could see a two year deal just a feeling I havebased on nothing...just making conversation...Now if TC is asking for a 4 or 5 year deal I can surely see that happening and I agree I doubt he would be asking for big dollars...I wasn't lobbing for anything herereally</P>

If you believe the past foretells the future, he'd have two more rings in five years.

since peyton isnt a colt anymore, and both he and brady, and to an extent Brees, are getting up there in age....

the giants and packers have the best situation at QB with respects to the HC/OC...

think about that for a sec...i said this months ago, but really, we are spoiled. everyday we should be thankful that we as fans of the giants are in this situation...

25 or so other teams would KILL to be in our situation.

Plus, Eli is not going to stop getting better. WHy would TC not want to stay with him? He's got a player coach on the field on offense...seriously, not ONE losing season since he's been the starter, lmfao, its amazing that so many were ready to run both TC and Eli out of town...

The following are things I believe, I can't defend them with facts - so here goes.

Tom Coughlin is a principled man and respects others who are principled and dedicated to the tasks they choose for themselves. He works for an Owner(s) who are of the same mind. He has a talented QB (Field General, if you will) of the same mind. His son-in-law (the father of his grandchildren) plays for him and is, to my knowledge, also a principled person. He has good men who used to play for him (Michael Strahan, for instance) who speak in his support. He has talented young players who are also quality people (Hakeem Nicks, JPP) who are attentive to his instruction. He has good men serving on his staff (Gilbride, Fewell and others) who represent his way of of presenting the the team as 'family'.

I hope he does coach into his 70's - both for his good and for my own good as a fan - because I believe the Giants will be figuring out how to get more than 4 Lombardi's on a ring if he does.

But then I'm always the optimist.

So am I. I feel good about what we have here, and don't see any reason we can't win a few more Lombardi's before Eli decides to retire. Then again I personally think that Eli has more then 5-6 years left in him.

He actually started to look younger at the end of the season. But then again, winning will do that to you.

If he keeps winning Super Bowls, I don't care if he coach us from the afterlife... he stays if he wins. He could be in an oxygen tank in the sidelines, and I would not care as long as we won... he could be sunk into a formaldehyde tank and I would not care as long as we keep collecting Lombardi trophies.

I'm just reminded of the end of the 2010 season where we fell apart and missed the playoffs with a 10-6 record. Everyone wanted Tom and Eli out of town. With the shortened off season, ownership wanted continuity and resigned Tom. Eli responded with his best season as a pro, and we have another Superbowl title.

I love the idea of keeping Tom, Eli, the coaching staff, and the core players together for the next 4-6 years. We have a chance at a title every year.

I stand by what I have been saying for a while. He will coach through the 2014 season where he will have the opportunity to HC a team in the SB in his own house. Either way after 2014 he calls it quits. Just my opinion.

"Let's now head on over to NFL insider Mort Mortenson at the Wonderlic offices. Mort, what do we know?"

Mort: "My exclusive sources are telling me that Tom Coughlin is the coach of the New York Giants. Further, they state that he is negotiating an extension to his contract that will be for more than one more year, maybe even three years. Let's see: If he's 65 now and gets three more years on top of his current year, that's er, um, aw, 70! He'll be 70 when he's done!.

"My sources are telling me Coach Coughlin will be coaching in his 70s."

(later that day on network news, the wire services, WFAN headlines, Channel 2 Sports): ESPN inside sources are saying that Coach Tom Coughlin will be getting a contract that will allow him to coach the Giants into his 70s."

"Coach for life" didn't work out so well for Jo Paterno and it won't work so well here. Let's give TC his final contract, at 3-4 year deal. Allow him to finish off his Hall of Fame resume and retire as a Giant. Let's give him his victory lap during the final season and have his heir aparent installed as "assistant head coach" 2 years before actually assun=ming the head coaching position. In this way we give TC his due but remain in control of the process while insuring a smooth transition.
