    Yes, they didn't have players worth keeping around. That's why they cut them. That plus the fact that teams have to spend a certain amount of cap money every year answers the question of why they've...

    It's weird. I feel like there are basic things fans should not have to be super football nerds to know. Salary cap is something easy to know about. The schedule is another one. Every year there are...

    To answer your first question, the answer is no; you're thinking of Vic Fangio. Mangini was actually the tight ends coach under Harbaugh. And for two you're right but at this point it's like looking...

    The best part of all this "what about Tom's influence in picking players" discussion is that when he worked with Ernie Accorsi the two of them nailed every draft. Look at '04 through '06. Do we think...

    Can't even link to his wikipedia page because of his name.

    Oh me, oh my. Can you imagine what would have happened in 2013 if they'd lost one more game? Maybe they don't take the best wide receiver in the league in the 2014 draft.

    Another reason I'm glad fans have nothing to do with what goes on in the locker room. Imagine if a player had this mentality? We'd kill him for it.

    Except the difference is that the players have never complained about Coughlin.

    Gilbride's offense had run its course. Everyone could see it.

    And as far as Fewell goes, has anyone heard any...

    Yeah, for sure. I'm wondering if the risk is worth it if he's evolved at all over the last few years. No way to know it unless he's hired, though.

    It'd be interesting to see if the risk is worth it to Giants brass, though. Coughlin had the same reputation coming in. It's all about how a guy adapts, whether it be on the field or in dealing with...

    True. He would have Belichick to go for advice about it.

    But that'd probably be the one thing that would keep him from being successful here. He is an intense, tightly-wound guy.

    Nick Saban?

    He has ties to the organization. Giants brass wanted him ('97) but couldn't get him first time around. Sounds like Coughlin in '04.

    I have one major criteria for the most brutal losses:

    1) Can the team respond afterward? If so, how do they?

    So, if they can't respond at all or respond poorly, then the loss feels worse.
