Here's a difference for everyone that may surprise:

Belichick's teams rarely miss the playoff. Coughlin's teams often miss the playoffs.

TC's one of the best coaches of his era, but BB is one of the best of all time. Legendary.

When Tom Coughlin gets to the Super Bowl, he makes the best out of it and so far at Belichick's expense.

Funny but true. lol. Both coaches still have many more years of coaching ahead them. Hopefully for our sake it remains that way when we face those guys.

I strongly disagree. I don't recall Belichick teams having a history of 2nd half collapses

Belichick's teams are usually pretty consistent and have their rough parts of the season in the beginning. Ours usually seem to come in the late middle to end of the season.

I don't know if I'd call 4 times in 9 years "often". Let alone making the playoffs 4 years in a row 2005-2008. And really in 2010 missing the playoffs at 10-6 deserves an asterisk. So really missing the playoffs 3 times in 9 years *.

In fact the opposite is true. Belichick's teams get insane in the 2nd half.

I once looked up their December record (and I'm too lazy to do it again) and it's something ridiculous like over .900 winning percentage.

Belichick is good at in game adjustments Coughlin isn't.

Maybe not, but they have been in the hunt plenty of times. Can't win them all but they have been in position to. Sour grapes is sour grapes. I only say that because I see multiple posts in various forums bringing up the Spy Gate thing which doesn't seem to have affected them as much as everyone believes.


Coughlin is more of an offensive minded coach while Belichick is a defensive guy by the very nature of their beginnings. Coughlin was the wide receivers coach for the Giants under Parcells while Belichick was the defensive coordinator.

TC's one of the best coaches of his era, but BB is one of the best of all time. Legendary.Truth. BB is also more decisive with personnel and coaches. When a player starts to lose their edge up there, they are gone in an instant. BB operates from more of a merry go round with his coaching staff. He hires the best and brightest young coaches and often can't keep them for long but in the mean time he has a great team. TC prefers to settle in on coaches that don't seem to be in demand much because they are, in the end, not special see Gilbride and Fewell. TC gains a bit from continuity. BB gains alot from young brilliance and a continual inflow of new concepts/ideas/energy.
