7. Leaving New York: As far back as the 1950s, when two of their assistant coaches were Vince Lombardi and Tom Landry, the New York Giants have trained their assistant coaches to become great head coaches. And as teams around the league continue searching for the next great head coach, history suggests the place to look is the Giants. Four former Giants assistant coaches -- New Orleans' Sean Payton, New England's Bill Belichick and Denver's John Fox and New York's Tom Coughlin -- are head coaches in this weekend's divisional playoff games. So half of this weekend's head coaches once were Giants assistant coaches. Each cut his teeth in New York, each became a coordinator in New York and each has gone on to reach or win the Super Bowl with another franchise. If nothing else, New York's tradition with assistant coaches means other teams should, at the very least, be inquiring about Giants offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride and defensive coordinator Perry Fewell. Fewell and Gilbride, along with up-and-coming assistant coaches Larry Izzo, David Merritt Sr., Markus Paul, Sean Ryan and Tom Quinn, give New York another generation of quality coaches who have learned from Tom Coughlin, whose job security, finally and fortunately, no longer needs to be questioned.

I think Spags could still wind up being a great head coach with the rams being his Cleveland Browns stop. BB was a flop there. Did he have another stop prior to pats? Jets maybe or no

Nope. He was with the jets in 99, then when Tuna resigned he was head coach for about 5 seconds before kraft through money and jack daniels at him.

But lets be frank here. Belichick was on 2 giants super bowls, a patriots super bowl, and a jets afc title game, as a defensive coordinator. Spags had one super bowl in 2 seasons as a giant coordinator and has done nothing else.

He put his tail between his legs when he was fired from Cleveland and rejoined Bill Parcells in New England as his DC. That propelled them to their SB loss to the Packers in 1996.

Parcells scurried out of New England to the Jets and took BB with him, reaching the AFC title game in 1998.

When Parcells resigned after the 1999 season he named Bill Belichick his successor and at a press conference BB was named Jets head coach. 24 hours later there was a 2nd press conference announcing his resignation -- "I resign HC NYJ - BB" was the full text of his resignation letter.

He went to New England, and the rest is history. Same old Jets! How does it feel knowing the guy who is arguably one of the greatest coaches of all time was yours for 24 hours and quit?
