    FOR NEW YORK GIANTS' HEAD COACH TOM COUGHLIN, THE HOT SEAT IS NOW FOREVER COOLED

    FOR NEW YORK GIANTS' HEAD COACH TOM COUGHLIN, THE HOT SEAT IS NOW FOREVER COOLED

    "The crickets are getting a bit of the spotlight now as the “Fire Tom
    Coughlin
    ” chants have subsided and the hot seat talk is a distant memory.
    It’s quiet on the New York Giants coaching front lately.

    To many, it didn’t make sense—the “clean house” banter. The team wasn’t
    giving up on their coach and they surely weren’t speaking ill of him to the
    media during the regular season weeks. The Giants don’t get rid of a head coach
    after a few proverbial bumps in the road; the organization is more loyal than
    most and believe in continuity. It was the supposed experts that initiated the
    weekly topic; some fans just followed suit. It was said not long after super
    Bowl XLVI that the Head Coach’s “hot seat” was retired. Tom
    Coughlin
    may have had quite a bit of attention on him (umm, NYC market), but
    the continued pressure came more from within the 65-year old coach. He looked in
    the mirror before he looked elsewhere for possible reasons for any faltering. He
    was not bigger than his team.

    Coughlin pays attention to detail and is disciplined in his coaching manner.
    Why not better the team by changing the approach to his older coaching style?
    The Giants are still a young team with many new players, meaning different type
    of receptiveness from that of his 2007 audience. He used his assistant coaches
    as the branches of communication that they are. Personal bonds were built and
    clarity of a common goal was achieved. All In. The tradition that is New York
    Giants football
    remains with Coughlin and trickles down through every coach, assistant coach and
    trainer, eventually reaching every player. It was just a matter of how to convey
    the knowledge and the message of Giants Pride.

    Tom
    Coughlin
    has Big Blue at a 74-54 regular season Win-Loss record since 2004
    (almost a 58% win percentage) when he was announced head coach after sitting out
    of football in
    2003. His post-season record is 8-3, an astounding 73% win percentage. Oh, then
    there’s those two Lombardi trophies. The man holds better post-season stats (in
    a shorter amount of time) with the Giants than his supposed/projected
    replacements: Bill Cowher, Steve Mariucci and Jon Gruden. The clamor should stop
    at some point after the proof, no? Eh, ask Eli Manning how that goes.


    One last (surprising) non-topic as of late is the contract situation of the
    two-time Super Bowl-winning Head Coach. Coughlin is still only under contract
    through 2012. There’s absolutely no doubt that TC will be an important returning
    part of the Big Blue machine. There’s absolutely no doubt that John Mara and
    Steve Tisch fully support their coach. There’s also absolutely no doubt that
    Tom’s focus is on the New York Football Giants, not himself.

    Well, there's no such thing in NY sports (Joe Torre wins 4 in 5 years and gets them in the playoffs 14 years in a row and he's gone).

    But Coughlin's got a LONG leash and would have to screw up many, many years in a row for the seat to be hot again. I really thought Coughlin was on the Torre path and it was time to let go in 2011, glad I was wrong.

    Besides, Tom's in rare territory now, and providing he doesn't quit on us after rookie camp like Parcells, he'll be making the footprints somebody else will have to follow.

    Coughlin will coach the Giants until either
    A) he retires
    B) he dies

    We could see an 80 year old coach Coughlin on the sidelines and I'd be fine with it. He's a great coach and guys like him don't come around often. I would say he's on par with Belicheck as the two best in the league and one of the best in history.

    next week would be a good time to play a joke on TC by saying we'd like you to train your successor this season, a guy like rob ryan... & then in '13 we will put you in our ring of honor

    tc is the man. never understood some of the hate for him. strength of schedule and injuries are the main reason for the 2nd half of the season schedule record imo. and for people that have looked and focused at that then look at the playoff record and goliath teams the gmen took down in them under tc. i know you can argue players are responsible for all that so look at the stuff that is unarguable that tc handled.

    i think he still has the best win% for challenges in nfl history. hc clock and t/o management has been about if not the best in the nfl since he's been here. no doubt he fixed tikis fumbling coin flip and t/os or no to to get the wind for kicking.

    tc is the man .

    Ive wondered what people around the NFL now think of COughlin after his 2nd Super Bowl. He is probably now into the Top 15 All time NFL Coaches

    I was thoroughly perplexed while clicking the link as the FOREVER COOLED part was omitted in the title. So it read the "Hot Seat is Now".

    He's close to it.

    Even before the post season this past year, he was tied for 19th all time with his career regular season record. Before his 4 post season wins and the SB.

    Another couple years pacing as he has as the Giants HC, and he will be in the Top 15 All Time, no doubt.
